The 2015 NFL Season finally comes to a close this Sunday, as the Denver Broncos take on the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 in California.

Didn’t get an invite to a Super Bowl house party? Couldn’t pony up the thousands of dollars necessary to take a trek out to Santa Clara? Luckily, Austin has plenty of bars and restaurants that are eager to help get your football fix going this Sunday. Here are 10 of our favorites…

10.) Whisler’s

Get some Bloody Marys and La Barbecue at Whisler's for Super Bowl Sunday!

Already hit up West 6th the night before? Try the East Side. Whisler’s will have the game on both inside and outside. And who doesn’t want their Bloody Mary’s mixed with some barbeque- La Barbecue will be onsite serving their BBQ that has people waiting in just as long a line as Franklin’s!

9.) THE W

The only people who go to the Super Bowl are the super-rich and celebrities right? Why not class up Super Sunday in your own way! The W is hosting their own Super Bowl party, complete with complimentary bites at halftime. Best of all? It’s FREE!

8.) PLUCKERS

Football and wings- the perfect combination. Make sure to reserve your spot at any Austin-area Pluckers and if you get the final score correct, you’ll win free wings for a year!

7.) The ABGB

Ready to let your creativity flow? Then put it on video! Make a commercial about what you love about the ABGB and enter it into our sweepstakes. Finalists will be shown here at the ABGB during halftime of the big game on February 7th. (Did we mention that we are showing the game on a big screen here?)

6.) SAN JAC SALOON

Are you a Panthers fan stuck in Austin? Then head over to San Jac Saloon, the official headquarters of the Carolina Panthers! Carolina ex-pats will be drooling at the very hometown menu, too. Pulled pork sandwiches and Cheerwine Bourbon Cocktails are on deck! Are you?

5.) THE LOCAL

The home of Bronco fans for the past six years gets to host another Super Bowl. The place will be packed – the bar says to get there as early as 11 am for good seats! At least the bathrooms won’t be an issue- The Local added a few portable toilets to prepare for the game.

4.) THE GOODNIGHT

Don’t want to trek downtown? Head on over to the Goodnight. If you get bored of the game, there’s plenty of bowling to go around, and save your stomach- there’s a halftime buffet!

3.) PUNCH BOWL SOCIAL

Ever wanted to host your own private party inside a bar? Luckily, Punch Bowl Social helps you do that. For just $65 per person you can rent one of Punch Bowl’s private karaoke rooms and have yourself a feast, with unlimited wings, hot dogs, frito pies, nachos, and Bud Light. With your expected food coma, you’ll definitely get a good night’s sleep.

2.) CRAFTSMAN

How bout a a SOUPer bowl party on the Super Bowl? Craftsman is doing just that. Sample seven different stews created by seven different local brewmasters, and vote on who gets their beer on tap at Craftsman for the next month! If stew isn’t your thing, Garbo’s Lobsters Truck and Pueblo Viejo Taco Truck will be on hand as well.
