The date is set, the teams are set, but there's one thing left. Where in the world (Fort Collins) is the best place to watch the big game?

Without further ado, here are the top five places to experience the Super Bowl, XL style.

This year's winner…Sportscaster's Bar & Grill.

"The pre-game party starts at noon," said Mike Gracey, a manager at Sportscasters.

Boasting 50 televisions, it's almost easy to overlook the 94 cent appetizers and beverages, but there will also be adult refreshment promotions and a visit from radio station 94.3 FM.

Coming in second place for the game is Jackson's All American Sports Grill.

"Pretty much everyone in the door will win a prize," said employee Amy Zollard. "We also have some bar tabs of $50 or $100 a month for a year to give away.

Rounding out the rest of the top five are Hooters, Sullivan's and C.B. & Potts.

But regardless of the occasion (and because mothers and faculty may read this one) it is always wise to maintain manners while out on the town. Never get too sauced, unless it hits the bib.
