Where to Spend Your Super Bowl Sunday in Fort Collins
If you don't want to spend Super Bowl Sunday sprawled out on your couch, Fort Collins has some fantastic places to get your football fix, while also enjoying some great game day grub, giveaways and drinks.
Put on your orange and blue to cheer on the Broncos at one of these local bars or restaurants, and get ready to celebrate big if they win!
If you don't want to deal with the crowds and parking in Old Town, Ryan's is the perfect spot for you to spend your Sunday afternoon. With 42 TVs inside the bar and grill, it's guaranteed that you won't miss any important plays or even those hilarious commercials in-between. When it comes to game day grub, they offer hearty wings and burgers, plus plenty of yummy appetizers that are ideal for sharing. Quench your thirst with everything from domestic and craft beers, to wine and cocktails. The arcade area is great if the kiddos happen to be tagging along or for shooting some pool during the game.
Heading to Mo Jeaux's is an awesome option – especially for those who live around the Campus West area because you won't have to worry about driving home after the game. The bar will be offering $2.50 Coors and Coors Light drafts all day plus $3 local pints. The kitchen opens at 11 a.m. and will be serving up some of the best BBQ and Cajun dishes in town.
With how big of a place Wash Bar is, you definitely won't have to worry about finding a seat. Game day specials include $8 pitchers and $3 pints, as well as a B.Y.O. bloody Mary bar and great food deals from a menu that has everything one would want to snack on while watching football. Guests will also have the chance to win a 40" LCD TV that will be being raffled off...how nice would that be for football viewing next season?!
Even though Trail Head is right in the heart of Old Town, it has a bit more of a low-key vibe than some of the other bars around it. Happy hour happens here from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., with deals on pints, pitchers, and well drinks. In addition, on Sundays you can get 12 wings and a pitcher here for $16 (domestic) / $19 (select craft). If you do choose Trail Head as your bar to watch the Broncos, be sure to get there early because seating is limited.
Pizza, wings, and beer are pretty much the essentials needed for a full-day of football watching, and that's exactly what Krazy Karl's offers. All of their pizza options are unique and so delicious, and this week's special is a large Chicken Parm pizza for $8 (can you guess why?). Wings will only be .65 cents. Fans will have the chance to win three Super Bowl 50 Broncos jerseys that will be raffled off at halftime and at the end of the game. Karl's is accepting reservations in the Bierhaus for parties of six or more people only.
With 24 flat screens, damn good drink specials, tons of tables, and a pool/arcade area, Slider's is always one of my favorite places in town to catch a game – and winning $250 by participating in their Super Bowl contest last year didn't hurt much either. Their menu has everything from nachos and wings, to sandwiches, burgers, and burritos. Going to Slider's is another convenient option if you want to avoid all of the Old Town hubbub.
Mulligan's is throwing their very own Bowl Party, and you are invited! 3 p.m. will kick off happy hour with half-off prices on their new Wee Bites menu and drink deals, including $3 Bud Light and Coors Light. Besides having over 30 TVs spread out around the pub for your viewing pleasure, Mulligan's will also be airing the big game on their big screen.
The atmosphere at Island Grill is always lively, so you can bet that while the Broncos are playing, it'll be even rowdier! The game will be on all 22 of their TVs as well as on the 120" HD big screen. If you want to start your day of celebrating earlier than 4:30 p.m., this is the place to go! There will be a breakfast buffet from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and an ALL-DAY happy hour featuring $2.50 bloody Marys, mimosas and 10-ounce beers, and 75-cent wings. But wait...there's more. How does all-you-can-eat for $8.99 including hot dogs, chili con carne, tater tots, chicken nuggets, chips and french onion dip, and brownies during the game sound?
