Game On For Super Specials 


Sunday’s the day! The annual Patriots Bowl! At least, that’s what it might be considered in recent years. While some may be reluctant to watch the New England Patriots in yet another Super Bowl, at least it’s a good excuse to eat junk food and drink. Rockaway is here for those who want to get into the spirit of the game and celebrate.

The big game will kick off at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 3 and will be broadcast on CBS. This year, the Patriots will take on the Los Angeles Rams. Besides the game, there will be commercials galore, a halftime performance by Maroon 5, and plenty of snack breaks, whether eating at home or out and about.
