Here’s the thing: We’d never knock the Peninsula (it’s our home) but we have to admit, getting into a beach bar on Super Bowl Sunday is harder than finding street parking on the Fourth of July.
If you’re looking to have a stress-free game-watching experience, The Triangle is an excellent option, just far enough from the crowds of Balboa Peninsula but close enough so you can drive back down Newport Blvd. when the game is through and celebrate by the shore.
These are the Super Bowl specials happening this Sunday at The Triangle:
Tavern + Bowl
This popular bowling location offers 26 large screen TVs throughout the restaurant amid a boutique bowling alley experience. With a vast assortment of beer on tap, handcrafted cocktails and a menu of burgers, flatbreads and more tasty bites, it’s a fun football-watching spot if you want to bowl as you watch the Bowl.
For more information or to reserve a bowling lane, call Tavern+ Bowl at (949) 438-2320.
