Game Day CollageBuckeyes (and a few Ducks!) across Hancock County are preparing for the College Football Playoff Championship game on January 12.  Here is everything you need to celebrate game day!

Where to Watch

There are plenty of places in Hancock County to watch the Bucks and Ducks duel it out during the championship game.  You can watch the game at one of your tried and true spots, like Ralphie’s Sports Eatery and Fricker’s, or stop by one of the local sports hubs, like The Landing Pad and Logan’s Irish Pub.  Alexandria’s is even having a National Championship Game Day Party with specials on drinks and their famous duck fat fries and wings.

What to Wear

There is no better way to show your team allegiance than to wear it!  If you are looking for a new t-shirt to root on your team, visit Dick’s Sporting Goods or Dunham’s Sports for a huge selection.  Trends On Main is the place to grab some scarlet and gray (or possibly, green and yellow!) gear.  Many of their accessories and apparel can be monogrammed while you wait, so pick out a great scarf or shirt and have it personalized!  House of Awards & Shoes has Ohio State hats, purses, wallets and much, much more.  RooBarb Studios, open Thursday-Saturday, has plenty of hand-stamped Ohio jewelry that will set you apart from other fans.  You can customize it with the Buckeye Battle Cry engraved or keep it simple to wear year-round.

What to Eat (and Drink!)

Whether you need a caterer or just some sweet treats for game day, we have you covered.  Hosting a party is a huge undertaking, especially on a weeknight!  Skip the stress of cooking yourself and order your food instead.  City Barbeque is delicious and they even deliver.  Order a few pounds of pulled pork and a vat of fries and pick up some scarlet and gray plates…you’re set!  Or, call Beer Barrel Pizza & Grill for a more traditional take.  Their pizza and chicken chunks are delicious and are they have a special large portion menu to feed the whole crowd.  Better yet, they have a drive through, so pick up will be a breeze.  If you really want to take it easy, let Middleman Delivery Service handle the pickup for you!  Middleman delivery costs begin at just $5 and will deliver to most of Findlay.  Call them with your request and have it delivered to your doorstep..doesn’t get much easier than that!  If you are heading to a friend’s house for a game day party and looking for something to really impress your friends, a couple pounds of buckeyes from Dietsch’s will definitely do the trick.  Trans Am Meatballs & Records are selling Ohio State Buckeye cookies, these shortbread cookies are with a layer of peanut butter and then dipped in chocolate look amazing.  Make sure you call ahead to place a large order!  Picking up a growler (or three) of Ohio’s finest beer will definitely blow your friends away.  Stop by Findlay Brewing Company on Friday evenings or stop by Great Scot on Broad Avenue and see what they have on tap and available.  Great Scot has a huge wine and beer from across the state, it is the perfect way to have state pride and root on the Buckeyes.

No matter where you are, what you are wearing or what you are eating we hope you enjoy the first annual CFP Championship Game!  O-H!
