Remember when there was nothing really happening on Riverside? That has changed over the past few years as the area has stepped its game up in terms of entertainment options.
The newest attraction on the block is the Midway Field House, a retro-inspired sports bar located in the former space of Antone’s. It’s being put together by the same guys who built The Buzz Mill, one of Austin’s coolest coffee bars. Along with more than 20 big screens showing sports (including a 16 foot screen on the stage), Midway Field House will offer arcade games like ski-ball, shuffleboard, and dome hockey.
To wash down the beer, the food menu will include a Stony’s Pizza kitchen and snacks like pretzels, peanuts, and nachos. There’s also a mini basketball court where you can shoot baskets for a chance at a free stuff.
Midway Field House will have a soft opening on Super Bowl Sunday, February 2. Whether you’re a fan of the Broncos or Seahawks, or not, it’s looking like we’re in for a good game. And of course we’ll see some good commercials.
Like any good football fan, you’re going to want ample amounts of both food and drink during the game. You’ll be happy to know that Stony’s Pizza, jumbo hot dogs, bottomless beer and wells are all things that will be present at Midway’s Super Bowl Party. And if you feel like doing some betting, you can buy squares in a pool to win up to $2000.
There’s also the chance to eat and drink FOR FREE during the entire game. Just visit Do512 and click “Enter To Win”.
