The Super Bowl is the biggest pizza day of the year, and pizza in Delaware almost always means Grotto’s. Stop in and enjoy a $3.50 tall Coors Light. For every Coors product purchased, you'll be entered into a raffle for big-ticket items, such as a “refresherator” (a huge beer cooler) and a PlayStation 4. (You must be present to win the drawing.)
