The 17 Best Ways to Celebrate Super Bowl Sunday in Philadelphia
Score some deals (free shots, ice cream footballs, greased-pole doughnuts) while the players score some touchdowns.
There are lots of ways to show team spirit, from the physical, like dying your beard green à la Marc Vetri, to the theoretical, such as promising free beer to all of Philadelphia if the Eagles win the Super Bowl. You could even turn your wedding cake into a tribue to the Birds, just like this couple did.
This week, the team spirit is coarsing through the City of Brotherly Love as local bars, restaurants and bakeries offer food and drink specials to support the Eagles’ quest to win the Lombardi Trophy.
Whether you’re rooting for Philly or New England (or whether you’re watching for Justin Timberlake or really only care about the commercials), check out these local spots for the best game-day deals.
For at-home viewers hosting a crowd, this one is for you: All week, you can order eight Korean Fried Chicken Wings plus a side of marinated bean sprouts, broccoli stem kimchi or sautéed spinach for $20.

7. Mac Mart
What do you get when you smother a hot dog under a pile of seven-cheese mac and cheese? The Under Dog! Available all week. You know you want one.
