Where to watch the Super Bowl in Richmond

This year's Super Bowl is shaping up to be for the history books.

What's happening: Surveys indicate Super Bowl LVIII could be the most-watched in history. Sports betting will likely smash records, and beauty and health food brands are snapping ad spots at unprecedented rates.

  • It's all thanks in large part to Taylor Swift, whose BF apparently plays football.

Why it matters: Taylor Swift's boyfriend's team, the Kansas City Chiefs, takes on the San Francisco 49ers at 6:30pm Sunday.

And in celebration of Swiftie Bowl (and the traditional Super Bowl), we rounded up some of the coolest local watch parties popping off this weekend:

🌮 Cabo Fish Taco in Scott's Addition will have all-you-can-eat appetizers, plus a taco bar and happy hour drink specials.

  • The party is from 6-11pm and $20 (advance tickets) gets you access to the buffet.

🍻 Rams House in the Fan has the pre-game party you won't want to miss: an inaugural annual beer pong tournament.

  • The tourney starts at 4pm (with a gift card prize to the winner) and the game will be on after. Players get a round of pilsner for free. DM them to sign up.

🍏 Buskey Cider in Scott's Addition is going all-in on Taylor Swift with a Swiftie Bowl Party.

  • There will be Swiftie-named ciders, a Taylor costume, friendship bracelet making and a Swift-themed photo stand. Oh yeah, and there'll also be some sportsball up on a projector screen. 6:30pm. Free.

ğŸŽ³ River City Roll will have the game on the big screen, plus $10 pitchers or $20 with a pizza.

If you're looking to stay home, The Veil has us late planners covered with pre-orders that we're still open as of press time:

  • The Chicken Party from Nokoribi (inside The Veil Scott's Addition): $55 gets you four spicy drums; six Togarashi-spiced wings and a pound of Karaage chicken nuggets, plus sides.
  • Meanwhile, Yu Tu Mama in its Forest Hill brewery is still accepting orders for nachos, chips and quesadilla platters ($30-$100).
