Super Bowl XLVIII (we don’t even know what number that is) is a week from today! Go Broncos!
Do you know where you’ll be watching the Big Game? If you’ll be in town on Sunday, Feb. 2 and are looking for a place to hang with fellow fans, here are some Super Bowl parties in Durango where you can cheer on the Broncos — or the Seahawks, if you’re willing to take that risk in Southwest Colorado. (Legal disclaimer: We do not recommend cheering on the Seahawks in Southwest Colorado.)
Watch the Big Game on the big screen at Paradise Pizzeria & Ice Creamery at Durango Mountain Resort. Paradise is hosting a game day buffet that includes pizza and salad buffets, and all sorts of Super Bowl appetizers, such as artichoke dip, queso dip, breadsticks, chips and salsa, and oven-baked chicken wings served with blue cheese and Honeyville chokecherry chipotle dipping sauce. There’s also unlimited (non-alcoholic) drinks and, for dessert, hit up the s’mores bar. There will also be full-service bar and beer specials, including $3 Bud Lights and $10 Bud Light pitchers.
The buffet-slash-watching party is $30 for adults and $15 for kids 12 and younger. The price includes appetizers, dinner, dessert, non-alcoholic drinks, tax and gratuity. Reservations are required by Wednesday, Jan. 29, so call 970-426-7298 to make yours today.
What better way to wrap up another crazy week of Snowdown activities than with a Snowdown Super Bowl party? Watch the Broncos win, ahem, watch the game and toss back a drink with your family and friends. The shindig kicks off 3:30 p.m. Sunday at Bent Urban Sports Bar, 42 County Road 250, Suite #400, at the Ptarmigan Center in Durango. Don your favorite sports gear, paint your face and put on your best “tailgating attitude” for the Snowdown Super Bowl party because there will be prizes for the Best Super Bowl celebration gear. The event is free.
For a family friendly good time, hit up the giant Super Bowl party at Durango Christian Church. DCC will have the game on one of its 60-inch screens with a “sound system that will rival anything you’ve experienced before!” according to the church’s website. DCC will also have activities for the entire family, including video games, card games, and board games as well as space for people who want to bring arts or crafts projects to work on during the Super Bowl festivities. DCC will also be showing movies on the big BIG screens in the church’s worship center. Fans can buy their favorite game-day treats at a concession stand that benefits the church’s youth group. DCC’s events kick off at 4 p.m. Sunday — just in time for the Super Bowl kickoff at 4:30 p.m.!
