Where to Watch the Superbowl in Adams MorganSuper Bowl LII is this Sunday, February 4, at 6:30 PM ET. Football fans across the nation are eagerly anticipating this year’s Super Bowl which pits the five-time champions, the New England Patriots, against the underdogs, the Philadelphia Eagles. Both teams garner strong reactions and have intensely loyal followers, so this Sunday is bound to be a tense match-up. In honor of the two teams, restaurants are serving local fare from each city - look for cheesesteaks and chowder alongside game day favorites such as nachos and wings.
Adams Morgan is a multicultural neighborhood, known primarily for its eclectic mix of restaurants and bars, ranging from Ethiopian and Korean restaurants to dance halls and blues bars. Historic row houses line the streets, and independent stores thrive, in this uniquely international section of D.C. What better excuse to explore a new neighborhood than the Super Bowl, so we’ve rounded up some of our neighborhood favorites to watch the game this Sunday.
The two floors of Black Squirrel’s flagship location will be split into separate viewing areas - “Eagles Central” will be on the main floor and “Patriots Central” in the downstairs taproom. Choose a floor, choose a team. There will be $5 Goose Island IPAs, hot cocktails, and a $10 beer and shot combo along with standard bar fare such as wings, Carnitas and Chili Cheese Nachos, and sliders.
