No joke, the biggest football game of the year is coming up on Sunday, February 3rd. Whether you’re watching the game or the commercials, we’re guessing there’s a get-together coming your way. We’ve put together our favorite products for both hardcore fans and “who’s playing this year?” partygoers. Follow our lead and we’re sure your Sunday will be super!
Snack Like You Mean It
The name of the game is snacks. We have some favorite dips (this writer is particular to buffalo chicken ranch dip), but – really – if it goes on chips, it’s a winner. For hosts, chips and dip are a great way to keep food in supply for the entire length of a 4-hour game. Attendees bringing a dip can rest easy knowing that it won’t overshadow the hosts’ main course. The Rachael Ray Serveware Chip N Dip set comes in both purple and red, making it perfect for this year’s party.
According to the commercials, everyone at the party will be drinking ice cold beer, possibly delivered by train. But, really, game day drink options have more range than Beyonce. A good blender is perfect for whipping up cocktail concoctions, both alcoholic and non, that’ll set your party above the sports bar. Blended juices and smoothies are a refreshing and filling treat for kids and non-drinkers, while a good salty lime margarita should satisfactorily sate the rest.
Get Your Game Face On
If you’re lucky enough to live somewhere warm, there’s a good chance some partygoers will head outside. Cornhole is the consummate game for tailgaters, with easy rules, super-competitive play, and sports tie-ins. Officially licensed NFL cornhole sets sport gridiron graphics and authentic team end zones that go perfectly with other gameday gear.
Here’s an unexpected one. Billiard balls! Spend halftime sharking up a little friendly competition on the pool table, or use pool as a way for sore losers to vent a little frustration. Either way, replacing your normal 13- or 9-ball set with full-color licensed NFL balls is a great way to show your true colors. If you’re sure pool will be popular, go all out – both teams also license cues, triangles, and more.
However you prepare for football fun, remember that it’s usually a party where everyone’s included. Kids, parents, fans, casual observers, commercial-watchers, snack food addicts, and more will be descending on the hosts’ house (or yours), so get ready appropriately. Have fun this Sunday and party safe!
