Wondering which bars in our fair city are showing the big game? Here are a few suggestions for where to watch (and other options to entertain you if you aren’t the biggest football fan).Free pool while you watch the game at Shooters Cedar Park. Watch on a 25-foot HD screen at The North Door. Cheer on your team on a massive projection screen (sun-allowing) at the Whip In. If you want to watch the game outdoors, but not really outdoors, the W Hotel Austin has a screened porch where you can sit and sip (with complimentary sub sandwiches and all-night happy hour). Check out a massive buffet, free beverage samples and swag from some of your favorite boozy brands at Punch Bowl Social. Tickets are $35 per person ($15 for those 15 and under). Enjoy drink and wing specials and buy your football squares at Black Sheep Lodge. Join a raffle to win an authentic NFL football signed by Cowboys legend Emmett Smith at Toss Pizzeria. Imbibe Whisler’s signature Bloody Mary, a keg of beer and complimentary Super Bowl food (or try the specials at Thai Kun). Enjoy all day happy hour and Sangria jugs at Irene’s. If Sixth Street’s your thing, try Super Bowl parties with drink specials at Thirsty Nickel or free food at The Four Horsemen. Eat some freshly grilled hot dogs and burgers at Lucille Patio Lounge. Get away from downtown and take in in some Tex-Mex and specials on beer and margaritas at Serranos Southpark Meadows. Watch the game on the projector and sit by the fire at Friends & Neighbors. Corner Bar is celebrating its five-year anniversary this week, so if you spend $10 at the bar, you get a free plate of barbecue. They’ll also give out Buffalo Wild Wings for free at halftime. $1 off all beer during the big game at 4th Tap Brewing Co-Op. Have an all-American day and enjoy burgers, hot dogs, chips, shots and beer at The Rattle Inn‘s rooftop deck. Watch the game (or, you know, do karaoke instead) at Ego’s. Test out more than 200 international beers (but maybe don’t try them all on Sunday) at Flying Saucer. The showdown on the field may be between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons, but the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar is broadcasting another battle: Freddy vs. Jason. Take in some comedy at Dirty Dog Bar with comedian Steve Hofstetter (and watch the game afterward, if you’re so inclined). Grab a gift bag and partake in an all-you-can-eat buffet at Whitestone Brewery in Cedar Park. Celebrate the SOUPer Bowl (get it) at Craftsman – it’s just like it sounds. Lots of soup. And stew. And gumbo. And chili. Hungry yet? Have bowls of chili (and buckets of champagne, both of the mimosa variety and the Miller High Life variety) at The Brixton. Get a bunch of delicious goodies at Weather Up Austin for just $5. Throwing your own party? Order Super Bowl food specials from Mongers, Walton’s Fancy & Staple, Freedmen’s or Tacodeli.
