    Hi guys, this is a follow up to a previous question.....Much to my DHs' dismay, our arrival day is on Superbowl Sunday. We are trying to figure out a plan of attack with the goal being him having a fun place to watch the Superbowl while I can take the boys (8&11) and keep them entertained :dance3:


    The easiest for us all would be to stay at our resort (POR) and that way the boys have the arcade/pools ect. I read on Port Orleans.org that the River Roost does have a large screen TV.....so I assume they would have the Superbowl on?

    DH isn't too fussy about environment, a lounge atmosphere would be as good and fun for him as a more exciting sports bar.....but I don't know :confused3 What do you guys think? Would this be a fun option for him.....I just want him to be happy :happytv:

    Thanks for any feedback, and any and all suggestions more than welcome!

    Take care :goodvibes

    The River Roost does play football games; so they will have it on.

    Please say hi to Todd, Holly, and John; the best people on the planet. Todd is the bartender and Holly and John are the servers.,

    Wow. Can I join your family? The saying in our house is "if Momma ain't happy, nobody's happy. If Daddy ain't happy, who cares?!" :rotfl::lmao:

    Another option, if you get there with enough time, is to go to the boardwalk and check out the ESPN Club. I hear it's a pretty cool place. The boys could see the side shows on the boardwalk or also there is an arcade at the ESPN Club.

    Not to be a wet blanket, but on SB Sunday or any sporting event weekend, getting into ESPN is very tough, unless he'd want to get there many many hours ahead of time.

    Even for River Roost, I'd get there a couple hours ahead.

    Seriously, people will be lining up several hours early to get in there.

    We had a 5:00 seating at Kouzzina's last year on Monday night, the week after Thanksgiving and the line to get in was three wide and several feet out the door, plus people were milling around outside.

    And that was on a normal Monday night football night.
