The Strong Survive: Best Place to Watch The Super Bowl in CT 

The NFL season began in September with 32 teams battling to reach the ultimate game, the Super Bowl. As February 5th approaches, only two teams stand above the rest: The Atlanta Falcons representing the NFC and the New England Patriots representing the AFC. Super Bowl LI in Houston, TX will surely be larger than life as both teams feature high-octane offenses while also fielding respectable defenses. 

Although defense has been crucial (especially for the Patriots who allowed the fewest overall points during the regular season), offense has been the driving force for the Falcons and Patriots. It is rare to see, however, each of these final remaining squads have achieved success primarily due to their offensive prowess. During the regular season, the Falcons and Patriots both finished top three in points scored (Falcons were number one and Patriots were number 3). In addition to their scoring feats, the Patriots and Falcons finished first (+11.9) and second (+8.38), respectively, for scoring margins. Neither team has lost a step moving into the post-season as both teams are averaging over 30+ points per game! 

Reaching the pinnacle has certainly been different for each of these franchises. The Patriots will make their ninth Super Bowl appearance and are looking to win their fifth Super Bowl. This will be coach Bill Belichick’s 7th seventh appearance, setting a record for a head coach. 

For the Falcons, this will only be their second Super Bowl appearance in franchise history. They made it to the final game back in 1998 when they lost to John Elway’s powerhouse offense of the Denver Broncos. Fast forward almost 20 years and “The Dirty Birds” are soaring high with Matt Ryan who is having an MVP-like season. 

Super Bowl Sunday is fast approaching so make your evening even more special by joining us at one of our CT sports bar locations! Remember, no food orders can be made online on Super Bowl Sunday and there is no take out available. We hope you enjoy the game which will surely be a wonderful finale to a great NFL season!

Sliders Grill & Bar: Celebrating 23 Years as CT Sports Bar

The recipe for success isn’t always cut and dry, but hard work, dedication, and a dream to accomplish goals are all great qualities needed to build something special. Fred Marcantonio, the founder of Sliders Grill & Bar, took these principles to heart and began cooking up a plan.  It was simple; Fred loved his family, loved great food, and loved sports. The subsequent dish, Connecticut’s best sports bar as we know it today, Sliders Grill & Bar. 23 years of great customers & employees have contributed to all the following accomplishments:   

Sliders Timeline: CT Sports Bar Locations

  • Southington Sports Bar:  Established 2008 
  • Wallingford Sports Bar:  Established 2010 
  • West Hartford Sports Bar:  Established 2012  

Award Winning Sports Bar In Connecticut  

New England’s rich history of athletics and the overall love for sports that our customers have has allowed us to enjoy decades of success so we owe it to you! What better organization to receive recognition from than Connecticut’s own, ESPN! Ultimately, Sliders Grill & Bar is honored to have been voted by ESPN Magazine as the #5 Best Sports Bar in the Country! 

In addition to our CT sports bar honors, we are grateful to have been awarded prizes for our staple: fresh chicken wings! We have attended and been recognized as a winner at the 2013, 2014 & 2015 National Buffalo Wing Festival! Over the past 23 years, Sliders Grill & Bar of Connecticut has accumulated over 150 title awards for categories such as “Best Wings”, “Best Sports Bar”, “Best Happy Hours” & “Best Nightly Entertainment”! 

Soaring High: Connecticut’s Best Wings 

23 years of wonderful customers and expansion has taught us to always adapt. In effect, we have always done our best to provide our customers with outstanding service and food items they would love. Most recently, we have added new menu items such as cheesy bacon tots and the Texas short rib sandwich. With that said, we never lost sight of our most famous item, our chicken wings! Currently, we are proud to offer over 25 homemade wing sauces that ensure the best wings possible so everyone can enjoy! But hey, don’t take our word for it…here are a few customer survey testimonials that speak to their patronage!  

Jim L. of Plantsville, CT (Customer 23 years!)  

When asked, “What are your favorite staple menus items and why?”  he replied….

The Greatest Athletes to Wear Number 23 

So, with 23 years of being one of Connecticut’s best sports bars, we thought why not pay homage to some of the best athletes to wear the number 23. 

