Game On: The Best Super Bowl Parties In The DMV

We're still bummed that our beloved 'Skins were booted from the playoffs, but that doesn't mean we're not seriously stoked to see Baltimore representing in the Super Bowl this weekend. (No offense to our SF crew, obviously.) If you're equally pumped to watch the Ravens take on the 49ers on Sunday, it's time to make a game-watching strategy — and, since there's nothing quite like being surrounded by fellow fans and steadily flowing libations, you'll want to pick the perfect venue. Don't worry, we got your back: Here are our top picks for where to camp out and root for your team.
