Super Bowl 2013 | Where to watch Sunday's big game
If you haven't made plans for Super Bowl Sunday, check out some options below. Bars around town (and a casino in Indiana) are variously offering drink specials, raffles, buffets, big screens and huge screens. And if you're planning to spend Sunday morning in the comfort of your own home (or a friend's), scroll to the bottom for a few tasty take-out deals.
Quay Restaurant and Bar
During the game, Quay has a Super Bowl Platter, including lamb spare ribs, pork-belly sliders, and a mini Philly cheese steak sandwich for $19.95 and Goose Island Flights available for $15. At half time there will be a raffle to take $50 off of someone's bill and at the end of the game, a raffle for $100 off.
Wash your 50-cent wings down with the contents of a $15 Miller Lite bucket or $5 Jim Bean cocktails. Or go really big and order a game-day package to feed between 6 to 12 people. ($35–$125)
Horseshoe Hammond Casino
The Horseshoe Hammond Casino will be having a viewing party starting at 3:30pm. Anyone can enter The Venue (What? That's what it's called) to watch the game, but you can choose from two packages to guarantee yourself seating. For $15 you save yourself a seat along with an all-you-can-eat buffet. For $75 you can have the seat, buffet, and enjoy the open bar. The game will be watched on a 60-foot HD screen. You can purchase tickets at the casino or at ticketmaster.com. There will also be a Big Game Super Square Contest offering a chance to win $5,000.
The Irish American Heritage Center
In the Fifth Province Pub at the Irish American Heritage Center will be having a serving food from Harrington's Catering at their Super Bowl party. Domestic drafts, wine, and soda will also be available with the buffet. Tickets are $35 and get you a bonus raffle ticket along with your vittles.
Untitled has a Super Bowl package that includes an open buffet and bar for $50. Buffet items include oxtail chili, crispy duck wings, pork-belly nachos, and bbq beef sliders.

The Smoke Daddy
Smoke Daddy has a Gridiron Party Package which serves fifteen people and includes appetizers, sides and build-your-own sliders ($199). It comes with plates and serving utensils, and you can add sodas for $1 per can.
Chicago q has a special to-go menu for Sunday; the smoked, dry-rubbed wings and bacon-cheddar hush puppies are both $16.75 a dozen. Kobe brisket, pulled pork and ribs are also on the menu. Chicago q will also be broadcasting the game; if you purchase a signature bourbon flight ($18-$75) on Sunday, you'll receive a complimentary football-shaped truffle.
