Giants fans in Astoria headed to their local bars to watch and root for their team in Super Bowl 46.

Astoria, known for its booming nightlife, did not disappoint for the Super Bowl. Locals filled area bars hoping for a cold drink and a Giants victory.

Dan Drazka cozied up to the bar at Sissy McGinty’s, nursing a frosted Coors Light and dressed in a crisp Victor Cruz jersey—support for his favorite player.

“I hope [Victor Cruz] catches a lot of passes so I can learn to dance like him,” said Drazka.

Drazka’s girlfriend Veronica came out to watch the game, bringing along her parents.

Margaret Smith from Astoria was also watching the game at Sissy McGinty’s, along with several of her friends.

“I hope they kick Patriot ass,” said Smith.

Down the street at Tu Casa, Giants fans crammed themselves around the bar in the front room to catch the game.  Jonathan Franco, a Giants fan who came to Tu Casa to support his team, was hopeful for a Giants win.

“The anticipation and the duration, it’s definitely exciting,” said Franco.
