Well, the football season is sadly winding down, and there is only one game left – you know, the big one for all of the marbles that really needs no introduction. This year’s matchup pits the Broncos up against the Panthers, and kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. this Sunday, Feb. 7. If you still need plans to watch the game, or plan on going out for it, keep this list below handy!
One of my personal favorite bars, On the Dunes of Commerce is the perfect place to watch the game. There will be giant football squares and giveaways at the end of every quarter. Prizes include tickets to Detroit sporting events, apparel, golf lessons and more! Whoever has the winning square at the end of each quarter wins the prize. Don’t forget about the food, beer and golf simulators!
Ciccarelli’s 22 gets the party rolling today with the pregame kickoff party at the Shelby Township location, featuring a live performance by The Gobies! On Sunday, the bar hosts a viewing party for the big game, including a raffle at halftime. The menu offers appetizers, burgers, pizzas and salads. Limited, prepaid seating is available, so get on it!
This Downtown Plymouth establishment has a great menu, full of bar favorites and even Mexican food. Stella’s will have a party for the game, and offer a few specials as well! The tavern is offering $11 domestic buckets of beer, $5 appetizers and discounted well drinks and wine. You would be wise to call and reserve a spot.
Draught Horse Brewery, located in Lyon Township, hosts a viewing party on Sunday. Televisions can be seen from all over the tap room, and the game will be on surround sound. Draught Horse will offer specials such as buy one beer, get the next one for $0.50. There will also be 25 percent off of your favorite football foods: wings, burgers and pizza!
Livonia’s One Under has 42 HD TVs and 76 beers on tap! In honor of the big game on Sunday, the bar will offer a $15 unlimited food buffet including ribs, fried chicken, wings, chili, veggies and more! The buffet opens one hour before kickoff and continues through the end of the game. Tables are limited and reservations are recommended.
If you are scrambling for Super Sunday plans, I hope this article helps. There are several establishments hosting viewing parties with great deals on food and drinks, and some that are even offering prizes! Take advantage, metro Detroiters.
