Thanksgiving 2017 NFL at Black Dog Ballroom NWS

Thanksgiving is an American holiday and as such I don't have a clue what it's all about. What I do know though is that Black Dog Ballroom NWS are showing a massive day of NFL games for anyone who loves a bit of Uncle Sam action.

Starting from 4.30pm on Thursday 23rd November there will be complimentary American snacks, drinks offers and giveaways, all while you watch a bunch of bloody big buggers run at each other and smash each other’s heads in while chasing some pig skin.

Feel free to get dressed up like Apollo Creed in Rocky 4, wear a fanny pack, drive a pick-up truck and put on about 9 stone to get fully invested in the USA vibes. Here’s the games:

  • 17.30 – Minnesota Vikings vs Detroit Lions
  • 21.30 – Los Angeles Chargers vs Dallas Cowboys
  • 01.30 – New York Giants vs Washington Redskins


If this means anything to you then you’re in for a belting night of non-stop NFL action. Hopefully there will be a few bloopers too to keep the non-NFL fans entertained. Football in the groin springs to mind.
