The Big Apple Browns Backers of NYC will be hosting our 2018 NFL Draft watch party on Thursday, April 26th at 7:30pm at our official viewing location, Brother Jimmy’s Murray Hill.

Everyone knows the NFL Draft is essentially the playoffs for Cleveland Browns fans. It’s the one night where we can forget our terrible losing record the year before and have delusional visions of grandeur about how this draft class will finally be the one to lead us to greener pastures.

Come join us on this special night as we irrationally chant “SUPER BOWL! SUPER BOWL!” and watch us draft two QBs with the 1st and 4th picks.

Just head down the steps to the basement level where you’ll enter our Cleveland safe-haven, with over 12 giant TVs and projectors, lots of seating, a full bar and a team of dedicated waitresses.

Effective immediately, we’re moving our location from Union Square to Brother Jimmy’s Murray Hill and re-branding as the Big Apple Browns Backers.

We’re still your home for all future Cleveland Browns, Cavs and Indians watch parties in New York City, but we’re getting a well deserved upgrade and face-lift.

We’re also the same folks running the show — Noah, Sean, Lexi and yes, the beloved Shot Penguin.

Formerly the Union Square Browns Backers, we are using this opportunity to better serve Cleveland sports fans in the Big Apple. Over the past 7 years, we’ve grown to become THE destination for all Cleveland sports in NYC, with crowds topping 700+ for Cavs and Indians playoff games. Thank you, the fans, for all your dedication and support.

Because of this, our loyal friends at Brother Jimmy’s Murray Hill have renovated their massive basement just for us to create a Cleveland safe-haven for our fans: a full bar with familiar bartenders, full-menu & dedicated wait-staff, 12 TVs plus 2 projectors, full audio, and Cleveland-only food & drink specials.

For Cavs and Indians playoff games, we’ll have the entire bar and dining areas, upstairs and downstairs.

What can you do to help?

1 – Tell your CLE friends that we’ve moved. The Union Square Brother Jimmy’s location is permanently closed to all business.

2 – Give us a positive review on Google. We really appreciate this one. If you feel so kind, give us a positive review on Facebook as well.

3- Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. We won’t spam you with nonsense, but it’s the best way to stay informed about watch-party announcements and the occasional dank meme when applicable.

4 – Officially join our chapter. It’s 100% free and takes 5 mins to join through the Browns Backers Worldwide website.
