Super Bowl LII goes down on Sunday, February 4th at 6:30PM between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots. Depending on which team you claim, the most pressing matter is where you should watch the big game. Here’s a rundown of Washington bars that cater to Pats or Birds fans, whether you’re looking for a free Yeungling giveaway or complimentary Sam Adams open bar (yes, gratis beer exists for both teams).

Eagles Fans:

Ventnor Sports Cafe

2411 18th St., NW

Philadelphia native Scott Auslander has owned this Adams Morgan pub for 13 years, and his Super Bowl party will feature cheesesteaks, crab fries, and Yuengling giveaways to attract even more Eagles fans than usual. His mother even plans to ship soft pretzels to the bar for good measure. Ventnor typically takes reservations, but none will be necessary for the big game. Show up early for a good seat.

DC Tap House

1825 M St., NW

Previously named Sign of the Whale, this Dupont Circle spot is known to be packed with Birds fans despite the “DC” label above the door. General admission starts at 6:30PM, unless you purchase a $5 ticket that guarantees early entry into the bar at 5:30 PM and standing room views of the TVs. Passes are also available for tables and booths ($100 to $300).
