Prubechu is bringing the heat to your Super Bowl spread this year.
| Patricia Chang

There’s still a chance the Niners could compete for the glory in Super Bowl VVI, or 56 for non-Greeks. Harkening back to the glory days of Bill Walsh and Joe Montana, the 49ers took a playoff victory from the Cowboys and beat the 0.4 percent chance the NFL gave them this year to reach the Super Bowl. For the rest of us back in the Bay, the odds are the same as ever: can I find something fun to do during the big game?

Whether you’re an at-home tryhard or merely a party-going casual, the Super Bowl is basically an unrecognized national holiday. And any proper holiday demands proper feasting. Thankfully, San Francisco has you covered for kickoff. Though the days of playing at Kezar Stadium and Candlestick Park are long gone, the tradition of getting sloppy drunk and shouting for the red and gold marches on. Don’t forget to peep our list of 22 sports bars in the city from which to catch the game.

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; it may pose a risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial COVID transmission.

Fieldwork Brewing Company

Copy Link

Dotted around the Bay from Sacramento to Monterey, four of the seven Fieldwork Brewing locations will all be streaming the game (Berkeley, San Ramon, Corte Madera, and Sacramento). Since 2014, the Berkeley-born business has spread like a much more positive wildfire throughout NorCal. Home delivery is an option for anyone hosting parties at home. Their “Dreaming in Neon” beer, born right before the pandemic hit in 2020, has been a big hit.

alaMar Kitchen & Bar

Copy Link

This seafood restaurant, launched by Top Chef Season 18 contestant Nelson German, has $1 oysters. It’s a solid option for craft cocktails and outdoor dining, beyond this outrageous deal from an outrageously talented cook. Make this Oakland restaurant your destination if you have kids or a penchant for oxtail nachos.

The Boardroom

Copy Link

Though this bar features a plethora of surfboards, it’s a classic North Beach corner to catch all kinds of sports. We’ve hyped this spot in the past, and for good reason. Whether it’s their Tequila Trivia Tuesdays or for the day in question, it’s tough to beat this corner hang.

Greens Sports Bar

Copy Link

A Polk Street institution, alongside notable mention McTeague’s, Greens is a mainstay amongst caves to catch the game. Draft beer, cheap prices, and the unbeatable North Beach ambiance make for a surefire good time for game day.

Bartlett Hall

If you find yourself in Union Square for the big day, don’t hesitate to drop in to this classy gastropub as they’ll be playing on a big screen projector. Football-specific specials include a $6 sausage, $8 nachos, and $20 pitchers of beer. You can take home a collection of snacks, instead, for $35. 

Hockey Haven

Copy Link

On Balboa Avenue, in a rare and important spate of businesses amongst rows of houses, lies Hockey Haven, home to one of San Francisco’s least appreciated patios for more than 20 years. A dedicated host of Niners fans turn out at this haunt, too, so expect loud camaraderie and cheap drinks. 

Underdogs Tres

Copy Link

This set of Sunset shops popped up on the list last year, as it does this year, for good reason. Though the original Underdog Taco on Irving has closed, Underdogs Tres on 9th Avenue and its Outer Sunset companion are family-friendly cantinas to grab a taco Nick’s Style – deep fried – with a high-end tequila.

Prubechu

Copy Link

The Superbowl Munchies Chesa box from Prubechu looks like a powder keg of excellence. For $85, fans of the Mission District destination for Chamorro food will get a cornucopia: red rice, barbecue pork ribs, chicken kelaguen tacos, chicken wings, house chips with wasabi ranch dip and fina’denne. Place orders by noon on February 12 for a Sunday pickup.

Celia's by the Beach

Copy Link

It’s not just San Franciscans who want to eat Mexican food and watch football. Those in the Sunset show Celia’s love, but so do Daly City dwellers. Come for the raucous energy, full bar, and vegan menu. There are plenty of familiar burrito and nacho options, but it’s a rare Bay Area Mexican restaurant to find Impossible versions of both.

7 Mile House Sports Bar & Grill

Copy Link

For those with a dog in tow, or who need years of endorsement from now-defunct alt magazine SF Weekly to pick their Super Bowl haunt, 7 Mile House is the spot. The Niners love is palpable. Beer, adobo, and tacos abound. It’s the Bay’s last “mile house,” built around 1858, and still puts up numbers today as a fan favorite.
