Where does everybody watch the Super Bowl?

14 posts in this topic

As a restaurant manager for many years, I have had an "argument" with every owner about how to get people into the establishment. With the exception of CO (since everyone there is already away from home), I have had a hard time filling the bar for the Super Bowl. My stance is that most people get together and have parties at someones home or just hang out with roomates, husbands and wives and family. How does everyone here spend Super Bowl Sunday?

I've never watched one at a bar. Even in College where I spent most of my free time in a bar. There always seems to be a party where everyone brings a beverage and something to eat to share. That way you can hear all the commercials too.

60" Plasma HDTV, Lazy Boy recliner, plenty of good beer, NAD/Canton/NHT stereo that kicks. Why would I want to go to any bar and then get a DUI when I come home?

I noticed alot of bars are advertising all you can eat and drink for $25.00, that is a recipe for a dwi. I usually watch the game at home or at a friends house.

I can't wait to show this thread to my boss grin.gif This is what I've been saying all along, I would much rather watch the game in the comfort of my own home with my couch, TV, cheap beverages, TONS of food and good friends.

Good lord shiner! What kind of closed-minded dictator do you work for!?!?!? J/K.

Can't watch the Super Bowl at a bar. Gotta do it at home, like others have said, with good (and cheap) food and drink, good friends, and a place to kick up your legs and make yourself comfortable.

im surprised that nobody has chimed in that has a nice permy with TV's etc. that said they were going to watch the game on the lake. if I could do that, fish and watch the game I would in a heartbeat.

I also have to say I have never been to a bar to watch the game. I will take my comfy couch, HDTV, surround sound and fireplace.

In the comfort of my home in front of the fireplace. I don't have HDTV and all the electronic goodies, but I'll take watching it at home over a bar any day.

My wife and I have the option of three different Superbowl parties. I agree that a bar is great for Monday night football but not the Superbowl.

This year and last year I have borrowed a projector, 100" screen and stereo system and watch the game on that. It is pretty sweet seeing the players in almost fullsized.

At home and having people over. Bars are spendy and too many people.

Either at home or the neighbors. Usually go to my mom & dad's house, but not this year.

      With social media the new normal is for people to rant the open airways.  Unfortunately, some times people cross the line. I don't think that has happened here, but I would also say that I have sympathy for the new owners of the Landing.  I continue to go there knowing I will pay more than I generally would want to.  I would probably go more if their prices were lower as they are much closer to me than The Crescent.

      Another sunrise and another sunset made my day yesterday as I  enjoyed a day on such a grand lake. I spent part of the morning in old Minnesota making some phone calls, planning my day and even wetting a line.
       Berry and his crew Ted, Mike  and Scott had left early do to the weather conditions in southern Minnesota. They only managed 3 more fish after the move. "Stupid fish".
       I hung out in old minnesota until the generator ran out of gas so I could figure out how long it ran on a tank. !0 1/2 hours as she quit running at 8:30 am. Sure would be nice to have that burg system? Oh that's right its in the snow bank . "Stupid thing" not sure why it fails.
       After fueling up the generator I made the morning rounds to be a little disappointed with the fishing report "Stupid fish" Oh well as Wayne always says if we caught them all there would not be any to catch.
       I then went over to clean and prep Montana for Brian and Stacy as they were coming up for there 25th anniversary.
        I also gave Reid and Jason a couple tips as they were off to find the very elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie. They only caught one walleye in North Carolina so I told them when they came back it would be in a new spot.
       I then said goodbye to Steve from Michigan  and his crew in Florida. They did horrible on low and did not fair much better in florida the third night. They did have some action on tip ups though just outside the house.
       Then over to north Dakota where again no fish "stupid fish" what a horrible spot that turned out to be. We talked and I told them I would be back at 10:30 to move the house. Arriving back at 10:38  we were on the move. I told them if all went well they would be wetting a line again by noon. I also said if they wanted they could ride in north Dakota. Scott ask if I had any more shovels and I said sure do I have 3  so they all pitched in to dig her out. The move went well and just like I promised they were wetting a line  by noon. Cory said the ride was way smoother then he expected.
       The phone rings and its Stacy and Brian 2 hours early, perfect as the house is ready to go. At the same time Buddy Hillmen calls and says he is over the pressure ridge and were going to open another mile of road. OH! Oh! plan A is now switched to plan B. I get them checked in and I'm off to help with the new road.
       It did not take long to burn up a 1/2 tank of gas. I checked in with Buddy Hillmen and headed home to  gas up, check the fluids and get back out to the houses as I still had more work there. Moving north Carolina went well other then a few issues with the extension cords. As my very good pal Wayne says. "Here at Cookies we do it right cause we do it Twice"
       Once North Carolina was all set I was back out to Hillmen's highway where we would keep plugging away on the new mile of road. 2 hours later and I was heading home for a quick bite before making the evening rounds.
      Stacy and Brian were the first stop where Stacy had lost 5 fish at the hole. I gave her a tip on landing them so we will see if that pans out.
       Reid and Jason found north Carolina and had a blast fishing outside all day. They landed a few walleyes but no" elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie". I guess that's why I call them elusive.
       Last stop was at North Dakota ! I had played a round of Texas Hold um with them the night before and wanted another shot. 
        Scott did not play, he sure deserves to catch a few fish as he was always holding his fishing rod and jigging  when I stopped in. One fish was all they caught on the new spot "stupid fish".
       I lost a second time in hold um and headed home where I ran into a local Dave him and his son had set up just to the north east of us where they landed 3 nice fish.
       Well back to the grind again today. we have mike coming for north Dakota and Kieth and his kids coming for florida. I told both them that check in was at 2pm.

      I believe that one in Monticello closed down

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.
