Whether you’re looking for a place to stake out your spot or you’d rather order in, we’ve got the best places to watch the Super Bowl (and order take out). By Carly Petrone.
Park it at Astoria’s Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden for the day and enjoy $10 pitchers, $5 Bushmill shots, and appetizer specials all day long beginning at 4 p.m. Start tailgating and gear up for the big game at the oldest beer hall in New York. Bring your friends because there’s no cover and plenty of brews (and sauerkraut) to go around.
Professor Thom’s is ready to welcome Patriots fans to their tailgate party starting at 12 p.m. Yes, it’s a good six and half hours before kickoff, but they’re offering giveaways, specials, and some of the best Boston beers on tap. It won’t be hard to watch the game thanks to 17LCD televisions and a high-definition projector surrounding the 41-foot bar. Bottoms up!
Who can say no to Guac-to-Go Party Packs? Rosa Mexicana is offering up this sweet deal but you must order by 5 p.m. on January 30th.
