The time has come again for the Great American Holiday known as the Super Bowl. Come February 7th twill be a day full of hot dogs, bean dip, and beer. 'Tis a day where you can be completely and totally embroiled in a sport without moving anything but your thumb. This year there is an epic showdown between the Indianapolis Colts and the New Orleans Saints. If you want to know who to root for it's an American tradition to root for the underdog and in this case its definitely the Saints. Its their first time to the SuperBowl! Here at the Tortoise we will be showing the game in the Ballroom for your football education. That's right I said it football. But if you wanted to venture out in some sort of anthropological expedition to see what sports bars look like on this day of days I have a few that will be up to snuff.
The Boardroom ~ 1609 Powell Street @ Green. Great food, Great bartenders, and booze! What more could you hope for!
Giordano Bros ~ 303 Columbus Ave between Broadway St & Grant Ave Super close by, a usual favorite of the Tortoise staff because of the amazing sandwiches. The bar was, is, and always will be a great place to observe people observing sports.
Maggie McGarry's ~ 1353 Grant Ave between Green St & Vallejo St We always send people here for games during the year I can only imagining the epic scene that will ensue during the biggest football game of the year.
