Like Christmas and Easter, the Super Bowl only comes once a year. The National Anthem, the commercials, the football shaped Oreos—the Super bowl is a tradition you can count on. Aside from the teams that play, the only difference year to year is the people you watch the game with.
You might have watched the game with you hall mates in college; with your coworkers in your twenties; with your in-laws in your thirties. That’s what’s so great about the game—you and everybody in the room are connected by one experience. Really, what else can do that?
So, in anticipation of the XLVII Super Bowl, we’ve got some party ideas that are sure to please your guests, be they college buddies, girlfriends, or bosses.
Before we get to the part about drinks and football-shaped food, let’s talk LOGISTICS. First and foremost, you have to have an adequate television.
