There’s only one day of the year that all Americans gather round to share a meal and memories: Super Bowl Sunday.
The stakes couldn’t be higher with Super Bowl 50 considering this will likely being quarterback Peyton Manning’s final appearance on the gridiron and the Panthers kicking so much ass they have time to take selfies on the sideline.
Since Orlando doesn’t, and probably never will have an NFL team, the bars and restaurants around town have amped up the football viewing experience just for you. Here are the best Super Bowl parties happening around Orlando:
Super Block Party
Watch a life-size Cam Newton on Wall Street Plaza’s gigantic 16-foot LED TV while you enjoy drink specials like $7 Coors Lite pitcher or $4 Fireball. If you get tired of winning free drinks and prizes during each quarter (how could you?), then hop into one of Wall Street’s seven bars for more adventures and of course football.
4 p.m. | Wall Street Plaza, 26 Wall St. | wallstreetplaza.net
Super Bowl Party at Teak
Plant your ass in a booth and feast on $1 wings as the top two teams in the NFL face off in a battle for the ages. Wash down those fiery wings with a 20-ounce Bud Light for $3 and throw your name in the hat for a raffle prize.

Ten10 Football Party Time
Nothing pleases a football fan more than wings, nachos and beer. It’s even better when the food comes from Smiling Bison. Enter their raffle for a chance to win tickets to the Old Florida Outdoor Festival or indulge in the donuts and beer pairings they’ve become known for.

Hey all of you in the suburbs looking to get turnt! Barrels of beer await you at World of Beer Altamonte Springs. Take a dip in a $4 Sweetwater draft or chomp your way to the finish line of a tasty burger for $5. Did we mention they’ve got brats and wings en masse, too?

What’s better than $1 wings? 50 cent wings, naturally. Our friends at Sanford’s West End Trading Co. have a whole flock of delicious wings ready to fill you up. Get sloshed on some Bud Light drafts from 4-5 p.m. then catch the game on one of their nine HD screens.
