What you need to know:
Super Bowl XLVII (#47) is taking place on Sunday February 3rd, 2013 in New Orleans. Kick-off is 6:30pm and the competing team are the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens. Beyonce is headlining the halftime show. (I had to google this all.)
Who are you rooting for? And more importantly where will you be funneling beers and enjoying nachos and wings? A local dive? A house party?
Below are some of the best places to watch the annual man and cheese fest:
For those of you who hate sports, look out for tomorrow’s post: Best Bars To NOT Watch The Super Bowl In Greenpoint.
Best Bars To Watch The Superbowl In Greenpoint
• The Warsaw (261 Driggs Ave)
You heard correctly, Roberta’s is throwing a superbowl party at The Warsaw and you can rent private rooms and skyboxes! Not to mention nachos and pierogis and wings and towers of beer. This will be more epic than Beyonce’s halftime show performance.
• Brouwerij Lane (78 Greenpoint Ave)
Erik is bringing his TV from home. Classy.
• The Palace (206 Nassau Ave)
If you’ve never been to this Greenpoint institution, now is your chance in all its local sports bar glory.
• Black Rabbit (91 Greenpoint Ave)
Because it’s classy on the big screen. Nerd Bowl (begins 6pm) will have “$5 Black Rabbit Lager, Board Games, Places To Sit & $5 Frito Pie”
• Turkey’s Nest Tavern (94 Bedford Ave)
Technically not in Greenpoint, but one of the best sport’s bars in Brooklyn. Because they serve beer out of styrofoam cups and you can see a TV from every angle, even if you’re upside down.
• Boulevard Tavern (579 Meeker Ave)
I have one thing to say: tater tots.
• Bar Matchless (557 Manhattan Ave)
Nice TVs, good beer, great bartenders, extensive bar menu, including the panelle special! (that’s a fried chick pea fritter sandwich with red sauce.) Plus $0.50 wings & $3 PBRs all night.
• Lulu’s (113 Franklin St)
Free pizza and watch the big screen from the second level.
• Greenpoint Heights (278 Nassau)
If you live all the way on this side of McGuinness, not sure why you would need to watch the Super Bowl anywhere else.
Red Star Bar (37 Greenpoint)
Who can forget Red Star? Not Mike (below). Plus they have the best wings in town!
