This Sunday, the most-watched television event of the year is coming to plenty of screens near you.
The Super Bowl brings together sports enthusiasts, their significant others, and their friends who really don't care, but would rather eat a few nachos (and catch the commercials) than do the laundry.
This year, the New England Patriots and New York Giants face off in Indianapolis. So where are the best places to head in Phoenix to catch the game? Here are seven options:
They threw quite an event last year, and this year is no different. If you don't mind the drive, Harold's Corral
in Cave Creek is throwing a gigantic Super Bowl bash with an all you can eat buffet. For $13, you can grub on wings, brats, ribs, steak, and standard game snacks. Don't forget killer drink specials and the giant projection screen that will be showing the game.
Up in the North Valley, Connolly's Sports Grill
is hosting a different kind of party. Instead of getting decked out in your favorite Manning or Brady jersey you can show up to this party in pajamas. The bar is having it's first every Pajama Bowl where fans can congregate in their sleep attire and get free wings.
Although it's a Vikings bar, Four Peaks
in Tempe is a great place to catch any game. The Arizona Brewery has HD TV's galore, decent bar food, and home-brewed beer.
The downtown Phoenix is hosting its 10th annual Super Bowl Party with free food. Yes, free food. A complementary food buffet will be up for grabs from 4 p.m. to halftime, and if food isn't what you're looking for, the menu has drink discounts too.
If you're looking to stay in the Tempe area, Baer's Den
is one of the few Patriot bars here in the Valley. You can congregate with all of your fellow New England fans and enjoy their signature brews, babes and food in the quaint place that has a small bar feel.
Zipps can be found all around the Valley, so if you're near one you can stop in and check out some of their drink and food specials they'll be offering during the big game. Premium pitchers will only cost you $8 and for $10 you can get a pizza that will feed your whole crew.
The Crescent Ballroom
will host "Pabst It To Me, I'm Open" party, where, you guessed it, you can get a deal on $2 Pabst. There will be food, music and of course a massive TV to watch the game on in their lounge.
