IN THE D: Bars Open Early for Lions in London

By: Scott Davis | October 27, 2015

After another uninspired effort this past week, our beloved Lions now have an abysmal record of 1-6. Perhaps a trip “across the pond” – or ocean, rather – to London will help the team turn it around. The Lions will take on the Chiefs this Sunday, Nov. 1, with a special starting time of 9:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. Starting a game that early may put a hindrance on your plans to watch the game at a bar, but lucky for us some bars will open early, and have breakfast options available!

One Under in Livonia hosts its Lions In London Tailgate Breakfast event on Sunday, from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. The event features a breakfast buffet with scrambled eggs, sausage, hash browns, bacon and more! There will be TVs to watch the game and cornhole games going on outside. One Under also has 76 beers on tap!

Guy Hollerin’s is located inside of Ann Arbor’s Holiday Inn. The bar opens early every day, and will be ready for patronage at 7 a.m. on Sunday. The breakfast menu features Cinnamon Supreme French Toast, Granola Pancakes, Greek Omelets, skillets, oatmeal and more. There is also beer, of course.

Honest John’s in Detroit opens at 9 a.m. on Sunday just in time to watch the Lions. The bar offers breakfast options from open to 5 p.m., which includes Chicken and Waffles, Corned Beef and an option to Create Your Own Omelet.

George Murphy’s At the Creek, also located in Livonia, opens its doors at 8 a.m. It will feature a breakfast bar for $8.99, as well as a $7 bloody mary bar, if you’re into that kind of thing. The restaurant’s Lions in London event requires reservations, so make sure to call before it is full!

Griffin Claw Brewing Company in Birmingham also opens early to host its Lions in London brunch event. As does Zeke’s of Ferndale, for its viewing party complete with brunch!

So, if you prefer watching the Honolulu blue and silver at a bar, don’t fret! All of the above options will be open and ready to rock on Sunday. Football, breakfast and beer in the morning; what could be better?
