Huddle up: It’s time to figure out your Super Bowl plans. For the first time since 1993, L.A. will host one of the most widely watched American TV broadcasts of the year at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood. But unless you plan on dropping hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on tickets, you’ll probably still be watching the Super Bowl on a TV this year. A few simple FAQs:

When is Super Bowl LVI?

Sunday, February 13, 2022.

What time does the Super Bowl start?

Kickoff is at 3:30pm PST.

What teams are playing in the Super Bowl?

The Los Angeles Rams vs. the Cinncinnati Bengals. 

Throwing a party at home, or heading to a sports bar—something you couldn’t do last year? If it’s the former, you could hit up Costco and buy 400 frozen wings, but you and your friends and family deserve better. If it’s the latter, L.A.’s best sports bars< and many of the city’s restaurants< have you covered, with plenty of outdoor seating.

In either case, check out our roundup of our favorite game day takeout packages around L.A. and a handful of places we think are the best spots to head to and watch the game. Some are restaurants with expansive patios, some are tried-and-true sports bars and some simply make some of the best chicken wings in the city, but all will be offering grub to hold you over during the Super Bowl. Ready? Go!
