Fan Tips for Watching Super Bowl LIII at Boston Sports Bars
In case you haven't heard, Boston sports fans are the most fervent, loyal, and supportive fans in the world – and everyone will be out in full force for Super Bowl LIII. Watching the big game with locals is an experience like no other, so make the most of it!
- Arrive early if you want to get a good seat (or a seat at all). Really early. The game starts 6:30 p.m. Eastern Time and many fans will be hanging out all day and having fun – "tailgating" wherever they happen to be at the moment! Some bars also offer reserved seating – well worth the price in our opinion.
- Take advantage of food and drink specials and forget your diet for the day. Feast on football season favorites like chicken wings, nachos, sliders, and plenty of ice cold beer (Boston-brewed, of course).
- Unless you've been living under a rock, you probably already know who Tom Brady is (the Patriot's superstar quarterback). But keep an eye out for these other MVPs and up-and-coming players and be ready to cheer for them: Trent Brown (left tackle), Sony Michel (running back), and Jason McCourty (cornerback).
- Wear New England fan gear or at least dress in the right colors: navy and red. Bonus points for face paint. Whatever you do, don't wear gold – gold and blue are the colors of the Los Angeles Rams (boo).
