Bars Where You Can Watch The Bills Game On Thanksgiving 2019

Our very own Buffalo Bills playing their hearts out on Thanksgiving Day, the football-iest holiday there ever was, is honestly an amazing early Christmas gift.

We couldn’t be more thrilled that Thanksgiving dinners all over Western New York will be paired with some good ol’ (hopefully) Bills football this year. If you’re staying in, here’s to having a cool aunt that won’t mind speeding up the meal to make it to the couch in time for kickoff. May the odds be ever in your favor in terms of getting a good seat.


If you’re planning on heading out to a bar to enjoy the big game and looking for a place that’ll be open, our guess is that you won’t have to look far. But we decided to roundup the ones we know about, just in case the bar owners of Buffalo eat a little too much turkey. You can count on the following spots to be open and probably playing your Buffalo Bills loud and proud.
