If you are going to be in San Francisco on Sunday, chances are you will run into far more Denver Broncos fans than are usually in town. These won’t necessarily be people from Colorado, but rather native San Franciscans who are rooting for the Broncos because the 49ers were denied their chance at playing in the Super Bowl by the Seattle Seahawks. No matter who you are rooting for, there are a ton of swell spots in San Fran to watch Super Bowl XLVIII and a multitude of San Francisco Attractions to check out as well.
For a fun, family experience, head to the Taco Shop at Underdogs at 1824 Irving Street. A combination of a taqueria and sports bar, the Taco Shop will be serving up delicious specials and showing the game on 10 plasma TV’s on Super Sunday. And don’t worry about eating your food and then feeling like you should leave at halftime. According to chef Nick Fasanella: “Here at The Taco Shop we are committed to using the finest ingredients available. Whenever possible, the food is sourced from local and organic family run farms and ranches. As a professional chef, I believe it is your right to be able to eat slow food fast.”

Another option is to head to one of the more intense sports bars in town, The Mad Dog in the Fog at 530 Haight Street. Snack on appealing appetizers like garlic fries, guacamole & chips, beer-battered onion rings and corn dogs. The bar offers over 150 different beers from around the world and multiple televisions that are always tuned to football, European soccer and rugby matches. On Super Sunday, it’s a safe bet they’ll only be showing one game…
There’s also the Blackthorn Tavern at 834 Irving Street. Although Blackthorn’s is a nightly hangout spot for some people because of its plethora of pool tables, Sunday is when it truly shines. At Blackthorns, “Sunday morning means football, it also means you need to start off your Saturday night recovery. We specialize in curing all that ails you.” Their Blood Marys offer “unique ingredients cuz we try to do things a little different here and a little better we think.” They might not be strong enough to dull the pain from the 49ers loss, but they’ll probably do the trick if you need help cheering for the Broncos (or even the Seahawks).
