Catch the game at XFINITY Live!
Catch the big game at XFINITY Live!

The biggest night in American sports is Super Bowl Sunday. Between the excitement of watching top tier athletes compete for the Vince Lombardi Trophy, impressive halftime performances and the always entertaining commercials, it certainly has something for everyone. So what are you to do if you didn’t get invited to a Super Bowl party this year? Head to a super bar. No matter what part of Philly you live in, we’ve got you covered better than the Seahawks secondary for Feb. 2.

XFINITY Live!
1100 Pattison Ave., South Philly
267-443-6415
www.xfinitylive.com
XFINITY Live! has a 32-foot HDTV for you to watch the game on — yes, that’s feet, not inches. As if that’s not enough, rotating drink specials will be available every hour beginning at 1 p.m. Did we also mention that they have a 32-foot HDTV?

Field House
1150 Filbert St., Center City
215-629-1520
www.fieldhousephilly.com
With 35 televisions, it’s nearly impossible to miss a moment of the action at Field House. From whistle to whistle, $35 gets you all the wings and draft beers you can fit in your belly.

Chickie’s & Pete’s
All Pennsylvania locations
www.chickiesandpetes.com
It wouldn’t be a Super Bowl without stuffing your face with crabfries. But why stop there? Chickie’s & Pete’s is offering an all-you-can-eat special. The $49.99 price tag includes all domestic draft beers, crabfries, wings, roast pork, cheesesteaks, pizza and more. And although this special applies statewide, we’re recommended the original location on Robbins Avenue in Northeast Philly for an authentic, corner bar atmosphere.

Kildare’s Irish Pub
4417 Main Street, Manayunk
215-482-7242
www.kildaresirishpub.com
Between the nine different TVs, 35-cent wings, $3 Yards drafts and flavored Pinnacle vodka drinks, Kildaire’s is a no-brainer if you live in the Manayunk area.

Curran’s Irish Inn
6900 State Road, Tacony
215-331-8628
www.curransirishinntacony.com
If you’ve never had the Cajun wings at Curran’s, you really need to reassess your life. Recipient of the 2013 Philly Hotlist award for best wings, this best-kept secret in the Northeast will undoubtedly keep you coming for years to come.

City Tap House
3925 Walnut Street, University City
215-662-0105
www.citytaphouse.com
There’s no better way to start the day than with the Founders Brewing Company Beer Brunch. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., specialty brunch items inspired by 12 different Founders brews will be available. If you don’t know how delicious Founders can be, we’d recommend making a reservation. If you do know, then you probably already have one.

The Twisted Tail
509 S. 2nd St., Society Hill
215-558-2471
www.thetwistedtail.com
If you’re more into food than sports, look no further than The Bucket Bowl at The Twisted Tail. Starting at $15, enjoy buckets of ribs, whole fried chickens, wings, cheddar burgers and beers.

Paddy Whacks
150 South St., Society Hill
215-464-7544
www.paddywhackspub.com
Equipped with 14 televisions on two floors, Paddy Whacks combines the laidback feel of a casual bar with a surprisingly impressive kitchen. Domestic beer buckets for $10, Bud Light pitchers for $6 and the ever-changing daily food menu are just a few reasons to check this place out.
