PRIME-TIME Browns Watch Party in NYC: Saturday Night, Dec 15th

Baker Mayfield runs through an explosion Cleveland Browns

Join our Cleveland Browns watch party in NYC this Saturday night, Dec 15th vs the Denver Broncos. As a thank you for our loyal patronage, our friends at Brother Jimmy’s are giving away FREE Coors Light for an entire hour before the game (7-8pm).

Kickoff is officially at 8:20pm but be sure to show up early for free beer and to grab prime seats for this PRIME-TIME game.

Brother Jimmy’s is also hosting a PAC-MAN tournament on their massive 12 foot machine the same Saturday night at 7pm. Details & Registration here for anyone interested.

Visiting from out of town? You’ll feel right at home with the Big Apple Browns Backers, the largest Cleveland Browns Backer location in New York City, and arguably the most exciting (and 100% the rowdiest) chapter in the entire country.

As a reminder, Broncos and Steelers fans are NOT welcome in our downstairs CLE-only safe-haven (see Rule 7 & 8), even if you’re attending with a Browns fan. You’ll be asked to leave and go upstairs to the main bar, which has plenty of TVs and seating for shitty teams like that. Continue reading

10 things you need to know about the Big Apple Browns Backers of NYC

2018 will be the 8th year for the Big Apple Browns Backers, the largest Cleveland Browns Backer location in New York City and arguably the most exciting chapter in the entire country. We’re a rowdy bunch and like our CLE sports misery mixed with a healthy dose of alcohol.

We’ve worked hard to build an amazing community of Cleveland fans living in NYC and pride ourselves on welcoming all Browns fans into our flock.

Visiting the Big Apple for the weekend? Cleveland-native that recently moved to NYC? 1st-time fan that’s all aboard the HYPE-TRAIN after watching ‘Hard Knocks’? JOIN US!

We’ve got a massive private room (it’s the entire downstairs level), food & drink specials, and our own bar plus dedicated wait-staff.

Here’s everything you need to know about enjoying your Sunday with the Big Apple Browns Backers:

  1. We only show the Browns game. (All other NFL games can be watched upstairs)
  2. If you refuse a free shot by the Shot Penguin an angel loses it’s wings.
  3. Be nice to your bartender & wait-staff and remember to tip with appreciation.
  4. No reservations. We’re believe in communal / lunch-room seating. Get friendly.
  5. Doors open 75 minutes before kick-off (aka 11:45am).
  6. This is our church: treat the bar and space with respect.
  7. Fair warning: we don’t play nicely with other fans. If for some stupid reason you’re rooting for our opponent that week, you will be asked to leave and go upstairs (this counts for any friends or significant others you might bring).
  8. Steelers fans are strictly prohibited: they will be mocked relentlessly and escorted out by security.
  9. Plate breaking after a tough loss has been known to happen. Please ask management approval beforehand.
  10. And most importantly, always remember: THIS IS OUR YEAR!
