Syracuse Orange theme takes over all three bars beginning at tip-off Saturday night
(716) Food and Sport will host a Syracuse Orange Final 4 watch party for the team's national semifinal matchup against North Carolina on Saturday night (tip-off approximately 8:49 p.m.).
"(716) has been the place to be for every major sporting event," said Dominic Verni, HARBORCENTER vice president of food and beverage. "We had a great atmosphere earlier this month when the UB Bulls hit the court for NCAA Tournament action, and we have seen a nice contingent of Orange fans in each of Syracuse's matchups this spring. We want to provide those fans with a Syracuse-themed atmosphere so they can maximize their viewing enjoyment when the Final 4 tips off Saturday."
The (716) Syracuse Orange watch party will feature the Syracuse-North Carolina matchup on the 38-foot video screen. All three of (716)'s bars will be illuminated in blue and orange to honor the school's colors. Saturday's menu will feature Syracuse-themed food and drink specials highlighted by a chicken and swiss sandwich that is a (716) take on a popular sandwich sold at the famous BBQ and Brew Stand at Syracuse's Carrier Dome. (716) mixologists have concocted "The Orangemen" cocktail, which is a mix of orange vodka, sweet and sour mix and orange soda.
