Figuring out where to watch the Superbowl in Sacramento is always a big decision. But this year (2014), the food and location should be top of the line since many of us are still healing from the Niners' recent defeat which took them out of the running for this year's big game. No matter which team you choose as your second favorite to cheer on this year. The Super Bowl is happening on Sunday, Feb 2. Don't be caught without somewhere to be at kickoff!

Cheaters Sports Bar

R15 Bar

Shenanigans

705 J Street

Sacramento

916 442 1268

While primarily a bar where people come to watch fights, football is also popular this time of year. This is certainly going to be a popular destination in Sacramento on Superbowl day. Plenty of food options are on the Shenanigans menu, as well as regular drink specials and a friendly staff. Play some pool, cheer for your chosen team and have a great Superbowl in Sacramento.

If a bar or club is not your scene, throwing your own Superbowl party in Sacramento is a great option. Host at your own home or reserve a private room at your favorite restaurant. Great possibilities include:

· Mikuni

· Tex Wasabi

· Applebee's

· Hooters

· Chili's

· The Porch

· Grange

You may also consider watching the Superbowl in Sacramento via a neighborhood block party. Bring out lawn chairs, BBQ and televisions - as well as plenty of blankets, as it's still February after all!

For those who don't really want to watch the Superbowl, consider an un-Superbowl party. Roll out the snacks and deck out the house in the rivaling teams' colors - but don't bother turning on the game. Some viewing options include:

· Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban on ABC Family

· Puppy Bowl X on Animal Planet

· Real Housewives of Atlanta marathon on Bravo

· Groundhog Day on CMT

· Sex and the City maraton on E! 

You don't have to watch the game to have a great time in Sacramento on February 2, however if you are a football fan, rest assured you have plenty of great options for viewing  with plenty of other fans.
