TWIN FALL • Sober? Thirsty? Hungry? No matter how you choose to watch, this year’s Super Bowl is expected to attract a crowd.

Today, the Baltimore Ravens will face the San Francisco 49ers in New Orleans’ Superdome for Super Bowl XLVII.

While the first priority may be determining which team to root for, it can be just as important finding the right place to watch the game.

For those looking for a low-key environment, the Magic Valley Fellowship Hall will host a “Sober Super Bowl Party.”

Anyone is invited to swing by, said Ron Riebold, the fellowship hall’s manager. If you do stop by, bringing a snack food is encouraged but not required.

“We provide a sober and clean place to watch football,” Riebold said. “It’s a chance to get together and have some fellowship without the use of drugs or alcohol. We have lots of food.”

For those looking to go somewhere other than a usual watering hole, Magic Valley Cinema 13 is setting aside its largest screen to show the game, said Robert Maltby, a manager at the Twin Falls movie theater.

“It’s 55 feet long,” he said. “It’s one of the largest in town.”

The catch is that the viewing party is only for people over the age of 21 and there is a $10 spending minimum, Maltby said.

“It’s going to be a fun time,” he said.

Wherever people choose to watch the game — whether at a bar, church or home — Riebold has a message for you: “Have a good time but stay safe.”
