View as Map

It's time to start preparing for the biggest (American) sporting event of the year. Super Bowl 50 is happening on Sunday, February 7, with the Denver Broncos going against the Carolina Panthers in the Bay Area.

All the region's sports bars are having some sort of party to bring in the crowds, but a few places are going the extra yard to make sure Super Bowl fans and football hobbyists really enjoy this year's game. From barbecue competitions to over-the-top packages with a private bartender, there's something for everyone to accommodate practically any budget — including those who have $7,000 to drop on a Super Bowl party.
