Dear Bears fans and other sports fans whose team’s not playing for the Lombardi trophy this year, take heart, maybe next year. Until then, lets talk about your plans for watching and taking in Super Bowl LIV if you can’t be in sunny Miami. The good thing is you don’t have to spend all that money for airfare, tickets, outfits, stadium food and drinks but if you still want to have that game day feels, we’ve found a few bars and restaurants in Chicago that will show the game and feed you and your party so all you have to worry about it what to wear, extensively discuss which brand nailed the Super Bowl commercials and what excuse you’re going to use to call off work the following day.
