Skip the preparation and cleanup involved with hosting a Super Bowl bash at home on Sunday and let Bull Nettle Sports Bar or Newton’s Saddlerack do it for you.


Bull Nettle’s Super Bowl Watch Party officially kicks off when the game does at 5:30 p.m., but feel free to arrive when the doors open at 2.

Happy hour specials will be available all day with domestic beer buckets for $25 and import beer buckets for $30.


Owner Court Cole told Beneath the Surface News that Bull Nettle is providing pulled pork sandwiches and you’re invited to bring a side dish.

Did I mention that Bull Nettle will also be giving away a pair of Dallas Cowboys tickets to one lucky attendee?


Because they are.

WATCH PARTY AT NEWTON’S SADDLERACK


Enjoy watching the Bengals take on the Rams from the elegant comfort of Newton’s Saddlerack.


The new bar/lounge is located next to Newton’s Cellar on the downtown square in Stephenville.


Melanie Newton said the bar will open at 5 p.m. and offer a special menu that includes beef tenderloin chili (my favorite!), chili dogs and hamburgers.


"We will also have Super Bowl squares going and drink specials," she said.

DID SOMEONE MENTION DR. DRE?


I’m not a big fan of football, but I am a child of the 80s so I’m super excited that Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem and Mary J. Blige are headlining Sunday’s half-time show.


Oh, Kendrick Lamar is performing too, but I don’t know much about him and Grammy-nominated country singer Mickey Guyton will sing the national anthem.
