Entertaining is stressful – especially on game day. Your quaint-and-cozy living room turns into a stadium of screaming, zealous, beer-guzzlers; the chip bowl needs to be refilled every five minutes; and the kid next door just threw down a prized family heirloom like a football. Wait… is that a stain on your couch? Maybe it’s buffalo wing sauce. Maybe it’s face paint. Maybe it’s past your bedtime because it’s a Sunday, and guess what? You have to go to work tomorrow.
This Super Bowl, the only thing you need to worry about is the score. So, here’s a list of great local places to watch the game this weekend. We promise, they’re total touchdowns.
