What to do on Superbowl Sunday
The Superbowl is almost here and I hope you're excited. I know I'm more looking forward to the incredible eats and drinks rather than watching the actual game - but it all works together to create a great atmosphere during one of the most important sporting events in America. Still undecided about what you're doing for it? Here are some of my personal recommendations:
Studio Square - Hosting a big Superbowl shin-dig, they're bringing out the big guns with unlimited beer, wine, sangria, S2 Loaded Lemonade, and Red Stag iced tea. A buffet with piping hot food will be available too - all for $40/person, and it starts at 4 p.m. 35-33 36th Street, Astoria. 718.383.1001
Raven's Head Public House - Come on down to this newish sports haven on Sunday, where they're taking Superbowl reservations for large groups. They'll have beer and food specials that day, and you can expect a big helping of wings as one of the piece-de-resistance items. 38-04 Broadway, Astoria. 718.777.7565
Astoria Brewhouse - Always down to throw a party, they'll be having a private affair in honor of the Superbowl, which starts at 6 p.m. and goes til the end of the game. While it's a bit of a splurge at $80/pop, you'll get an open bar, food and a chance to win prizes including a flat screen TV. 28-50 31st Street, Astoria. 718.728.0050
Malu - Probably not the first place you think of when considering the Superbowl, but they've got all your sweet treats. If you order your stuff by Thursday, you'll have it ready by the Superbowl - think ice cream cakes, mini cupcakes, cookies, brownies and all sorts of toppings. 12-09 Jackson Avenue, LIC. 718.729.6258
My top Superbowl recipes - And of course there's nothing like making your own grub when hosting or attending a Superbowl party. Here are some my gametime suggestions: Bacon deviled eggs, Adam's Thai-style ribs, Chocolate covered bacon, Nutella peanut-butter pie.
