Where to Watch the Super Bowl (And Eat Well)
The Pony Room
The Pony Room at Rancho ValenciaSaddle up to this new equestrian-themed bar at Rancho Valencia. For game day, Chef Eric Bauer's making a batch of Candied Garlic Chicken Wings served with cilantro, sweet soy and pickled carrot.
Meet up here for brunch (fried chicken on a biscuit, donuts) and hang out with a craft beer until the game starts at 3 p.m. They're doing barrel-aged rare beer flights (three-glass sampler for $16) all day.
Very considerate - they're adding more TV's so every seat has a good view of the game. The menu will feature chef's favorite cookout selections; the bar's got $5 well drinks, $4 select drafts and $3 pickle backs.

Hiatus Bar at Cusp
Bar manager Nate Howell is hosting their Super Bowl Party from 12 p.m. to the end of the game. They're serving $8 Templeton manhattans and $3 Fernet shots and offering half off on all of Chef Donald’s Lockhart’s flatbreads.
Pacifica Del Mar
The Ocean Bar at Pacifica Del Mar is hosting a Super Bowl party with specials including $6 martinis (they've got over 200 kinds of vodka), beer specials and themed bar bites.
Cheer your team on with a burger and a craft beer or drown your sorrows in their long whiskey and bourbon list. They do flights of 4 samples each of beer or whiskey if you're feeling non-committal.
Have you heard about the so wrong, it's right Bacon Explosion? A bacon-stuffed sausage torpedo that's enveloped in a meaty quilt of bacon? The Linkery will be serving slices of it in sandwiches on Sunday; the bacon's house cured, of course.
George's at The Cove
The game will be screening here at George's mid-level bar. 10 taps of beer, and a better-than-most bar food menu. Try the grilled fish tacos or George's signature smoked chicken soup.
