Where to Watch the Broncos (W)in the Super Bowl in Denver

by Carrie Dow on Feb 2, 2016 in Roundups

The biggest of American sporting events is finally here, and in Denver, it’s offically a holiday. Super Bowl Sunday is upon us, and this year the Denver Broncos will face the Carolina Panthers in the big game. What will happen when Old School Peyton Manning meets New School Cam Newton? Game time is 4:30 PM MST, but for most of these Super Bowl parties, you might want to get there early to snag the best seats. May the best team (Broncos) win!

Not interested in the biggest football game of the year? Then check this out…

Don’t care one little bit about football? Then get away from all the hype to Duo for the Non-Football Super Bowl Dinner. The evening features a three-course meal and there won’t be a single slider or buffalo wing in sight. There are no televisions here either so this is truly a football free zone. Cost is $50 per couple (because it’s the 50th Super Bowl). Wine and beer are extra, and there will be a special gameday cocktail for an additional cost. (2413 W 32nd Ave.; 303-477-4141)
