As the age-old question asks... Are you ready for some football?!?

Ready or not, the Bills are set to start their 50th season next week Monday against the New England Patriots. Kickoff is at 7 pm. Applicants for the Bills Left Tackle position are asked to report to Foxboro 90 minutes prior to kickoff.

The Harp has provided us with a pair of tickets to the Bills/Pats game on December 20 in Buffalo! We'll be raffling them off on Monday night, so you must be present to win.

With the start of a new season, we'd like to pass along a few notes, reminders, and requests regarding Game Day at the Harp:

1.) The tables on the main floor of the Harp (in front of the stage) are reserved for customers ordering from the menu. If you're going to sit there, we ask you to order from the menu, and, of course, respect (and tip!) your wait staff. If you don't want to order from the menu, there are more tables near the front of the bar and in the lower bar area.

2.) There are some new TVs sprinkled around the bar. This may necessitate some changes to traffic patterns, so please bear with us as we try to work out the best arrangement. Please keep the walkway and steps clear.

3.) Any questions, comments or, especially, complaints, about service on Sunday -- including TV channels -- should be addressed to a member of the Executive Committee first. Please do not approach Harp staff yourself. Chances are, one of us can handle your issue, or we will work on your behalf to resolve the situation. By keeping things streamlined we can all enjoy a better gameday experience. Matt, Chris, Jeff or George can typically be found in the lower-bar area.

4.) Chicken Wing Etiquette: Please be courteous to your fellow Bills Fans, and take only the number of wings that you, personally, will eat. Please do not take a huge plate for everyone in your group, because this is wasteful and deprives other fans the opportunity to have some. If you want a plate of wings to share, you can order one off the menu. Please ask your server.
