What to do in Boston this weekend: Super Bowl Sunday edition

January 31, 2014

Pretty much the entire weekend revolves around the unofficial holiday that is Super Bowl Sunday.

If you want to enjoy the game with the knowledge that the money you’re spending on food and drinks is going to a good cause, check out the Super Bowl Extravaganza at SkyBox 109 Gastrosports in Natick. Burger and wing specials make it easy on the wallet, and 20% of all proceeds will help the Park family of Framingham, who lost their home in a fire in November. More information is available here.

Around the city, Olde Magoun’s Saloon in Somerville is holding a chili cook off, offering Bruins and Celtics tickets as prizes for the best chili cooks who show up. It’s followed by a $14 all-you-can-eat BBQ dinner for the game.

Cask n’ Flagon will be giving away prizes every time a team scores during the Super Bowl, so you’ll be hoping for a shoot-out. And Clery’s will hold a chicken wing eating contest in celebration of the big game.

Finally, for all you facial-hair aficionados, Beardfest 2014 will be held from 2:00 to 5:00 on Sunday at the Center for the Arts of the Armory in Somerville. It’s probably the weirdest way to kick off Super Bowl Sunday, but it won’t be a disappointment.

And, of course, if you’re looking for last-minute dinner reservations, head to BEELINE and grab passes for a table at AriaTrescaTavern RoadGennaro’s 5 North Square, and Brutole.

Enjoy your weekend, and own your night.
