From 3 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, you better be ready for some football! Or at least some clever commercials. We've put together a list of the best places to watch the game besides your co-worker's couch. We made an effort here to really pull in the businesses going the distance this Super Bowl, so while many bars and restaurants will offer a festive atmosphere, it'll be a real party at these spots.
939 SE 2nd St.
Super Bowl is serious business at The Hideway. It's $75 for a guaranteed seat and $50 just to get in the door. That'll get you free food and drinks during the game and the assurance that you're watching the game with some true fans. They've got a couple of boards going, too.
1012 SE Cleveland Ave.
Another serious Super Bowl party. It'll cost you $50 to get in here, too, but your cash means a guaranteed seat, PLUS an all you can eat tri tip dinner with baked potato and salad. Wells and select beers included in that price. Note: the unlimited food and beverages is only good during the game.
2650 NE Division St.
"Tailgating" starts here at 11:30 a.m. Food and drink specials. $2.50 on domestic drafts. $5 touchdown shots. Specials on wings and nachos. Gridiron sampler platter. 15 flatscreen TVs.
700 NW Bond St.
See the game on the big screen. We think this is the only place in town to do this. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. Get there early because this is FREE and will be crowded. No Super Bowl drink or food specials but you will catch their happy hour from 3 to 6 p.m.
125 NW Oregon Ave.
Specially priced Super Bowl menu and discounted domestic drafts and bottles. Summit's menu wasn't set at press time, but in the past the restaurant has featured ribs and crab legs alongside Super Bowl favorites like wings and nachos.
Wall Street Grill
917 NW Wall St.
Some drink specials, including $2.50 Coors Light. Also a FREE nacho bar.
