Where to Watch Super Bowl XLVI
Whether you’re a die-hard Patriots fan, a casual football watcher, or just a baseball enthusiast trying to kill time until opening day, we’ve got you covered. We’ve scoured events for Super Bowl Sunday to bring you the best spots in the Boston area to catch the Patriots/Giants rematch this Sunday. — Krista Firkins
Kings Back Bay
“The Ultimate Super Bowl” might be a bad pun used to describe a situation where you get to bowl while watching the Super Bowl on four huge projectors above the bowling lanes — but at King’s on Sunday, that’s exactly what you’ll get. That, plus billiards, Skee ball, shuffleboard, and the game playing on not just those four screens, but a total of 30 different screens, sound on, from 5 p.m. to victory. Reservations are suggested — the center is expected to fill up, and fast. 50 Dalton St., Boston, 617-266-2695, kingsbackbay.com.
Never one to back down from an excuse for a lively party, Jillian’s Lucky Strikes and Tequila Rain are throwing a double-whammy on Super Bowl Sunday. On the third floor (Lucky Strikes), ‘The Big Game’ tailgating party will kick off at 2 p.m. with a pre-game party hosted by Kiss108, with prizes, bowling (pre-book the lanes, though), score-prediction contests, and high-definition TVs showing the game. If you get hungry, there will also be a $10 all-you-can-eat tailgate buffet downstairs at Tequila Rain (with even more TVs) — neatly eliminating the worry that anyone will miss a moment of the action. 145 Ipswich St., Boston, 617-437-0300, jilliansboston.com.
Super Bowl Party Experience at CBS Scene Restaurant and Bar
This dining and entertainment complex, situated right next to Gillette Stadium, brings you as close to the Patriots as you can get without traveling to Indy for the game. Equipped with more than 143 high-definition displays, CBS Scene brings guests the opportunity to watch the Bowl from the home turf and offers over 20 beers on tap. 200 Patriot Place, Foxborough, 508-203-2200, cbsscene.com.
Super Bowl Sunday at Lansdowne Pub
Located in the heart of one of Boston’s most popular sports destinations, this Irish pub will broadcast the game on their giant HD projection screen, just steps from Fenway Park. If that’s not enough to get you there, the pub also features a free wings buffet at halftime. 9 Lansdowne St., Boston, 617-247-1222, lansdownepubboston.com.
Super Bowl at the Pour House
The Pour House, self-described as the “#1 Bar in Boston,” will offer their Sunday specials plus more giveaways. In addition to boasting a menu of three different dipper specials aptly named after NFL titles, they have a Sunday drink special where you can snag a 22oz mug for $4.75. Specials start at 4 p.m. 907 Boylston St., Boston, 617-236-1767, pourhouseboston.com.
Seaport Super Bowl Sunday at Jerry Remy’s Seaport
If you’re feeling particularly charitable this Super Bowl, the Seaport location of the popular Boston sports bar will be taking VIP reservations, and half of the proceeds will benefit the South Boston Collaborative center. Each VIP reservation, which are taken in parties of four, will receive a guaranteed table, one appetizer per person, and a Remy’s Seaport Super Bowl T-shirt. VIP reservation seating starts at 4 p.m. $50 per person, 250 Northern Ave., Boston, 617-737-7647, jerryremysseaport.com.
Super Bowl Sunday at Game On
Not only does this Fenway spot feature a whopping 90 HD-TVs, but they’re offering platter specials on Sunday for groups of up to 10 people. Party-goers will also have a chance to win Green Monster seats at Fenway during halftime. 82 Lansdowne St., Boston, 617-351-7001, gameonboston.com.
Super Bowl … At Home
For those who feel particularly passionate about the Pats, there’s only one way to ensure there’s no stray Giants fan around during the game, and that’s by watching it at home. And if you choose to stay couch-side this Sunday, then Andiamo wants to help keep you fed with a special Patriots-themed “Couch Potato Tailgate” that will be available for delivery throughout the game. Options run the gamut from an appetizer plate (think: chicken wings) up to a 20-person platter that includes lobster. Doesn’t get easier than that, but you probably will want to order a couple days early. 617-242-7300 or andiamosboston.com.
