The Nuyorican Poets Cafe has a 2-story screen to watch the Super Bowl

As you may have heard, the Super Bowl is Sunday ... anyway, passing this along... part of an events email from the folks at The Nuyorican Poets Cafe, 236 E. Third St. between Avenue B and Avenue C.

On Sunday, join us for a Super Bowl Party with pizza, snacks and drink specials. Watch the Baltimore Ravens battle the San Francisco 49ers on our two-story screen (the biggest screen on the Lower East Side!) $7 tix include free food.

Please note that use of a vintage Sports Illustrated cover of the 49ers does not imply any endorsement in the game.

Dowager Countess of Downton Abbey would be asking, 'what is a superbowl'?

I know they need $$$ to help replace the heating system. I don't fault them for this. The neighborhood is now full of jockstraps who watch sports who would never dream of going into the Nuyorican Poets Cafe.

Sad but it is our reality. Frat boys everywhere.

I speaking with an acquaintance that teaches oboe at the Julliard. He was complaining that a concert in which he was to play was scheduled for this Sunday night. I asked him if attendees to these types of shows tend to also be football fans. He replied "Not really, but in this instance the oboe player to football fan correlation is 100%".

Moral: Stereotype at your peril

Maybe they are going to lure all the jocks into the cafe to watch the game only to spring some poetry on them!

It could be dicey, so they need to make sure they are providing $7 of value (free food in this case) in addition to the game itself.

But hundreds of restaurants do it every Super Bowl Sunday, so it should be fine. Only becomes a problem when it is obviously a viewing fee/fundraiser.
