Things to do for February 02, 2012
Gallons of Chili, Dozens of Wings, One Big Game
The weekend saw your shadow.
Your Gallon of Chili Awaits
We don’t mean to panic you, but you only have until 7pm tonight to order chili by the gallon from Butcher & the Burger. Okay, we see you’re panicking. Deep breath. Focus. But whatever you do, don’t forget to order some blue-cheese-stuffed, bacon-wrapped meatball skewers, too.
You’re Hosting, They’re Cooking...
You’ve got a lot on your plate for your Super Bowl party: color calibration, speaker placement, halftime karaoke-contest pyrotechnics. Leave the cooking to Barn & Company—their to-go spread is pretty solid: five chickens, 10 slabs, 60 wings, etc. Freeing you to track down that marching band you ordered.
And Somewhere Above Wisconsin...
Perhaps someone’s going to feel neglected on Sunday. So a pregame day trip’s in order. Drive north, and stop when the sky becomes littered with hot-air balloons and the streets are filled with chili cook-offs, ice sculptures and kazoo marching bands. Maybe the Re/Max guy can give you a lift home.
Pork and the Super Bowl. They have a pretty well-established relationship. You respect that. But sometimes you want to stray. So in addition to a pig roast, Sunda’s entire menu is half off. Then again, there’s chocolate-covered bacon for dessert. You always come back to bacon.
The Super Bowl Steak-Out
Loud, sweaty sports bars are absolutely the best places to be on Super Sunday. Obviously. But a very, very close second: opulent steakhouses. Sit at the bar, drink martinis and nosh complimentary flatbreads, mini tacos, beef tenderloin sliders and chicken satays and watch the game. Gronkowski jersey not required.
