Super Bowl XLVII (or number 47 for the non-Roman-numeral-speaking) is coming up this Sunday. I always look forward to the funny commercials, the thrill of the game, the amazing food, and of course, the great company. (Editor's note: Don't forget the Puppy Bowl, this year with hedgehog cheerleaders!) It’s always fun to watch the game with friends, family, and all sorts of people, so having the right atmosphere is key to enjoying a good game of football.
If you’ll be in Laguna Beach and need a place to watch one of the biggest games of the year, these five places offer great deals and food when the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens duke it out in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Kickoff is 3:30 p.m. Pacific time, with coverage from KCBS-TV.
The Deck will be showing the game with their "Surf & Turf" package for the cabanas on Sunday. It's only $60 dollars per person and includes a 52-inch flat screen television, flag football equipment, a private cabana deck, and the catered “Surf & Turf” menu, with sliders or breakfast burritos, wings, BBQ drums, fries, peel and eat shrimp, wraps or mahi tacos, a bucket of 12 beers and a signature cocktail pitcher.
Hennessey’s Tavern will be having several specials. There will be double Jack Daniel’s for $10, $3 Kamikazes, $10 appetizer sampler plates, and more. Fans can catch the game on Hennessey’s 120-inch hi-def TV, and afterwards, take home a 23-ounce souvenir football glass.
Catch the game at the House of Big Fish on their many, many, many TVs. They'll offer their regular menu, including a wide variety of fish dishes, assorted seafood, burgers, salads, fries, chips, and over 70 brands of ice cold beer (of course).
If you want to fill up on food Sunday, catch the game at this Laguna Beach institution. A great place with a wide selection of alcohol, the Marine Room offers good drinks, company, food, and of course, football. They’ll be having a Super Bowl party with a complimentary buffet from 3-6 p.m. and munchies supplied by K'ya Bistro. Also, according to their Facebook page, they're rooting for the Niners ...
Spend the day at the White House with great food served all day—a brunch followed by prime rib. There will also be a 50-inch flat screen TV raffled off, with a $30 entry fee. Come watch the game on the big screen projector and five HD TVs, all giving you a view of the action.
