2. More Places with Big Screens in Boston
Want to avoid the crowds at Boston's sports bars but still watch the big game with like-minded folk in a convivial setting and perhaps enjoy a good meal?
Virtually every restaurant in the city has a bar, and almost every bar in Boston has several or more big HD screens.
La Cucina - Assembly Row - Go for drinks and munchies at the bar, or enjoy the innovative Italian cuisine for dinner
Now all you have to do is pack your Patriots gear, hop on that plane, and get ready for a memorable experience!
4. Patriot Place - Celebrate on the Patriots' Home Territory
True, Super Bowl does not take place at Gillette Stadium - but you can still head down to Foxborough, have a tailgate party in the parking lot, and then watch the game at any of the great sports bars in Patriot Place next to Gillette.
If you're planning to party, don't drive back to Boston unless you have a designated driver. Stay at the Renaissance Hotel at Patriot Place or one of the other nearby hotels. Since the Super Bowl is not at Gillette (but maybe some year?), you should be able to get attractive rates.
