Football’s biggest fan? Or just here for the snacks? Either way, Super Bowl LVI is this Sunday, February 13, so it’s time to get your game-day plan on. Here’s where to dine-in or shop for super-snacks and enjoy at home, in Vancouver. —Catherine Dunwoody
The Chickadee Room opens an hour before kick-off so fans can settle in and start fuelling up. Rotating food specials from Juke Fried Chicken’s menu will be offered every quarter, plus drink specials and prizes to be won by playing Football Squares. Reservations are highly recommended.
Hero’s Welcome community pub on Main Street is dishing up a special menu by Top Rope Birria, that includes wings, fries, Philly cheesesteak-meets-smashburger-meets tacos, drink specials and complimentary snack plates. Fundraising for a local veterans’ charity is a nice touch, too, considering this new bar is in what was once the Army, Navy & Air Force Veterans Taurus Unit.
BC Kitchen, at the Parq Hotel, will have all 15 TVs with sound on, while you tuck into game-watching classics like nachos, Nathan’s hot dogs, sliders, tater tots and loads of drink specials, plus your chance to win fantastic prizes all day long.
Organic Ocean will deliver all the best fishy-finger foods right to your door, if you order before 1 p.m. on February 10; otherwise, you can pre-order and pick up on February 12 in False Creek. Think bacon-wrapped scallops, a tuna poke kit, pre-cooked shrimp you can tuck into soft rolls.
Save On Foods does supermarket Super Bowl snacks like a champ, with ready-made pulled pork (don’t forget to grab rolls), Italian meatballs, tavern-style wings, seven-layer dip—all the classics to turn your living room into your own sports bar.
