Buffalo Bills fans have showed out in full force for the teams first two away games. Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan even praised the Buffalo faithful, saying “Bills Mafia is for real.” The Bills Backers of northern Kentucky and Cincinnati are trying to keep the team comfortable in hostile territory this weekend.
The group’s Facebook page lists three events around the city this weekend for Bills fans to enjoy. The first event is a Saturday afternoon meet up at Barleycorn’s restaurant and bar in nearby Lakeside Park, Kentucky starting at 2:00. It will be a time for Bills fans to meet one another and get to know each other before the game Sunday.
The second event starts Saturday night at 8:00 at Hofbrauhaus, a German restaurant in Newport, Kentucky. The event is scheduled to last until midnight.
The group is using both events on Saturday to give back to the community as well. The Backers encourage everybody who is attending to bring non-perishable items in order to donate to a local food pantry, United Ministries.
The final event of the weekend is the tailgate. The group will be meeting under the Clay Wade Bailey Bridge in Covington, Kentucky at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday. From that point fans can take a shuttle to the stadium for $1. If you want to join the fun all the group asks is to bring a dish and your own drinks.
No word on the victory party.
