Super Bowl 50 is finally here. Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos will square off with Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers in what is one of the most anticipated Super Bowls in recent memory.
The question is, are you prepared for everything that comes along with the biggest sporting event of the year?
Do you have all the delicious food that you need? Do you know where to find the best Super Bowl atmosphere?
We’re here to give you some last-minute advice if you’re scrambling to create the ultimate Super Bowl Sunday experience.
What to Eat
Did you know that 1.23 billion chicken wings are eaten on Super Bowl Sunday? 1.23 billion. That’s a lot of chicken wings. If you’re throwing together a party for friends or family and can only serve one food item, this is it.
You can’t go wrong with ordering 300 boxes of pizza to fuel your Super Bowl party. If you’re a big Peyton Manning fan, then naturally you have to go with Papa John’s as your establishment of choice. If you’re not, then there’s plenty of other options out there.
Buffalo Chicken Dip
Every Super Bowl party needs a good section devoted to chips and dip. Buffalo chicken dip is really an outstanding choice, but you can always go with other normal dips like salas or guacamole.
Want to feel like you’re actually at the game? Down a few hot dogs. They are a cheap and effective way to add an even better football-like atmosphere to your party. And the good news is that they won’t cost $35 a piece like they probably will at Levi’s Stadium on game day. At least we assume that’s how much they cost since a single draft beer costs $15.
This could be anything really. People love mini-food. You could do mini-cheeseburgers or anything of that nature to keep the food rolling in for your guests. Snack food is the greatest, so giving everyone smaller food options is always a worthy idea.
Where to Watch
There will obviously be plenty of places to watch all of the Super Bowl festivities, but here are a few options that you can check out around the Nashville area.
Corner Pub – Midtown
The Corner Pub in Midtown always has an awesome atmosphere that will no doubt be taken up a notch for such a big event. They also have party platters available for purchase.
Located in Hillsboro Village, Double Dogs is a great place to be when sports are happening. There’s plenty of TV’s for your viewing pleasure, so this is a solid choice.
Beyond the Edge
The best part about this East Nashville sports bar? The massive amount of TV’s on display. So you can turn in all different directions and never miss a second of the Super Bowl action.
Bailey’s Sports Grille
There’s no doubt that this Broadway selection will be rocking when the game kicks off. It will most definitely have a Super Bowl-like atmosphere.
This Green Hills sports bar has two stories to go along with great food and numerous TV’s. What more could you want?
