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.
