With only a few days to go before we see the Giants crush the Patriots in Phoenix (c’mon let’s be optimistic) fans are making plans to party hearty. If you got your tickets for the game and plane, that’s just the beginning of a super-expensive weekend.
Staying close to home and got a spot reserved in front of a big-screen TV? This Saturday may be the biggest snack day of the year. And all across America, fans will be dipping into super bowls heaped with guacamole. (Watch those tight ends, the funny ads, and half-time show – but watch out for the double-dippers…) We hear hometown mayors Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino think it’s all about the chowder: Manhattan vs. Boston.
Want to put an extra kick in your Super Bowl Sunday? There’s guacamole, and help, right here in Baristaville.
Tinga’s, with its bottomless supply of guacamole and chips, will deliver all your favorite fresh Mexican treats. While Senorita’s is offering four quarters of free food if you go there and watch the game on a 125-inch screen. If you’re into the wing thing or a want a good ribbing, The Wood Pit is offering super deals to serve a a super crowd. Joe Bartoni’s gets high scores for their three-foot subs, 18-inch ciabatta bread sandwiches (from $39.95), gourmet sandwich platters ($69.95), dips and pasta salads. Food fans, try to get your orders in by Friday.
If you’re planning on making chili, visit Spice It Up, a pandora’s box of condiments, spices, rubs, and hot sauces to spice up your game.
Still undecided? Whole Foods Montclair and West Orange have these Big Game food suggestions: Super platters of wings, chili, crudites, dips, beer-friendly cheese and snack gift baskets, crab & shrimp cocktail, and Big Game Pull Apart Cupcakes (a giant cake make of individual cupcakes with a football icing top). This Saturday, stop in at West Orange WF for their informal super bowl tasting.
