The news is terrible, and even those of us who once loved the escapism of sports have had to come around to the fact that football is also terrible. What are you to do on Super Bowl Sunday when your friends will be gathering to watch Donald Trump’s favorite quarterback take on the team from John Lewis’s district? That’s a fairly compelling reason to watch the game actually, but if it’s not your thing, don’t worry: Prospect Heights bar Saint Catherine will again be streaming the ultimate comfort television: the Puppy Bowl.

The bar will be showing the adorable-a-thon all afternoon on its two big screens, with drink specials starting at happy hour. It’s a good time to get blackout drunk while staring at puppies living their carefree puppy life, which you should enjoy while you can before Trump outlaws puppies next year. UPDATE: South 4th Bar in Williamsburg is also showing the Puppy Bowl before the Super Bowl.

The Puppy Bowl starts at 3pm; after brunch ends at 4pm, the bar moves right into happy hour (until 8pm) featuring $2 off well liquor, draft beers and house wine). The bar will be showing the Super Bowl too, which starts at 6:30.

The Saint Catherine is located at 660 Washington Ave. in Prospect Heights.
