Well, the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots will be squaring off in the 52nd edition of the NFL’s annual ratings bonanza, and much like Tom Brady and Bill Belichick being at the game, one can always count on Eater dishing on where to watch the game away from home this time of year.

Game day doesn’t have to only be about the game; whether it’s taking the kids to the airplane runways at the Proud Bird while eating Bludso’s ‘cue, lazing about in hip Baja beach digs in Santa Monica, or hitting those gorgeously restored lanes in Highland Park, it’s not too hard to find something for non-football fans to do.

So whether rooting for the Eagles, the Pats, or corporate America’s finest commercials, here’s a list of where to catch the big game this year, presented from west to east.

Ayara Lūk

Ayara Luk’s annual Super Bowl party is charging a pretty hefty cover ($60 presale, $75 at the door), but it will net bottomless beer, wine, chicken wings, Thai sausage, a citrus-lemongrass-inflected Thai-style lobster roll, and other intriguing game day eats. The annual party kicks off at 3 p.m. at the old Chalet Edelweiss space, and pre-sale tickets can be purchased online.

The Proud Bird Food Bazaar & Events Center

The recently renovated Proud Bird mini-food hall and aviation park concept is hosting a Super Bowl viewing party, and $29.95 (or $19.99 for kids ages 5-12) will score all-you-can-eat Bludso’s brisket and ribs in addition to other offerings at the food hall. The game will be played around the bar area but the attached airplane park and all the planes landing on the adjacent runway also doubles as probably one of the cooler experiences for folks (and kids) into airplanes, as well.

Bludso's Bar & Que

Walk-ins will be prohibited on game day, so make sure to nab a reservation for the big game at Bludso’s Bar & Que, which might be simply the best place to catch a game in town, period, for what seems like every year since its inception. Throw back drinks, eat some of the city’s better ‘cue, and make sure to celebrate with one of those mighty fine Rucker pies.

Everyone’s favorite Burbank gastropub listed their Super Bowl party’s hours as 10 a.m. to 1 a.m., which is plenty of time for a pregame, during game, and post-game order of their disco fries.

Brack Shop Tavern

Brack Shop Tavern might have one of the better reservation deals on this list; a table can be booked for $50, which would net each table two pitchers of Goose IPA and 40 chicken wings in addition to holding down a table. A la carte, wings will be 50 cents a pop and pitchers of Goose IPA and Bud will be 15 bucks.

Beelman's

Vegetarian and vegan eaters rejoice. Beelman’s plant-based pub food will be primed for the gastropub’s Super Bowl party, including the restaurant’s Impossible Meat burger. Just remember to keep that vegan diet going strong with a healthy dose of those garlic fries.

Highland Park Bowl

LA’s snazziest bowling alley will be showing the game in all three rooms, including a 15-foot screen that’ll hang over the lanes. Drink and pitcher specials are also on tap, so if one feels like knocking down some pins between commercials and throwing down some brews over pizza, Highland Park Bowl might be the play.

The raucous sports bar in Old Pasadena makes no bones about it: it’s a Pats bar through and through. With TVs outfitted in the booths and just about everywhere throughout the building, it’ll be impossible to miss the inevitable Gronk spike.

The Chicken Koop

Whittier doesn’t get enough love, and even if only for the great roast bird, the Chicken Koop is deserving of respect. Pair that with a mean chicken poutine and some dead serious micheladas and the Chicken Koop might be worth a gander for game day.
