No matter which team you’re rooting for, the Beat has a few spots for you to get some beer and grub. And lots of yelling. Maybe even some guys punching the air. I cannot promise your safety if you are rooting for the wrong team; I have a feeling bars in LA will be heavily for the 49ers.
The Parish downtown will be offering a Gridiron Special ($40)—see image above—which includes: 20 Stout-Glazed Chicken Wings, A Growler (half gallon jug) of ESP Noble Ale, Housemade Pork Rinds, and Fried Olives. Football fans can countdown to SUPER BOWL XLVII on the restaurant’s 80-inch flat screen TV, while enjoying Lane’s selection of specially-created tailgate sandwiches ($8-11) alongside The Parish Burger ($14). Doors open at 3pm. Kick-off at 3:30pm
Napa Valley Grille in Westwood Village welcomes all football-following foodies to watch the big game in style. Big-screen TVs located throughout the spacious bar area and sunny outdoor patio will ensure everyone has a prime view while the restaurant celebrates Game Day with 50-cent Chicken Wings, $2 Pabst Blue Ribbons.

The Mixing Room in the JW Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. LIVE’s is offering an all-you-can-eat tailgate buffet for $25 per person as well as team-inspired cocktails and beer specials.

Muddy Leek in Culver City will offer manly treats like Chicken Fried Bacon, Beer Cheese Fries and Buffalo Chicken Mac n’ Cheese.
The Tripel in Playa Del Rey is serving a Pretzel Burger with Caramelized Onion, Poppy Seed Slaw, Aged Cheddar and the un Super Bowl-sounding Red Kuri Squash Dumplings Brussels Sprouts, Tangy Mushrooms, and Chimay Cheese Sauce.
Hudson House in Redondo Beach is cooking up Arame Chicken Drumettes with Spicy Red Curry, which I can attest to being outstanding. I also recommend the peel-and-eat shrimp. Get their early as this little bar will fill up fast.
Tom Bergin’s Tavern in mid-city will be serving up brunch as well as a “Go for Two” special with $2 Miller High Life Draught and $2 Housemade Pretzels with Mustard. The “Two Minute Drill” special will offer the Fish ‘n Chips and Cottage Pie for $2 during the 2 minutes following a successful 2 point conversion. That’s if you know what a 2 point conversion is. Or a cottage pie for that matter.
