This Sunday, my big game plan is to work till kickoff, then run home with my ear to the radio as fast as I can. The 49ers didn't make it to Super Bowl XLVI, so I don't really mind who wins, but I'm sure nobody wants to miss the biggest TV event of the year! Unless you'd rather watch the other big game, which is Puppy Bowl VIII ...
If you're gonna be here in Laguna Beach and you're looking for a fun place to watch the game, here are a few ideas from the Patch.com team. If you know any others, feel free to shout it out to everyone in the Comments section below ...
The Deck is a new player on the Super Bowl party scene, having only opened last summer. They're going for a theme approach, serving up New England-style lobster (or is it "lobstah?") rolls and New York-style hot dogs along with Kobe beef and braised pork sliders, chef's special recipe hot wings, and more.
There's gonna be an afternoon of cheap beer and gourmet food at the Tavern this Sunday. Raffle prizes will be awarded, with the grand prize of a night for two at the . The game will be shown on seven flatscreen TVs—their biggest is 50 inches, and they have several 42-inchers as well. Manager Dan will be there, rooting "against the Patriots."
There'll be a big fat party at the House of Big Fish this Sunday. Doors open at 10:30 a.m., drinks will be cheap, and food will be cheaper—you can eat and drink your fill on $20 or less while watching the game on seven 55-inch HD TVs. Over 70 different beers will be provided to get you good and excited for the raffle prizes of food gift certificates and hotel stays at and others!
For a more intimate setting, the Marine Room will be hosting a little potluck. Aggie Dougherty and the gang will be turning off the music during the game and asking all comers to bring a covered dish. The big event will be on seven huge TVs, and Aggie will be there rooting for the Giants.
Big prizes and great food are up for grabs at the White House this year. Seven HD TVs will be tuned to the game, the biggest one being a 42-inch projection screen. There will be an all-day buffet and a raffle to win a 42-inch flatscreen. Entry into the raffle and tickets to the all-you-can-eat buffet are going to be $30 this year (seafood and prime rib were on the menu at last year's bash, so this year's should be just as tasty). Manager Tony Cox will be there, rooting for the Patriots.
