L.A. might not have an NFL football team of their own, but that’s not stopping some city watering holes from getting in on this Sunday’s Super Bowl action. This year’s contest between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos (Go Hawks!) will be the main attraction on the flat screens at bars and restaurants city-wide. The L.A. Times reports that Atwater’s private event space Chloe’s at Golden Road Brewing will be broadcasting the event on its 120-inch big screen to be exact, and offering the pub menu and an array of GRB brews to go with it. Echo Park’s Mohawk Bend too, says the paper, is enticing patrons with an irresistible bottomless pizza deal. $30 at the locally-sourced eatery will get you more pizza than you can shake a football at.

In other Shopper & Diner news:

  • More deals are to be had pre-Super Bowl in Eagle Rock at Little Beast. Eater LA notes that through Saturday you can get half off small plates (excluding daily specials) at this progressive comfort food purveyor, with select wines and beers at $5 and $4, respectively.

  • You may have noticed Silver Lake breakfast mainstay Millie’s Cafe was closed for a short time last week. Echo Park-Silver Lake Patch reports that an undetermined infestation and other minor violations had the restaurant closing its doors for the day on January 21.

  1. It’s been confirmed that The Short Stop of Echo Park is having a Super Bowl Party. Doors open at 3pm. drink specials, free food. should be good.

  2. Is there a part of Los Angeles that could care less about the Super Bowl than Northeast LA?

    • Do Ya think? Football sucks! And by the way what a dump Mohawk Bend is. Greasy fish and chips!

      • I’m not a fan of the food there, but I gotta say the drinks are excellent (and all from within California!)

        Mohawk Bend has been lackluster since the day it opened. Bland, uninspired and plain yucky food marred by equally painful and ruse service. Yes, I love their beer selection — but it just isn’t worth the headache. I was so excited for them to open way back when, and have given them multiple chances to change my opinion since then. It only takes a few visits where I’ve had to send food back (something I’ve NEVER done elsewhere) and an entire meal ruined by the arrival of a party bus full of jerks from Glendale to make you never want to go there again.
