If you won’t be in Atlanta, on your couch or on someone else’s couch this Sunday, Feb. 3, you can watch Super Bowl LIII at one of the D.C-area taverns throwing a party (see below). Kickoff time, after Gladys Knight sings “The Star-Spangled Banner,” is 6:30 p.m. The halftime show will feature Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi. Go Pats … I mean, Rams!
