Outside the Bubble
Whether people watch the Super Bowl for the commercials, halftime show, the atmosphere or actually want to watch the game, no one can argue that this is the most exciting weekend for football.
The real question is where to watch the game. There is always the option of going to a friends house like senior Chris Mars is doing.
Or head on over to Hughes-Trigg Student Center for a Super Bowl watching party hosted by Omega Psi Phi.
“DJ, food, games, come on over,” junior Justin Morales said.
If neither of those work, the SMU Wesley Foundation is having a Super Bowl party at member’s house if people want to hang out or bring food like junior Angela Uno.
But college is about being adventurous, so step off of the Hilltop and try one of these five options:
Don’t have a team picked out? Aw Shucks & Big Shucks Oyster Bar is having specials for both Seattle Seahawks and Denver Bronco fans. Chow down on snow crab and shrimp for a New England dish. Not feeling seafood? Bronco chicken wings is also on the menu. Big Shucks is located at 6232 E. Mockingbird Lane and is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Not a people person but staying home isn’t an option? The higher-end choice Eddie V’s offers private dining spaces that come with their own TVs. Game? Check. Food? Check. No people invading precious space? Check. Eddie V’s is located at 4023 Oak Lawn Ave., Suite 110.
Want to stick to pizza and brisket? The music venue the Granada Theater becomes a giant watch party with $1 pizza and brisket. Not over 21-years-old and/ or prefer a healthier option? Sundown, at Granada next door, is all ages and offers healthy food. For those that haven’t been to the Granada Theater yet, the address is 3524 Greenville Ave.
Biggest Little Super Sunday Party. The name alone is a good reason to head over to the new Three Sheets in Uptown. It’s new and watching the Seahawks and Broncos battle it out in the freezing cold will be interesting. Three Sheets can be found at 3113 Ross Ave.
Sixty-inch TVs not big enough? Watch the game on a movie theater screen where the infamous Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested at the Texas Theatre. Instead of bar stools and leather booths, try red velveteen covered couches while you watch Bruno Mars’ halftime show. The Texas Theatre is located at 213 W. Jefferson Blvd.
