The NFL season is drawing to an end and the Cardinals fought hard but got creamed by the Panthers. But chin up Red Bird Fans, this is no reason to cry because Super Bowl 50 is still shaping up to be a game for the record books.

There are some fantastic venues here in the Valley to meet with friends, have a few drinks, enjoy some truly fine food and catch Super Bowl 50 this coming Sunday, February 7, 2016. Here are some of my favorite social places:

Bottled Blonde Pizzeria and Beer Garden

Established in 2014, Bottled Blonde will be showing Super Bowl 50 on its 42 HDTV’s. Located right in the heart of Old Town they offer up modern Italian menu and wood fired pizzas to hungry sports fans in an atmosphere that might be just a little more comfortable than your own living room. Bottled Blonde’s 9,000 square feet and 22 different craft beers is perfect place for a pie, a pint and The Biggest Game of 2016. Call for more specials for Number 50 and to make reservations.

K O’Donnell’s Sports Bar and Grill

Voted best place to watch the Super Bowl by AZ Central this year, K O’Donnell’s doesn’t have a bad seat in the house. Boasting over 50 televisions, there is even an 80-inch screen where you can see every play from every seat. Worried about missing a call because of a noisy crowd? With sound boxes at every table, you can hear details of that amazing play no matter how loud the crowds cheer.
