SPORTS BAR MECCAS
Join hundreds of fans for a rowdy night of football at Game On!, as your Patriots attempt to bring home yet another championship to “Title Town.” “Wayne,” the owner of the famed sports bar, invites you to throw back a cold one (or three) as he will be buying a round for the house. With walls covered in projection HDTV’s, a top-of-the-line sound system, and a superb offering of wings and nachos, it will be hard to find a better place to watch the Pats reach for perfection.
Come join the Harper’s crowd as they root the New England Patriots on to victory. The bar has a 10-foot projection TV, barbecue grub, drink specials, and they’ll be giving away tickets for upcoming shows.
Watch the Patriots pursuit for perfection this Super Bowl Sunday at Jillian’s, the Fenway area megaplex that is sure to be where the action is. With more than 50 plasma television screens, and an 80-by-10 foot video wall, you won’t have a choice but to keep your eye on the game. The complex offers two full-service restaurants, three bars, as well as billiards and bowling for those who just can’t sit still during what is sure to be a nerve-wracking game.
Head to Allston to watch the game for great food, plasmas every which way you look, and an atmosphere that’s sure to pump you up. If none of your friends will man up and volunteer to have the party at their place, The Sports Depot can gladly accommodate you and all your friends. It’s almost as if they have a TV for every person in the place! Get there early if you want to stake out a table, otherwise, it’s standing room only. They are also holding a halftime buffet with typical tailgating food; wings, nachos, chili, but you’ll have to fork over a $10 cover at the door.
Celebrate the big game Southie style with some of Boston’s biggest Pats fans at The Stadium. With more than 30 flat-screens, some are even placed in the bathrooms, there’s not a bad seat in the house. They offer an extensive selection of draft beers and an impressive martini list, and the bar food is top notch.
A Boston institution, and number one rated sports bar by Sports Illustrated, the Fours Restaurant & Sports Bar is sure to live up to its legendary name on Super Bowl Sunday. With a high-rated menu, ample seating, and HD televisions on every wall, this bar is one of the most comfortable spots to watch the game. Enjoy a beer and a plate of barbecue chicken nachos amongst sports legends. This bar has one of the most extensive sports memorabilia collections in Boston, making it perfect for watching the Patriots attempt at sports history.
The Greatest Bar
Throw on your worn-in Pats jersey, sit back, and enjoy a bucket of beer and a plate of wings at The Greatest Bar this Super Bowl Sunday. This bar, located near the TD Banknorth Garden, has become a favorite amongst Boston sports fans, and it’s due largely to their coveted HDTV—the biggest in Boston. The only thing better than watching Tom Brady live on the field, is watching he and his larger-than-life teammates on a 14-foot plasma.
The only thing better than a night of football, beer, and wings, is a night of free football, beer, and wings. The Harp and Boston’s premier sports radio station, WEEI, are throwing a Super Bowl bash fit for a champion team, complete with a free half-time buffet, and a beer and Patriots gear give-away. And, with more than 20 televisions, you won’t miss a minute of the action.
