Watch Our Eagles Ice the Vikings at Pegsicle, La Peg’s Outdoor Ice Bar
On Sunday, January 21, fans from across Philadelphia are invited to watch the 6:40 p.m. NFC Championship Game between the Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles at Pegsicle, the limited-edition outdoor ice bar atLa Peg at FringeArts. Featuring a tailgate-inspired menu to complement the special drinks, the party will be held in the seasonal ice sculpture garden in La Peg’s outdoor Haas Biergarten, which welcomes hundreds of viewers each week in the summer for their popular annual Movie Night Series.
The centerpiece of the garden is Chef-Owner Peter Woolsey’s Eagles-inspired ice sculpture, featuring the team’s iconic logo recreated in ice with a shot luge streaming down the bird’s beak (click here for a rendering) – and Pegsicle itself, where guests are invited to enjoy as they watch our Eagles fly on the big screen beneath the Ben Franklin Bridge.
“Pegsicle has been a party all week long, and we are excited to ‘tailgate’ outdoors during this thrilling play-off game,” says Chef Woolsey, a celebrated chef and amateur ice carver who designed and carved Pegsicle himself (click for photos). Adds General Manager Brad Histand,“I know I’m not the only fan who has attended a game only to be forced to leave by freezing temps, so we’re especially excited that guests will be able to duck inside, warm up, and head right back out to watch the rest of the game during this lively party.”
The tailgate-inspired menu will include:
Buffalo Wings with hot sauce, blue cheese dressing and celery
Pub Burger, an 8-oz. patty on a brioche bun with grilled red onion and bacon jam, raclette cheese, oven-roasted tomato, bibb lettuce and fries
Fast Food Cheeseburger, a 5-oz. patty on a potato roll with onions, pickles, special sauce and Cooper’s sharp cheddar
General Tso’s Tofu Sandwich on a brioche roll with broccoli rabe, sesame aioli and fries
Margherita Grilled Cheese with pesto, tomato jam, mozzarella, provolone and parmesan cheeses on house-made bread
Fried Cheese Curds with marinara dipping sauce
Crudité of pickled and fresh vegetables with ranch, lemon-chive crème fraîche and “French” dressing
Pegsicle will also serve a very special Eagles shot from their popular ice luge: The Underdog, a festive green shot that’s both delicious and warming, available throughout the game for just $3 each (and for $4 on non-gamedays). The full drinks menu for Pegsicle (click to view), which will be available throughout the game, includes:
