Here are five of the best places to catch this weekend's Big Game.
5. Funky Buddha
1201 NE 38th St., Oakland Park. Call 954-440-0046.
Maybe you haven't heard, but Funky Buddha isn't just for beer anymore. That's so 2015. Now, in addition to an amazing selection of beers, you can grab some dank eats at the ever-growing Oakland Park brewery. This Sunday they'll have Miami Dolphins legend Mark Duper on hand to host the Big Game event. Assorted special food platters will be available, and Funky Buddha Football Squares will be played. Each square is $10, and 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit Maya Macey Foundation. Prizes range from such items as a bottle of the brewery's famous Maple Bacon Coffee Porter to Miami Dolphins autographed footballs. Special brew releases such as Undefeated Saison, MBCP, Last Snow, BA Piña Colada, Daywalker (Ginger Hop Gun), Strawberry Shortcake, Blueberry Cobbler, and No Crusts are scheduled throughout the day leading up to the game, and patrons can get started at the pub as early as noon.
4. Duffy's Sports Bar and Grill
Multiple locations. Visit duffysmvp.com.
According to Sandy Nelson, Duffy’s marketing director, the South Florida chain sold more than six tons of chicken wings during last year's Super Bowl — and this year they are trying to break that record. To make that happen, Duffy's is advertising a special Super Bowl wings and baby back ribs platter ($13.99) that comes with fries and slaw. Every Duffy's is running different drink specials, but according to the Deerfield Beach location, there will be some extremely low deals on select buckets of beer. With TVs from wall to wall, Duffy's might be the move if you're looking for a solid beer-and-wings experience for the game.
3. Tap 42
5050 Town Center Circle, #247, Boca Raton. Call 561-235-5819, or visit tap42.com.
What if we told you for $25 you could eat all the wings and drink all the Blue Point your little heart desired? Yes, that's what we're getting at — Tap 42 is running this deal this Sunday for the Big Game. Starting at 6 p.m. you can walk into the Boca location, plop your butt down, drop $25 on the table, and continually order wings and beer until they close. That's it. Well, then call an Uber, but that has nothing to do with them. Tap 42 is enabling you this Sunday, and you need to give in to their devilish temptations.
Multiple locations. Visit bokampers.com.
Bokampers is always a solid choice if you're looking for a place to watch an important game, but this Sunday it's over-the-top legit. For $69, (nice) guests can purchase a VIP pass that includes a full open premium bar and an all you can eat buffet. The pass also makes you eligible for prizes and giveaways that will take place throughout commercial breaks and halftime. Normal seating is available on a first come, first serve basis, but you're strongly encouraged to reserve the VIP passes prior to arrival.
