No matter what team you may support, the abundance of sun, crystal clear skies, and warm temperatures will give fans an experience different from the rest of the nation. Watch the game at a variety of indoor and outdoor venues to cheer on your favorite team.
Tucked away in one of Palm Spring’s trendiest hotels, The Saguaro, El Jefe will be hosting a one of a kind game day event with amazing specials on drinks and yummy Mexican food. Margaritas and draft beers are$3.00 while tacos de carnitas, pollo, y hongo go for the price of only $2.00. Specials start at 2:00 pm until then end of the game, so let’s hope the game goes into overtime to enjoy these great deals.
Next on our list of places to watch the Super Bowl in Palm Springs is Azul Tapas Lounge and Patio. This staple venue on Palm Canyon Drive will air the game on every TV in the property, including a wide screen projector for maximal viewing of the game. Happy hour will also be in effect throughout the day with beer starting at $3.50 and well drinks averaging around $4.00.

In downtown, the popular bar & restaurant, The Village Pub, has 38 TVs and happy hour specials starting at 10:00 a.m. For those of you who like to do the Super Bowl the gay way, stop by Hunters Palm Springs for a nice cocktail as they open their back bar for the Super Bowl. There will also be snacks and a BBQ so be sure to come with an appetite.
Pizza is always a favorite for football games. Giuseppe's Pizza & Pasta is the go-to place for sporting events with big screen television over the bar. Fans can take advantage of the game day special of 2 large pizzas with up to 4 toppings (hand tossed or Chicago style) served with 12 Wings for only $48.00.

Finally, if you really are a die-hard football fan… we definitely recommend Super Bowl Sunday at Dickie O’Neal’s Irish Pub. This is an all-day, all you can eat and drink ticketed Superbowl event that definitely will give you a bang for your buck. The day begins with a breakfast tailgate party from 8 a.m.-11 a.m., followed by an 11 a.m. pre-game lunch feast, continued by Game on! Supper at 4 p.m., and finally ends with an End of the Game Champions Toast! This will be a Super Bowl experience you won’t want to miss. With all these different events going on we highly recommend you to come out, have fun, and enjoy the big game!
