Super Bowl XLVII is upon us and the Baltimore Ravens are battling the San Francisco 49ers for the Vince Lombardi Trophy in the cool bayou of New Orleans on February 3. There are plenty of bars and restaurants around town showing the game, though some are simply providing take-home specials. Many bars are offering all-you-can-drink deals and festive game-day dishes that cater to the tailgating types. And, of course, there's the must-see commercials and Beyonce performance at half-time for those less interested in the game itself. Note that some places recommend reservations and others aren't showing the game at all — just providing dishes to take home. Here now, Eater runs through the best Super Bowl Specials in Los Angeles.Read More
