For the big game, Traffic will be offering specials including $12 pitchers of Coors Light, $18 buckets of Coors Light, and $30 buckets of 30 wings.
Social Bar Irish Pub and Lounge -- located in the Theater District, so it's close to many of the city's top hotels -- offers 20 flat screen TVs throughout the bar, making it easy to find a spot to catch the game. They'll be hosting their 2nd Annual Super Bowl Party, with a premium open bar from kickoff until the end of the game, passed hors d'oeuvres, a full buffet, and prizes. Giants greats will also be on hand to sign autographs and memorabilia.
