As for the beer, football fans can enjoy 30 craft beers on tap here.
Sammy's Woodfired Pizza & Grill
This pizza spot in La Jolla (702 Pearl St.) – which reopened earlier this month after a September 2015 fire shuttered it for more than a year – certainly has reason to celebrate on Sunday. Sammy’s has launched four new pizzas in time for Super Bowl 51 including the $12.75 Roast Crimini & Shitake pizza topped with sun-dried tomatoes, kale, tomato sauce and scallions. Also new on the menu: Artichoke Pizza; The Sicilia; The Tuscan.

Both Social Tap Eatery locations – East Village (at 815 J St. #101) and College Area (4800 Art St.) – will air Super Bowl 51 across huge TVs and serve Happy Hour specials at the indoor-outdoor bar including perfect game day food like chicken wings. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. the eatery will have a DJ on deck, too. The patios at both locations are dog-friendly, so bring your pooch to the football fiesta.