In Major League Baseball, some of the best to don 23 include Ryne Sandberg, Don Mattingly, Kirk Gibson and Boston Red Sox Hall of Famer, Luis Tiant. These guys combined for 759 home runs & 3 regular season MVP awards among many All-Star appearances and a couple World Series victories. 

For the National Football League, some of the best to wear the number 23 include Guy Chamberlain who won four NFL championships as a player-coach in the 1920’s. A few decades later, the Patriots own Ron Hall wore the number 23 proudly in the 1960’s. Other worthy mentions include the Eagles’ Hall of Famer, Troy Vincent and the “NFL 1990s All-Decade Team” member, Mel Gray. 

The National Hockey League has also seen some great number 23’s which include Bob Nystrom, Brian Bellows, and Bob Gainey. This trio combines for 8 Stanley Cup championships with Bob Gainey being a NHL Hall of Famer. 

The NBA is probably most well-known for its 23’s. This list should certainly include Boston Celtics’ own and Hall of Famer, Frank Ramsey. This list should also certainly include the shortest Hall of Famer, Calvin Murphy who stands at just 5 feet 9 inches. Finally, possibly the greatest athletes to ever wear the number 23 are LeBron James and Michael Jordan. These final two names currently combine for 9 NBA Championships, 9 regular season MVP awards, and just under 60,000 points! 

*Honorable Mention – David Beckham 

 

Cheers to Another 23 Years  

We are honored and so happy to be one of CT’s best sports bar for so many great customers and we look forward to many more years with you. In the end, although he did not wear the number 23, we keep Ted Williams’ outlook true and so should you if you strive towards a path of success…“A man has to have goals — for a day, for a lifetime..”

Come in to try our wings, craft beer, or delicious summer sangria’s today!

New Summer Sangrias at Sliders

The bold, sweet flavors of sangria complement the best steaks and grilled meats. You need a cold beverage after a hot day out, and Sliders, out of all of the top restaurants in CT, knows how to deliver. Our sangrias up the wow factor and help you transition into a welcome night out. Sliders provides the best sangrias and two new twists on a 2,000-year-old favorite.

Sangrias have not outlasted the Roman Empire without reason. Sliders’ beloved sangrias get your weekend off on the right foot.

Want a Full-Bodied Refreshing Drink?

We quench Connecticut’s thirst for the best drinks and brews with our seasonal sangria specialties and craft and specialty brews. Sliders’ Raspberry Lemon Sangria brings together two summertime staples, sangria and lemonade, to make for a new must-have beverage for our patrons. Connecticut patrons can expect a bright mix of Stoli Razberi, sauvignon blanc and lemonade topped with fresh red raspberries. For those who love their zinfandel, try our Strawberry Sangria with fresh raspberries and an orange slice fused with the flavors of Skyy strawberry vodka, white zinfandel and orange juice. A drink at Sliders is sure to satisfy.

Sangria Began With the Roman Conquest

This fruity and full-bodied alcoholic beverage has a name that translated as “blood.” The refreshing summer cocktail has its beginnings in the wake of Roman bloodshed on the Iberian Peninsula. Roman conquerors traveled across the land in Spain, and, in addition to spilling blood in battle, they planted the vineyards that would be used to create this longtime favorite. Citizens in the area created fruit punches using local vines fortified with a brandy punch. Red is the most common base for sangria since the Roman discovery that red grape varietals were the best base for their preferred wine. Introduced at the 1964 World’s Fair, sangria arrived in New York City rather recently. Sangria has held its own for thousands of years, but it still invites new versions of the fruity beverage to delight the discerning taste buds of the modern customer.

Enjoy the Best Spanish Traditions at This Connecticut Bar and Restaurant

Loyal customers know that their favorite brews are always on tap as well as surprising new additions that have become fast favorites. Sliders Grill & Bar is your Connecticut bar and restaurant destination for great food, friendly service and a top-notch selection of sangrias and craft brews found nowhere else.

See what the talk is about, and find your new local CT hangout today. Get a great view of the game and attentive, friendly service as you uncover what makes Sliders’ customers return again and again.
