If you are a fan of mimosas and breakfast burritos like me, you’ll love The Montauk. The beachy vibes, live music and amazing brunch (weekends until 3 p.m.) make for a great way to kick-start your game-day buzz.

Tacos, Brussels sprout nachos (I know, but trust me, they’ll have you coming back for more) and snow cone margaritas…need I say more?

My favorite type of garden is a beer garden. With 28 craft beers on tap, giant pretzels, life-size Jenga and a (dog-friendly) patio, Brat Haus is the beer garden to hang out at before (or after) the game.

If you are looking for a party atmosphere at any time of the day, look no further! Queen of Scottsdale’s Sunday Funday experience, RnR, has become the daytime party spot for the bottomless cocktail aficionados. On weekends, you can cash in on bottomless mimosas and bloody mary's, while enjoying a live DJ in a high-energy atmosphere.

¡Ay Dios mío! (Oh my goodness!) Salty’s in Old Town Scottsdale has everything I need in just one spot. Indulge in chips and guacamole, have some margaritas and churros all while enjoying the sweet sunshine on the outdoor patio. Honestly, what more do you need?

Looking for a bar-hopping destination that’s guaranteed to take you and your friends for a wild ride? Head for Scottsdale’s Entertainment District – two square blocks of the city’s hottest nightclubs that are known for live music, celebrity DJs, innovative cocktails and a see-and-be-seen crowd. Some of my personal favorites are Bevvy, Bottled Blonde, The District and Dierks Bentley's Whiskey Row!
