The Super Bowl, it’s Happening: Here Are 10 Food and Drink Specials to Order for the Occasion

Super Bowl Sunday is ostensibly the most American day that doesn’t appear on calendars — hot take: it should, and much like Thanksgiving, we should have the following day off as well because currently it’s Miserable Monday, regardless of game’s outcome. What’s interesting about the whole event is that you don’t even have to be a football fan to enjoy it or take part in it. You are aware of it’s existence, you see the towering displays of soda in the store, you hear the squabbling about who is performing at halftime, you read the hype surrounding the million dollar commercials — typically the scourge of TV viewing — that people are actually excited to watch. Strange things indeed. And then of course there is the aftermath. Was that performance garbage? Were the commercials lame? And I guess, who won.

But there is another huge star of the event, maybe thee star. It’s the food. Here are some shocking-yet-not-shocking facts about that from trusted Super Bowl authority, brobible.com, about the weekend of Super Bowl LIII: Americans ate “88 million pounds of cheese, 1.38 billion chicken wings (about 27 million more wings than the previous year), 10 million pounds of ribs, 8 million pounds of guacamole, over 14,500 tons of chips, 4 million pounds of pretzels, 3.8 million pounds of popcorn, and 2.5 million pounds of nuts.” 

Yum. So to help you with your gluttonous endeavors, here are some local food and drink specials to order for the big day.
