The Bay Area’s NFL teams may not have made it to the Super Bowl this year, but you can still get your game day party on in Richmond. With California’s Los Angeles Rams taking on the New England Patriots, there’s still a great reason to get out and show some state pride during Sunday’s match-up.
To help you in your search for some Sun., Feb. 3, Super Bowl fun, The Rich Life has huddled together a roster of places around Richmond where you can celebrate with friends—along with, perhaps, a beer and a chicken wing in hand.
East Brother Beer Co.
With a brand-new giant projector that will show the Super Bowl on one of its walls—in addition to its large 55’ TV screen behind the bar—East Brother Beer Co. is ready to rock when it comes to game-day viewing. Add in ample seating, a pool table, ping pong, video games and the like, and you have the special sauce for a memory-making Super Bowl Sunday. East Brother will be open from Noon until the game ends, with Kenny’s Heart & Soul food truck serving up good eats from 1-8 p.m. Location: 1001 Canal Blvd. in Richmond.
