It's that time of year again, sports fans! The Super Bowl is coming up this Sunday, February 2 and you're probably becoming really aware of which of your friends has the best living room setups. Because we're millennials and the answer is "none of us," it might be best to look outside of the friend group for the perfect Vancouver Super Bowl party that can accommodate you and your crew. Luckily, that party exists at the Rio Theatre and, even better, it's free.
The free screening and party will include trivia, prizes, and of course, football. Because there are drinks to be had, you must be 19 or older to sit on the main floor.
Minors are allowed on the balcony. Doors will open at 3 p.m. and kickoff will go down half an hour later.
“Come early to get yourself a great seat, drinks, grilled cheese sammies and all the stats with televised pre-show commentary,” reads the event description and honestly, grilled cheese sammies and drinks are all we can ask for and more.
If you haven't been to the iconic Rio Theatre, we can't think of a better opportunity.
The Rio has been going strong on Broadway since 1938. The beloved East Vancouver hot-spot is independent and brings in multidisciplinary entertainment unlike anywhere else in the city.
A great place to watch movies, music, and football.
This year's event will be taking place in Miami and even if we could afford to fly to Miami we definitely couldn't afford Super Bowl tickets. So, this is the next best thing and you don't even have to leave the city to see it.
The half time show this year is going to be absolutely legendary as it will feature performances by Shakira and Jennifer Lopez.
The two icons have never shared a stage before and we think it's about time. Facing off in the football game will be the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs.
Whether you're there for the football, half time show, commercials, beer, or all of the above, it's going to be a memorable afternoon in Vancity.
Forget about the stress of hosting and plan for a fun and different afternoon out at the Rio.
If you've got an S/O who loves football, this could make for a really adorable date idea. If you're just looking for indoor activities in the city, this will check that box, too.
