Despite the fact that we’ve been seeing a lot of the New England Patriots in Superbowls lately, it’s important that America, as a collective, gather ‘round this Sunday for the Superbowl commercials.

Oh. And the game. That, too. (As far as I’m concerned, the Philadelphia Eagles have more than just a fighting chance.)

3 Big Viewing Parties

There are three big Superbowl Parties and one Superbowl After Party planned this weekend in Laguna Beach. Superbowl kickoff time is 3:30 p.m., but doors open at all three locations early. (Please don’t be a squatter who saves 15 seats and only drinks water till game time. The crowd will boo you.)

Mozambique-afterparty-superbowl1 Big After Party
Whether your team wins or loses, Mozambique will be ready to celebrate or commiserate with you at its big Superbowl After Party beginning at 7:30 p.m.
They’ve brought in team favorite (and true Jamaican born) Errol Bonnick for a rousing evening of Reggae with full dinner menu, specialty cocktails and plenty of healthy salads to offset any liquor you may have consumed during the day.

Get out and enjoy the Superbowl with your fellow Americans. It’s our filial duty, folks. (And please use Uber.)
