Ready to break from your Super Bowl tradition? Here's some other options to just watching the big game on your home theater.
FREE AS IN BEER: Though you'll have to pay $12 for admission to A Taste of Jamaica's Super Bowl watching party in Fort Worth, the reggae-playing, jerk chicken serving spot will be passing out free Hennessy, rum punch, and Red Stripe to the guests. Hungry folks can nosh on the curry chicken and spicy catfish while watching the Saints destroy the Colts. Yeah, we said it. Party starts at noon, daily buffet runs from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
4TH DOWN CROWN: All locations of Humperdink's Restaurant & Brewery are planning Super Bowl parties with their 30 HDTVs and huge superscreen planing pre-game, game, and post-game analysis. When the Colts turn over on downs in the first quarter, order a $3 Crown and Down you-call-it to memorialize the occasion of Manning NOT winning the MVP. Beer drinkers will be happy enough with $3 23-ouch mugs of on tap beers, and they've even got $1.99 mimosas if you're there early enough...you know, for the chicks. Or Payton Manning.
BIGGER THAN BIG: Gilley's, that old honky tonk playground in Dallas, is pulling together a star-studded event for charity. Starting at noon, the fan fest event will include an autograph session with local superstars, a quarterback camp, and even tailgating tips. It's five bucks for adults, though kids get in free during the fan fest. But that's only half of the DFW Big Game event; at 5 p.m., they'll start watching the big game with local celebs like Jason Witten, Randy White and Drew Pearson. Much more information, and a link to get your tickets can be found on their official site.
