The NFL season concludes Sunday with Super Bowl LIV, and plenty of bars around D.C. are getting into the tailgating spirit. Looking to claim their second title in franchise history, the Kansas City Chiefs will pit their indomitable offense against the San Francisco 49ers and their relentless defense.

From an unlimited nacho bar at The Commentary, bottomless hot beer cheese at Theismann’s, an epic viewing bash at MGM National Harbor, kill-the-keg competition at the Crown & Crow, and a take-home option at Momofuku, there’s no shortage of options to take in football’s grand finale.
