This weekend is the High Holy Days for football fans: Yes, Super Bowl Sunday is upon us, and whichever team you cheer (we, in our New York offices, are in no way biased towards our own Giants), there are plenty of places throughout New York City to watch the game with like-minded people. Here is a list from GONYC and NYCGo of places throughout the Boroughs that will be screening the big game on Sunday:
NYRR Gridiron Classic & Longest Football Toss
Before you plant yourself on the couch to watch the Super Bowl, get some exercise at this annual New York race and football toss competition. During the race, you can vote with your feet for the team you think will win the Super Bowl later in the day. If your team wins, you’ll be entered in a raffle for special prizes.
Three twelve-foot screens ensure you'll have a good view of the game if you pick this Upper East Side bar to drink at while you watch the Super Bowl.
This Gramercy bar offers the ability to watch games like you do at a traditional sports bar, with a touch of class. They have two plasma screens and a projection tv that ensure you'll be able to enjoy the game without all the frat boys and lockeroom feel of many sports bars.
Ship of Fools
With 36 TVs, including eight large screens, this Upper East Side sports bar offers extensive viewing options from the Super Bowl to any other sporting events you may want to watch.
This Times Square bar has so many TVs, there are even some in the bathroom.
