On Sunday, the San Francisco 49ers will face the Baltimore Ravens in the most hotly anticipated match-up in the f̶o̶o̶t̶b̶a̶l̶l̶-̶l̶o̶v̶i̶n̶g̶, s̶p̶o̶r̶t̶s̶ world.
Cinematically brilliant commercials will air. Beyonce will sing or maybe not. Fully-grown men will don too-small jerseys and every so often, a football will be thrown.
But most importantly, we will eat.
Here are some local choices for your sports-themed smorgasbord.
424 Church Ave.
The new Church Avenue eatery will cater your football fiesta with a bevy of hearty appetizers. Choose between hot wings, empanadas, chips and guacamole, fried calamari or flautas, or just order them all, because the Super Bowl cometh but once a year and obviously you'll go to the gym tomorrow, you guys.
Order one or all of the above by calling (718) 941-0185.

The bar will be screening the game, and will serve smoked beef, pork, chicken and sides during halftime. Limited tickets available in advance at the bar or on the bar's website. Call (347) 240-5850 for more information.
