The Eagles are heading across the pond this weekend to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in their British debut at London's Wembley Stadium. Not all of us are as lucky as the Eagles fan who ran into a subway pole after the team's victory against the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC championship game earlier this year and wound up scoring tickets, so here are some bars and restaurants that will be showing the game, which starts at 9:30 a.m., with food and drink specials to boot. (If you'd rather watch in your jammies from the comfort of your own home, the game airs on 6ABC.)
The Old City staple is opening early for the game at 9 a.m. You can snag Shepherd's Pie egg rolls filled with beef, mashed potatoes, peas, and corn with brown gravy for dipping for $8, Scotch eggs for $8, fish and chips served with caper tartar sauce and malt vinegar for $10, and a full English breakfast with bacon, sausage, baked beans, and two fried eggs for $10. Wash it all down with $6 manmosas (orange juice and beer), $10 Miller Lite buckets and $3 domestic drafts.
