Are you ready for some epic Super Bowl LII fun? Well, if you don’t already have a pre-arranged party to go to, not to worry. There are plenty of places around the Coachella Valley that will help you root for your favorite team, with drinks, food and sporty comradery.

The 19th Hole- This Palm Desert original will give you a home town feel, as you hoot and holler for your team to win big. Enjoy some of their famous Fish and Chips, or their delish Chili Cheese Fries (my fave), and of course some Chicken Wings are a must for game day. And since its Sunday, you can dive into their Bloody Mary Bar. Super Bowl specials will be on hand for the special day, including discounted drink prices, and raffles prizes. For home spun fun, the 19th Hole is the one. 760-772-6696

Big Rock Pub- Located at the Indian Springs Golf Club in Indio, its popularity continues to grow as one of the Coachella Valley’s hot spots for sports and entertainment. With a hip, music inspired interior and stunning terrace, the restaurant and pub is a banquet for the eyes. Their menu offers eclectic items, all with a music themed play on words such as, Hotel Calamari, Tito Puerco Nachos, Livin’ on the Wedge, and my favorite, Fleet wood Mac & Cheese, plus many, many others. Their full bar has concoctions galore, as well as an impressive beer selection. For Super Bowl, Big Rock will be offering special seating. Guests may reserve a table for $25 a person, which will be put towards the final bill. There will also be plenty of give-a-ways from KCLB 93.7, which will be on hand for extra game day fun. Tables fill up fast, so make your reservations today if you want to go big, at Big Rock Pub!


The Beer Hunter- La Quinta’s newly renovated sports bar will be one of the flagship spots for Super Bowl mania. The spruced up restaurant and bar has a myriad of TV’s to watch the game, a fantastic food menu, and a full bar with a crazy selection of beers to choose from. Super Bowl will indeed be an extra special day at The Beer Hunter as it is one of their busiest days of the year. There will be beer specials, and Budweiser Beer Promo girls floating around to add a little special event sparkle to the day. No cover will be charged and no reservations taken, seating will be on a first come, first served basis. So get going early on Super Bowl, to get your seat at The Beer Hunter!
