BEER SNOB BASH
Pedal Haus Brewery
If a can of Bud just doesn’t cut it for you on game day, upgrade to a draft you can root for. At Pedal Haus Brewery, you can watch the game, hang out in the beer garden and sip a high class brewski brewed in-house. For those who can pull themselves away from the screen, there is corn hole and ping-pong, too. The Super Bowl watch party kicks off at 4:30 p.m. but the deals run all day — half-off wings, $3 Pedal Haus beers,, $3 mimosas, $4 Bloody Marys and $5 margaritas.

DATE-NIGHT DINNER
Salty Sow
Let’s face it: Love makes us do crazy things. If you’ve found yourself in a relationship with someone who just isn’t the die hard sports fan you are, don’t fret. At Salty Sow, you can have your cake and eat it to. Game day will feature screens overhead and a “Dinner on Us” special starting at 4 p.m. Buy one entree, and get a second one of equal or lesser value free. That means you don’t have to miss a minute of the game, and your date doesn’t have to suffer through lame game day grub like frozen mozzarella sticks or nachos with (shudder) chili.

FOODIE FOOTY
Desoto Central Market
For those who care more about the meat than the game, there’s Desoto Central Market. From 3 to 9 p.m., Desoto is serving up a football party with a side of smoky pork. The menu includes a barbecue pulled pork sandwich dinner for $16 or a barbecue rib dinner for $16 or $26, depending on whether you want to tackle a half or a full-rack. It all comes with baked beans, potato salad and a can of beer.

915 N Central Ave., Phoenix
602-680-7747, desotocentralmarket.com

HIPSTER CHIC
Crescent Ballroom
Wait? There’s a big game today? Be among the too-cool at Crescent this Sunday, when the game will be shown on two TV screens and projected on the lounge wall. For fans who work up an appetite after all that cheering, Cocina 10, the in-house kitchen, will be serving up its usual locally sourced, Southwestern fare. Seating is limited, so put that competitive energy to good use and snag one before they are gone.

308 N 2nd Ave., Phoenix
602-716-2222, crescentphx.com

Pub Party
Thirsty Lion Gastropub & Grill
If you’re one of those people who thinks sports are meant to be enjoyed in a dimly-lit pub surrounded by rowdy fans, or you’re British, Thirsty Lion has you covered. Starting at 4:30 p.m., the gastropub is running happy hour deals throughout the whole game, with $1 off craft pints, $4.50 well drinks, wine and margaritas, and menu items as low as $4.95. Just remember, in America, we don’t usually scream, “GOOOOOOAAAAALLL” for a touch down.
