This Sunday, Feb. 1, many of you may already have plans to hunker down with a big plate of buffalo wings while you settle into your couch and watch the Super Bowl. But do you remember the days when you could watch the big game with buddies cheering your favorite team enthusiastically at a favorite bar? Yeah, that can still happen with kiddos — maybe in a slightly different capacity & maybe only until halftime or bedtime — but it’s still possible. Wondering where you can meet friends AND take the kids to watch the Super Bowl? We’ve got a few ideas for you below.


— Haymaker
Good ol’ fashioned comfort food combined with neighborhood simplicity. It’ll feel like home while you watch the home team win.

Third Base
When Third Base says they have unbeatable daily drink specials, quality food, and every sports package imaginable, they’re not joking around. Just ask any number of dedicated fans that come their to watch football.

Pinthouse Pizza
Kids will love the hand-made pizza, you’ll love the beer selection. A little bit old-school, not a sports bar, but enough televisions to see the big game. And the communal tables make for an easy start to cheering and/or talking smack with your fellow diners.

— Pluckers
If wings are your thing while watching football, Plucker’s is your place to eat ’em. Their South Lamar location has all the flavors you could possibly want, with a professional staff and ample TV’s.

Scholz Garten
Pretzels, sausage, and beer. It doesn’t get any more German than this. Scholz Garten is an awesome place to hang out and watch a little football as well.
