Los Angeles is a mecca for sports fans, from icons like the LA Memorial Coliseum and Dodger Stadium to the state-of-the-art SoFi Stadium and BMO Stadium. Restaurants and bars across the city are ready to serve fans, whether it's takeout for tailgating, massive screens and drink specials, or postgame bites. And for the competitive types, there are food challenges that will test even the heartiest appetites.

Day 1

From dining near world-class venues to lively bars, Downtown LA is the place to be. LeBron James owns 19 Blaze Pizza franchises (and counting) - the USC location is perfect for Trojans or LAFC game day. At Tom's Watch Bar, experience 360° of sports games, including the massive "Megatron" screen - it's 13' high and 23' wide! Discover a Dodger Stadium speakeasy designed by the legendary Tommy Lasorda. Local bars have menus for everyone from vegans to your dog. The day is bookended by two infamous food challenges: the five-pound Manuel's Special Burrito and the fiery Orochon Ramen Special #2.
