This is it. It’s down to one game. Super Bowl LI takes place on Sunday, February 5th. So where are you going to watch the Falcons take on the Patriots?

Even if you really like your couch, the beery, brunch-y camaraderie of a pub full of roaring fans adds an undeniable thrill. Pub viewing also gives you the chance to debate the merits of Super Bowl commercials with a stranger.

Here are three places to watch Super Bowl LI in Kitsilano. Tell us where you’re going to watch by commenting below!

Local Public Eatery

2210 Cornwall Ave., 604-734-3589,

Local has a licensed tent on their huge patio with two 80″ TVs, two 55″ TVs, speakers, and a DJ. They’ll be doing a pig roast so you can add pulled pork to pretty much anything on the special menu that includes Chilli and Smokies for the day. They’ll have a bunch of Jerseys, gift cards, and an Xbox to give away as well. Tickets are $35 which includes a pulled pork sandwich and a Bud Light. They have a couple tables left under the tent, so get on the phone quick before they’re sold-out.

Manchester Pub

1941 West Broadway Ave, 604-568-6867,

Manchester’s party will be hosted by local comedian Sean Kaboom and includes a pig roast and the US television feed with American commercials.  They’ll be raising money for local AFL team the West Coast Saints with football squares and a 50-50 draw.

While Manchester is no longer taking reservations, they’re selling tickets at the pub in advance for $10 which include a beer and will have space for walk-ins.
