Super Bowl Sunday is certainly a day about football. That much is for sure. But it's almost as much about food — usually the greasy, comfort variety — and booze. While many will be doing their American duty and indulging at a house party of some kind, others will flock to a local watering hole for a bite to eat and a few, or perhaps many, adult beverages.
If you fall into the latter category, here are five local spots offering Super Bowl food and drink specials this Sunday.
Over at Social Tap Eatery in downtown Scottsdale, football fans are invited to enjoy $4 Social Tap beers — which include a stout, IPA, and blonde — all day, and fill up with weekend brunch at the brewpub’s indoor-outdoor bar before kickoff. The patio is dog-friendly, and the bar boasts 29 TVs, ensuring you’ll catch all the big hits and deep bombs no matter where you post up.
Pedal Haus Brewery in downtown Tempe will also be tossing out football specials for the entire day, which include half-off chicken wings, $3 Pedal Haus beers, $3 mimosas, $4 Bloody Marys, and $5 margaritas. The outdoor, “community beer garden”-style bar has 40 TVs onsite and 11 rotating beers on tap.
The Lodge Sasquatch Kitchen in Tempe will offer specials. Contact the bar at 480-967-0578 for details.
Both Half Moon Sports Grill (north Phoenix) and Half Moon Windy City Sports Grill (Biltmore) will be offering a slew of pregame specials, such as $6 burgers and $4 Long Islands from 11 a.m. to noon, 60-cent wings and $2.50 domestics from noon to 1 p.m., $6 calamari and $3.50 premiums from 1 to 2 p.m. and $7 fish and chips and $3.50 New Belgium drafts from 2 to 3 p.m. The deals don’t end after kickoff – enjoy $12 mimosa bottles, $5 Three Olives Blood Marys, and $4 Dos XX all day and during the game.
For those looking to ensure that you'll have a place to sit, Half Moon is taking reservations, which require a $25 minimum per person and must be made 24 hours in advance. Private rooms that seat 30 to 50 people are available at both locations as well. Call 602-977-2700 for the Biltmore location, and 602-993-6600 for the Moon Valley location.
Starting at 4 p.m. Sunday, Roaring Fork in Scottsdale is offering a buy one, get one free deal on entrees including "wood-fired favorites" such as the restaurant's signature Big Ass Burger, served with poblano pepper, cheddar, smoked pepper bacon, and fries. Other entrees include grilled fish tacos, boneless buttermilk fried chicken, and bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin.
