The road to victory is upon us.
Super Bowl LII takes place on Sunday, Feb. 4. While fans may be miffed they will not be at game in Minneapolis, Philly businesses are pulling out all the stops for the next best thing. Plus, let’s be honest: if the Birds pull this off, the Philly after-party will be, uh, historic, to say the least.
