Let the game-day countdown begin! It’s never too soon to make Super Bowl plans, and this year’s match-up between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles calls for good grub. Whether you’re looking for a rowdy watch party at your favorite bar or a savory spread to enjoy from home, we’ve rounded up some great food and drink options:

Courthaus Social

Find both carry-out and “in-haus” specials at this sports bar and beer garden in Courthouse. Patrons who stay to watch the game in-person can take advantage of $1 wing specials and $1 off all draft beers. But if you’d prefer to tune in from your couch, pick up buy-one-get-one wings (minimum order of six) and draft beer to go—crowlers are $2 off, while growlers are $5 less than the standard price. // 2300 Clarendon Blvd., Arlington (Courthouse)

Drinks are an additional cost. Oh, and did we mention they’ve got an 18-foot “video wall”? // 529 23rd St. S., Arlington (National Landing)
