The Bonnie

29-12 23rd Ave

The Bonnie will be showing the game on their projector screen in the Oak Room. Chef Nick Testa will be adding a nachos special for the night: cheddar & Monterey Jack cheese, refried beans, pickled jalapeños and onions, chipotle crema, salsa verde and guacamole, with optional add-on of fried chicken or pork belly. They just launched a permanent rotational draft line of SingleCut beers, so there’s always a hyperlocal option, in addition to lots of other great choices!

19-33 37th St.

For every Bud ad the group sees during the game (oh yeah, that means the “seltzer” too), they’ll put up a point on the big board–and when that clock hits 00:00, guests get that percentage off their total beer bill. They’ll have buckets of cans, ready to go, and food by Old Thyme BBQ. Get ready folks, it’s about to kick off!

This party is for Royal Order of Rulpsen Loyalty Card Members only, but no worries, you can always sign-up for free the day of. No ticket required for entry!

Sweet Afton

30-09 34th St.

Sweet Afton will be showing the game on the big screen with the sound OFF, so it’s the ideal spot for folks who are mildly interested in football but majorly interested in buffalo wings or a Philly steak patty melt. Also, worth popping by to check out the brand new cocktail (which is also appropriately named for a Sunday night): the School Night! It’s Milagro Blanco tequila, Calvados, cardamom, yuzu, citrus bitters and soda.

If you’re looking for the usual Sunday plan…

Katch Astoria

31-19 Newtown Ave

Katch appears to be doing its same-old for Superbowl, but it’s same-old is still perfect for the biggest game of the year! With 50 beer taps and 70 HD TVs, you’ll be all set. Make reservations at (718) 777-2230.

If you want to get rowdy…
