Super Bowl 51 is Sunday, and for the first time in nearly 20 years, Atlantans have a rooting interest. That's right, Vic Beasley, Julio Jones, Matt Ryan, and the rest of our beloved Falcons are headed to Houston to square off against the hated New England Patriots. A win would give Atlanta its first Super Bowl title — and its first major sports title of any kind since the Braves won the World Series way back in 1995. History hasn't been kind to local sports fans, but this team might be as good as any to come out of the ATL.
There's no reason to stay holed up at home when you could be out celebrating what might be this city's first major championship since the mid-90s. Sports bars abound in Atlanta, and if you plan on hitting the town this Sunday, these 14 bars and restaurants, mapped north to south, will have plenty of food, booze, and big screens to cover all the bases.
