Wings and Beer for Patriots vs Cowboys

Want to find a fun/cool place to watch the Big Game. Good food is a plus. Sports bars can be very chain-y but would like some festive atmosphere.

    Barney's Beanery has beer and pretty decent wings.

      My favorite sports bar is BIG WANGS in Hollywood.

      If you go, make sure you order the TATER TOTS.

        I think you left out a very important piece of information - "Are you a Cowboys fan or a Patriots fan?"

        If you're a Patriots fan, then I would suggest, for the right atmosphere, in Santa Monica:

        If a Cowboys fan, I wouldn't know as I stopped liking them after Tom Landry retired; however, a reasonable guess woiuld be some Texan Honky Tonk Bar wirth bull riding:

        Bad news - It defintely looks like a chain restaurant with poor food quality to match; although, to be fair, I've never tried it and most likely never will voluntarily (unless I was a die-hard Cowboy fan).

          Get to Sonny Mclean's Early. People stake out their tables an it usually fills to capacity before the game and management give preference to regulars

            Packer fan (for my sins) but I am omnivorous when it comes to football.

              Well as a Packer fan, you should quelch your omnivoroousness NFL/Packer thirst at Pickwick's Pub in Woodland Hills (but you probaly knew that already):
