Best Places to Watch the Super Bowl in Minneapolis

Friday February 01, 2013

Alright. So the Super Bowl is upon us again, and the Vikings aren't in it (again).

Most likely, the only reason you'll be watching the game is A) To make some ridiculous prop bets (ya, we're sure Alicia Keys will stretch the national anthem over 113 seconds) B) Watching all the commercials so you're not the weird person at the watercooler the next day and C) To break your new year's diet resolution in one beautiful and enthusiastic gorge-fest.

So, we sent intern extrordinare Kate Shropshire out to do all the heavy eating for you and determine the Top 5 Places in Minneapolis to Watch the Super Bowl. Also, she's a Packer fan, so do with that what you will. Take it away, Kate.

Super Bowl Sunday is almost here! And just because the beloved Vikings are not in the Superbowl (Editor's Note: Neither are the Packers) doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy a little fun on game day!
