Sunday, February 7th

@ Your favorite big screen
>> Super Bowl 50: Carolina Panthers vs. Denver Broncos
In case you haven’t heard there is a pretty big game happening this Sunday. Yep, ’tis the season for supersized commercials, loads of cheese dip, jerseys galore…oh and championship football, too. As Triad City Beat says “The Carolina Panthers have pounded their way to the very top; to miss this game would be downright anti-Carolinian.” Don’t be anti-Carolian. Tune in, cheer loud and don’t forget your hashtag. #KeepPounding
