Super Bowl Sunday isn’t just about football. It’s a celebration of overconsumption: One more beer. One more chicken wing. The Super Bowl (5:30 p.m. Sun., CBS) sparks the year’s biggest Sunday funday and these bars will happily aid your indulgence (to a point).
Psycho Suzi’s Motor Lounge
1900 NE. Marshall St., Mpls. • 612-788-9069 • www.psychosuzis.com
Despite being the bane of rural America (well, besides Larry the Cable Guy), all-you-can-eat specials seem an appropriate companion for watching a sport played by oversized humans. Tickets to this Nordeast tiki bar’s “Suzi Bowl” party (4 p.m., $10) include access to an unlimited pizza bar (5-9 p.m.), $2.50 pints and $3 tropical margaritas. It’s not football without a little face-stuffing.
315 1st Av. N., Mpls. • 612-564-4016 • www.insertcoinsmpls.com
For brewski-pounding Madden players, this arcade/nightclub is an ideal Super Bowl hub. Get your video-gaming on while knocking back $2 Budweisers, $3 rails, $5 nachos and quesadillas, and catch the real game on 40-plus HDTVs. Prediction: Fists will bump. Bro hugs will be gratuitous. Sick days will be taken.
3001 Hennepin Av. S., Mpls. • 612-877-7263 • www.uptowncafeteria.com
For the third straight year, the Calhoun Square eatery celebrates this hyper-masculine unofficial holiday by gaying it the hell up. Cafeteria’s “Big Gay Super Bowl Party!” features free Jell-O shots after every touchdown and $6-$7 specialty Cruzan Rum cocktails laden with all the innuendo you’d expect from a Parasole restaurant. Cue the tight end jokes. Michael Rietmulder
