The San Francisco 49ers made it to the Super Bowl for the first time since 1994 and the city is ready to party. This Sunday, February 3, 2013 the city will be hoping with party goers wearing their red and gold, so expect crowds and some madness. The mess that happened after the Giants won the pennant is probably a good indication of what to expect on Sunday, so beware of drunken idiots.
If you are looking to hit the bars for the game, plan on getting there early. They will be crowded and owners will pay attention to max capacity limits. Last week for the championship game, Kezar Pub was at capacity even before the game started.
For those courageous souls willing to brave the crowds, check out these great bars for smoking Super Bowl deals.
