Super Bowl Sunday: Find a Snack, Stump Your Friends in Sewickley

Yeah, yeah, we know — no black and gold in the Dome this year. So amuse yourself instead by finding good stuff to nosh on and stumping your friends in between big plays.

So the Pittsburgh Steelers are staying home.

So you're sick of hearing about those Harbaugh brothers.

So you're cold, you're tired of being cold and you don't feel like doing much that involves venturing out in the cold.

Still, that big game scheduled for Sunday IS the Super Bowl, after all, and it's being played in one of the coolest U.S. cities. Should you find yourself getting into the mood to at least watch the contest between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, you're going to need some refreshments.

Sewickley Patch brings you five suggestions for spots around town that are offering a gathering place to watch the game plus specials on items to nosh on throughout.

Sunny Jim's Tavern

● If you plan to watch the Super Bowl at Sunny Jim's, 255 Camp Horne Road, get your seat early and watch the Pens game then stick around for football. A free half time buffet will be served. 

Pizza Roma
