Cambridge Weekend Guide: Super Bowl

Where to go, eat and cheer on the Patriots this weekend

Here in Cambridge, there’s only one thing on sports fan’s minds this weekend…you guessed it, the Super Bowl. The New England Patriots are headed back to the Super Bowl on Sunday in search of their sixth Super Bowl victory on February 4, where they’ll take on the Philadelphia Eagles.

If you still haven’t nailed down your Super Bowl plans, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.  Read on to see our recommendations for parties and the best places to order take-out this weekend:


Some Like it Hot Chili Cook-Off | February 3

Although this festival, doesn’t actually take place on the day of the Super Bowl, we thought this event was the perfect way to get excited for Sunday. 

Head into Harvard Square for free (yes, free!) samples of delicious, piping hot chili!  At this winter festival, participating restaurants will be serving their favorite chili recipes.  After you’ve tried them all, vote for your favorite.

Try it: 1-2:30p

Craigie's Swanky Super Bowl Party Package on Main | Take Out

What would Super Bowl weekend be without one of Chef Maws’ roasted Pig Heads?  Simply place your order at Craigie on Main and impress your guests with a fancy dinner (all of the fixin’s included) fit for a quarterback.

Super Bowl Extravaganza at The Smoke Shop | Party

The Smoke Shop is having a massive Super Bowl party and you’re invited.  They’ve got all the right ingredients to cook up the ultimate party including a BBQ buffet, massive televisions throughout the restaurant and delicious craft cocktails. After all, BBQ and football go together like Tom Brady and Super Bowl rings.

Make your reservations here.

Second Annual Super Bowl Party at Naco Taco | Go Out

It’s always a fiesta at Central Square’s Naco Taco, but throw in the hometown team at the Super Bowl and you’re guaranteed to have a great time. 

Simply reserve your seats (there are no bad seats in the house) and settle in for the game.  Snack on sliders, build your own taco, burgers, chips and dips and more at the all-you-can-eat buffet.

Area Four | Take Out

Pizza is always a crowd pleaser and if an entire football team is coming over to your house on Sunday, ordering out from Area Four in Kendall Square is definitely the way to go.  They’ve got it all at Area Four - including pizza, garlic knots, and chicken wings. What more could you need?

Cambridge Common | Take Out & Party

This Sunday, you can have your cake and eat it too at Cambridge Common in Porter Square.  Stop by the friendly and all around comfortable restaurant to watch and cheer on the game with staff and locals or order anything to go off of their menu- including their supersized 24 or 48 piece wing platter!
