Superbowl Sunday: the day even non sports fans enjoy a good old fashioned game of football. It’s the day champions are made. And while Chicagoans don’t have a horse in the race this year, there’s still a lot of fun to be had in Chi-Town on Sunday.
Whether your priority is cheering on either the Giants or the Patriots, eating munchies, binging on beer or all of the above, there’s a party for you in Chicago this weekend. Not to mention some great deals too.
So regardless if you’re rooting for the Giants or the Patriots, here’s some of our recommendations for the best Superbowl parties in Chicago:
Timothy O’Toole’s: This slosh fest in Streeterville is sure to be one of the best places to get your buzz on during the game. It’s filled with televisions, 60 to be exact, so every seat in the house has the perfect football viewing angle. The specials include $10 Miller Lite pitchers and $5 Absolut cocktails. And don’t forget to put in an order of wings. Timothy O’Toole’s has some of the best wings in town. Plus, at the end of the game they’ll be raffling off a HD flatsceen TV.
The Venue at Horseshoe Casino: Being one of Chicagoland’s largest sports bars, the Horseshoe naturally features one of Chicago’s largest TV’s, a huge 60 foot screen! There’s also some great deals going on here. We recommend the $15 food package, which gives you guaranteed seating on the Venue Floor and all-you-can-eat food including chicken wings, beef sandwiches, hot dogs, wraps and more.
Butch McGuire’s: Can you say 40 cent wings? Well Butch McGuire’s is saying it on Superbowl Sunday. Enjoy very cheap wings, $8 pitchers of Miller Lite, all day-long brunch and specials on Bloody Mary’s and Mimosas. We suggest getting here early though, as this place is expected to fill up fast.
