Dip it good: Super Bowl Sunday (Feb. 5) is just around the corner, which means it’s a good time to figure out where to watch the big game! Here’s two downtown SLO spots that will fill with chanting, cheering, and jeering: Woodstock’s Pizza opens at 10 a.m. and will be serving hot and sizzling pizza, wings, and happy hour drinks throughout the day … Eureka! is also offering up scores on grub, too. Grab a choice of one of the many brews on their long and illustrious beer list and an order of their signature Eureka! wings for a ten spot (1 to 5 p.m.). That means you can lose even more money betting on your favorite team!
