It's once again time to make your Super Bowl Sunday plans, with Super Bowl LI right around the corner on February 5.
Since the Steelers fell short of the big game, you probably won't have as many parties to choose from as you were hoping for, and hosting your own is a lot of work. That's why we suggest watching the game at one of these great spots—just as much fun without any of the effort!

On August 2, Barrel 21 reopened after a two week hiatus and came back with a new menu and new chef. Already fairly new on the scene (Barrel 21, located just in front of Otto's Pub and Brewery, originally opened just over a year ago), the restaurant is changing a few things to make their dining experience shine and their drinking experience as amazing as dining at a distillery can be.
