Game On! We've Got All Your Super Bowl Plans

Maybe you're really excited about seeing Beyoncé perform during the halftime show on Sunday. Or, maybe you're a dedicated fan, and you actually care about the score of the game. Regardless, if you're anything like us, the Super Bowl is a time to be social. So, whether that means sharing a bowl of chips or one of those "Oh-my-god-did-you-just-see-that?" moments with your friends, you'll probably be in the mood for a gathering.
Lucky for you, we've got the lowdown on all the NYC hot spots. From happy hours to all-you-can-eat deals and the biggest LED screens, our list of SP happs will have you ready to ditch the couch and go out. And, if you're having too much fun to stop and watch the commercial breaks, you can always set your DVR and catch up later. Something tells us a touchdown or that wardrobe malfunction we're all waiting for will be way more exciting in a lively bar.
