Super Bowl Celebrations

Although Chicago isn’t in the Super Bowl (better luck next year, Bears), sports fans can find plenty of reasons to celebrate and feast on delicious bar fare at these hot spots that are pulling out all the stops for game day.

Public House

1. Public House
Perfect for large groups, Public House has booths offering table tap service—beer taps situated at the booths so guests can easily refill their glass without missing a moment of the game playing on 20-plus plasma TVs. Fill up at the build-your-own nachos station or go all out with the $100 Pro Bowler group package (eight daily sausages, four dozen wings, choice of fried pickles or cheese curds, pretzel bites and three buckets of Bud Light). 400 N. State St., 312.265.1240

2. Oyster Bar at Shaw’s Crab House
The game may be out East, but the Oyster Bar is celebrating with an all-you-can-eat, Louisiana-style crawfish boil ($30). The full dinner menu will also be available, and the bar will be offering all-day $5 bloody mary and beer specials. Now that’s what we call taking it up a notch! 21 E. Hubbard St., 312.527.2722

3. Jake Melnick’s Corner Tap
It wouldn't be the Super Bowl without Jake's! This perennial favorite just off the Mag Mile will be serving its signature wings in all six flavors and heaping platters of barbecue goodness. Catching the game at home? Then bring Jake's to you, thanks to a pick-up catering menu boasting not only wings, but brisket, smoked chicken and irresistible sides. Smoked barbecue baked beans, anyone? 41 E. Superior St., 312.266.0400

4. Sedgwick’s
Feb. 2 also just happens to be National Tater Tot Day (who knew?), and Sedgwick’s in Old Town will be celebrating with a tator tot buffet with an endless toppings bar featuring traditional accompaniments along with pulled pork, chili, buffalo chicken and guacamole ($8). Game-day food and drink specials abound, and be sure to enter the tailgate-themed halftime giveaway! 1935 N. Sedgwick St., 312.337.7900

5. Dunlay’s on the Square
Catch all the Super Bowl action while supporting a great cause at this Logan Square favorite. Enjoy all-inclusive party packages ($100 per person) featuring unlimited drinks and classic tailgating fare, including cheeseburger sliders, pulled pork and smoked barbeque hot wings. Best of all, a portion of the ticket price goes to Stand Up for Kids, an nonprofit fighting to end youth homelessness. 3137 W. Logan Blvd., 773.227.2400
