     When the January snow becomes too dreary, eager football fans look forward to what is, to them, the best day of the year: Superbowl Sunday.

     Whether you proudly wave a foam finger for the New England Patriots, or want to watch the Atlanta Falcons lose, there are some fun and festive places around town to enjoy the game on Feb. 5.

Dublin House

1850 Dominion Way

Price: $$

     If you are looking for a place to drink cheap beer and watch the game from one of the many TVs this bar has to offer, Dublin House is the place to go.

     This dive bar offers a variety of food from pizza to sandwiches. Drinks are plentiful, and the service is great.

     The atmosphere is that of an older bar, so expect to see some older people in the establishment. This doesn’t mean that it will be less fun though, as the older crowds can get just as rowdy on game day.

     Karaoke is usually a tradition on Thursday nights, but with the big game, the staff may make an exception and have it on Sunday.

Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar

1765 Briargate Pkwy. #803

Price: $$$

     If you are itching to be seated at a table with a large group, Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar is the place for you.

     Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar, with its inclusive bar and restaurant, has a variety of gourmet burgers and sides, as well as a long list of beers and drinks. If you are not in the mood for alcohol, there are also soft drinks and shakes.

     Happy hour also falls during the game from 3-6 p.m. Customer can get $1 off any craft beer, or a margarita for just $5.

     There are plenty of TVs to watch the game, but the atmosphere is not that of a rowdy sports bar.

     The food is delicious and the drinks are reasonably priced, so keep this place in mind for your Superbowl Sunday.

C.B. & Potts

261 Kaycee Case Place

Price: $$$$

     If you’re in the mood for some fi lling food and great beer, C.B. & Potts is the place to go watch the game.

     The macaroni and cheese is a staple item at the restaurant, and the choices of seasonal beers are plentiful. If you aren’t in the mood for alcohol, Potts offers a variety of soft drinks, juices and teas.

     During football games, Potts offers $1 off their fl agship beers, including the Blonde Hefeweizen, Buttface Amber Ale, 71 Pale Ale and Big Red IPA.

     If you are dragging your children to watch the game, kids eat for $1 on Sundays with the purchase of an entrée. If you want to escape the game for a bit, there is always the option to go out on the patio or into the dining room for a quiet timeout.

Fox & Hound Sports Tavern

3101 New Center Point Drive

Price: $$$

     This sports tavern has a wide variety of margaritas, martinis, mixed drinks and wines. Over 50 types of beer are offered at the restaurant.
