The Downtown Café in Glen Cove surged with football fans in anticipation of Super Bowl 52. The New England Patriots took on the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, which resulted in Eagles’ first-ever Super Bowl victory.
There was plenty to enjoy at the Downtown including the beer and a variety of bar food, while watching the game. Devoted Giants fans Bridget Betancourt and Drew Livetti said they weren’t pulling for either team to win, but were more partial to Philly since their future son-in-law is an Eagles’ fan.
The Pats trailed the Eagles for most of the game before coming up on their tail feathers towards the end of the fourth quarter. But Philly kept an impressive defensive line resulting in a turnover in the second half, which cost New England what would have been its sixth Super Bowl win.
