As of press time, it doesn’t appear that either of our local teams will be playing this January. But since many Bay Area residents are from elsewhere, many of us are (or know others who are) rooting for old hometown teams! With the biggest game of the football season being played here (in Santa Clara, that is), football fever will still be abundant in the Bay Area. Super Bowl City, the host committee’s free-to-the-public fan village, will be celebrating the milestone big game at the Embarcadero and Market Street January 30– February 7. The NFL Experience, a pro football “theme park,” will take place during this same time at the Moscone Center. Hopefully, next year we will be cheering on the Raiders or the 49ers in January, but we’re still celebrating this year and showing the world how a world-class city like San Francisco hosts a worldclass party. Join us at our downtown Fourth Street location on Thursday, February 4, for our Football Fever Happy Hour with a hometown Thirsty Bear brew!
In the meantime, enjoy the football-inspired favorites that we’ve gathered for you as you celebrate your own hometown (or someone else’s) team! We can all celebrate—or at least watch—the big game!
