This Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles go head-to-head with the New England Patriots for Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis. While the likes of Tom Brady and Fletcher Cox lay their blood, sweat, and tears on the field, we suggest you stick to the beer-snacks-and-television-in-the-living-room thing. Or, better yet, take your viewing out into the world, where the groans and cheers will amplify in glorious unison. Herewith, a few suggestions as to where to watch, whether you’re in L.A., Miami, or NYC.
LOS ANGELES: Hyperion Public
Hyperion Public will be hosting what they’re calling an all-day “Super Bowl Festivus” at both of their locations. Make your game bets over brunch, then stay all day until you have to get dragged out, either jubilant or weeping. Hey, not everyone can be a winner. Expect solid American comfort food and a happy hour that runs from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
2538 Hyperion Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027
LOS ANGELES: The Church Key
If you want to take the guesswork–or, really, the work work–out of the day, head to The Church Key, where, for $60 per person, you can dig into an all-you-can-eat buffet of BBQ pulled pork, hot wings, nachos, and all those goodies you’ll be regretting the next day. Drinks are available, but will cost you extra. It’s a small price to pay for not having to clean up the party, we think.
8730 W Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069
NEW YORK CITY: Warren 77
Warren 77 is swell place for a drink any day of the week, but for big days like this, well, it shines. The dimly lit Tribeca haunt will be playing the game on all nine of its TVs. Dig into dollar wings and drink cocktails crafted especially for the occasion. Might we suggest a Tom (Brady) Collins?
77 Warren St, New York, NY 10007
NEW YORK CITY: Harold’s Meat + Three
Because no one is too old for a kegger–at least on Super Bowl Sunday. Harold’s Meat + Three is hosting a doozy of a day this Super Bowl LII. For $49 per person, you can eat, drink, and play flip cup to your heart’s content. This is not, after all, a day to take one’s self too seriously.
2 Renwick St, New York, NY 10013
MIAMI: Kiki on the River
If you’re looking for something a little more, er, elegant than your typical multi-screen, wings-for-all event, head to Kiki on the River for the big game. In the spirit of the day, they’ll be serving hometown classics from Philly and New England, from cheesesteaks to lobster rolls.
450 NW North River Dr, Miami, FL 33128
MIAMI: Nautilus Cabana Club
At Nautilus, a SIXTY Hotel, the Nautilus Cabana Club will be hosting some fun from 5 p.m. to close. Watch the game on the big screen and tailgate the day away. There will be a live DJ, buckets of beer, and a whole lot more. For more details, call the hotel at 305.503.5700.
1825 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139
MIAMI: Ricky’s South Beach
For those who can’t–understandably–imagine the game without the wings, Ricky’s South Beach is your spot. (They’ll be doing a complimentary “wing bar.”) Wash that spice down with anything from the bar, which will be 50% off from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. All around, a great Super Bowl deal.
1222 16th St, Miami Beach, FL 33139
