The football pundits will have their questions and their statistics to argue for the next few days, but there’s a question far less complicated (or maybe it isn't) that the rest of us will be asking leading up to Sunday’s big game--and that’s “Who’s throwing a Super Bowl party?”
For the passionate 12s who couldn’t (or wouldn’t) put up the $800 minimum for nosebleed seats inside University of Phoenix Stadium, there are extended options to be considered for one of our country’s largest social events of the year.
First, there are those who prefer the house party vibe. I’ll save you the trouble--this post ain’t for you.
This post is for those 12s who want a different atmosphere.
There will be beer.
There will be [insert favorite party platter].
And there will be multiple flat screens with enough loud speakers to hear the announcers say something awkward.
So, here’s where you can go around town with some of the extra change you saved from cheaper gas:
Big Spaces: The More the Better
Neumos - View The Game in the the showroom.
Central Library - That would be different.
Neighborhood Comforts: Relax in these neighborhood vibes
Vermillion - They’re offering up “Campfire BBQ” food if you like that sort of thing (of course!). And there’s no cover.
Cooper’s Ale House - The fries, oh those fries.
Leny’s Place (Yelp says) - dive bar feel, HUGE beers.
Honestly though, it won’t be hard to find something. The whole city will seemingly stop to watch this. Celebrate it. This is rare (even though we won it last year, I know).
