If you don't want to watch Super Bowl XLVII at home, here are some ideas in Walnut Creek to take in the action:
- Dan's Irish Sports Bar was a winner of the Walnut Creek Patch Readers Choice poll as the best place to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, so that's an indirect recommendation as a good place to watch the Super Bowl, yes? Dan's is at 1524 Civic Dr.
- Pyramid Alehouse: Head to the Walnut Creek location. It's advertising happy hour prices all day on Super Sunday. Pyramid is at 1410 Locust St., Walnut Creek, (925) 946-1520.
- McCovey's is advertising that you purchase a $39.99 ticket in person at the restaurant, and you’ll be rewarded with a reserved seat and an all-you-can eat buffet of barbecue chicken, ribs and tri-tip. McCovey's is at 1444 N. California Blvd., Walnut Creek, (925) 944-9444.
That's scratching the surface. Where do you recommend as a good place to watch the San Francisco 49ers go helmet to helmet with the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday afternoon? Or perhaps a place that doesn't center around food and drink?
Business owners, if you're running specials for people who watch the game at your venues Sunday, please share details in the comments.
And you won't find Terry White of Walnut Creek at any of these bars, because he will be at the Superdome in New Orleans enjoying the game, courtesy of 49ers CEO Jed York.
Tell us where else in Walnut Creek people should go to enjoy the game, shout at the top of their lungs with dozens of other fans and absorb great atmosphere.
Also, just for fun,
