Seahawks spurring sell-outs

Super Bowl parties expected to be full at Parksville Qualicum Beach pubs and restaurants

The 48th Super Bowl will take place in East Rutherford, New Jersey and will be a battle between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks. With a good chunk of Seahawks fans in the area, there will be plenty of cheering on the “home team” in Parksville Qualicum Beach.

If you’re looking for a place to catch the action, we’ve found a few spots that will have all sorts of entertainment to go along with the game on Sunday (3:30 p.m. kick-off).

Tickets are just about sold out at both the Rod & Gun and The French Creek Marine Pub. Each venue has been hot spots for the Super Bowl over the last decade and will be once again this year.

A $10 ticket gets you into the Rod & Gun, where a “Tail Gate Buffet” and a half-time hot dog eating contest are scheduled. There are big prizes up for grabs too, including a trip to Las Vegas, a 50-inch TV, jerseys and much more.

The French Creek Pub will be sold out once again, as it has been for most of the 20 years of hosting a Super Bowl event. There will be a field goal kicking contest at half time and a reverse draw will take place as well, with the chance to win a ton of great prizes.

Some of the other local establishments featuring the battle for bragging rights in the NFL are Tigh-Na-Mara, Boston Pizza, the Upper Deck, the Shady Rest. While most places showing the Super Bowl will be a 19 or older crowd, Boston Pizza will have the atmosphere you’re looking for if you want to bring out the whole family.

Boston Pizza will be busy all weekend as their hosting a UFC pay per view the night before Super Bowl. They will have the game on all their big screens and have some good prizes as well. Lots of specials will be on the menu for the whole family to enjoy.

Both the Upper Deck and Shady Rest will be hosting events as well, with no cover charge to get inside to boot. The Upper Deck will have a Super Bowl 48 Jacket, some NFL gear and lots of other prizes to give away. The Shady Rest will have the Super Bowl fix for those in the Qualicum Beach area with their big screens too. Door prizes are up for grabs there too and they will also have some food and drink specials going on that Sunday.
