Sure, we New Jerseyans may not really care too much about the Super Bowl this year with the opponents being the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers. However, it is Super Bowl 50—that's a big milestone! Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Super Bowl Sunday in style at these North Jersey sports bars with your fellow football fans.
Wicked Wolf Tavern
This Hoboken sports bar promises to bring one of the best Super Bowl parties Jersey has to offer.
Beginning at 11am, DJs will be spinning throwback tunes and $4 Coors Light Drafts and $20 Coors Light buckets and towers will be available until close (2am). Table reservations are available. 120 Sinatra Dr., Hoboken
Black Bear Bar
Another Hoboken spot, Black Bear Bar, will be serving up $4 Blue Moon pints, $6 Jacks, $6 Manmosas, and $11.99 Coors Light Pitchers for their Super Bowl party. The first 100 people in get to choose a box to win a variety of cool raffle prizes such as a signed Victor Cruz helmet and a 40-inch HDTV. 205 Washington St., Hoboken
Miami Mike's Sports Zone
A sports fan's mecca, Miami Mike's is hosting an epic Super Bowl Tailgate Party from 3-6pm on Super Bowl Sunday, complete with a masseuse and tarot card reader. Yep, you read that right! The Hot Dog Eating Contest begins at 5:30, followed promptly by the Wing Eating Contest at 5:45. There will be over 200 giveaways, a photo booth, and drink specials.
Don't miss this one! 130 Rt. 10, East Hanover
$19.99 will get you access to an all-you-can-eat buffet at The Exchange that includes wings, a taco bar, hot dogs, chili, sliders, penne vodka, fries, salad, and more. Combine that with $2 Bud and Bud Light drafts, shot specials, giveaways, and yes, a cornhole competition and you've got a winning Super Bowl party.
160 E. Main St., Rockaway
CBS rated Sharky's one of the top NJ sports bars for Super Bowl viewing, and we'd have to agree. Now with two locations, one in Clifton (Sharky's East) and the other in Boonton (Sharky's West), the Sunday Special is the perfect companion to your football viewing: domestic 16 oz. drafts for $2.50 (West) and $2.00 16 oz. Coors & Coors Light drafts (East). Sharky's is famous for its wings: the ultimate Super Bowl food. There's a sauce for every wing-lover: mild, medium, and hot of course, plus extra hot, fire, hell, honey mustard, pepper corn, and Maryland, just to name a few. 545 Highland Ave., Cliffton; 108 Boonton Ave., Boonton
