Fans Battle it out for Super Bowl Space

January 31, 2014

No matter what teams make it to the Super Bowl, there are Washington bars that cater to their fans. On Sunday, Denver Broncos fans will head to Penn Quarter Sports Tavern, as they do throughout the regular season, while Seattle Seahawks fans plan to watch the game at their usual haunt — which also happens to be Penn Quarter Sports Tavern. Two rabid groups, both of which want to take over the already-cramped space. Making this situation even more complicated: The two-level bar on Indiana Avenue NW has counted both teams among its key groups for years — since long before Peyton Manning arrived in Denver or Marshawn Lynch went into “Beast Mode” in Seattle. “As long as this place has been around, they’ve been around,” says Penn Quarter Sports Tavern owner Mike Brand. “It’s been really great to watch both [fanbases] grow year after year. . . . The last few weeks have been really tough.” (Post)
