Ready or not, New York City is going to be invaded by the Super Bowl, cold weather and congestion be damned. With the city expecting over 200,000 additional people flooding into the city over the weekend, you’ll want to head to quality places NYC locals love, that won’t be packed with people (M&Ms experience in Times Square and McSorrely’s Ale House, we’re looking at you).

We’ve compiled the best places to eat, drink, socialize, stock up on tailgating supplies and relax during the crazy weekend. Every location is accessible by public transportation (thanks go to the MTA for providing a layered map file!) and offers the best New York City has to offer.

Welcome to Super Bowl XLVIII. We already need a drink!
