The Other Kind of Super Bowl Spread

The bad news about this year’s Super Bowl: well, let’s not dwell on all that recent ugliness. The good news: the <em>Magic Bacon Bombs</em> on the way to your place. Here are the finest Super Bowl party foods just waiting to be delivered on game day.

What Salumeria Is Doing with Avocado

What Salumeria Is Doing with Avocado

The Situation: Someone invited a heathen who doesn’t like guacamole.
The Solution: An order from Salumeria, which is taking over Central Kitchen on game day. They’ll get you salumi and cheese boards, potato salad, beer, and... scallion and avocado dip. It’s totally not guacamole.

Order by Jan 31 for pickup Feb 1, Salumeria at Central Kitchen, 3000 20th St (at Florida), 415-471-2998

These Are Magic Bacon Bombs

These Are <em>Magic Bacon Bombs</em>

The Situation: You’ve never hosted a Super Bowl party filled with Magic Bacon Bombs. In other words, you haven’t truly lived.
The Solution: Wings, Polish sausage, kraut and more from 4505 meats. “More” meaning those bombs, which are jalapeños stuffed with chorizo queso and wrapped in bacon. Boom.

Order by Jan 31 for pickup on Feb 1 or Feb 2, 4505 Meats, 1909 Mission St (at 15th), 415-255-3094

Presidio Social Club’s Mac and Cheese

Presidio Social Club’s Mac and Cheese

The Situation: There’s a troubling sub-faction of guests who demand... kale salad.
The Solution: Okay, fine. They want it, they get it. Kale salad. But it’ll come with mac and cheese, meat loaf and bread (for sandwiches), and deviled eggs. Kale salad on Super Bowl. Ridiculous.

Order by noon on Jan 30, Presidio Social Club, 563 Ruger St (near the Lombard Gates), 415-885-1888

Maryland Crab Cakes Shipped to You

Maryland Crab Cakes Shipped to You

The Situation: You’re going all-in. No singularly themed food, no city loyalty. Just... everything. From... everywhere.
The Solution: The SF-based Goldbely has Ben’s chili dogs from DC, wings from Buffalo’s Anchor Bar, Maryland crab cakes, and Momofuku’s Crack Pie from NYC. Should last you until halftime.

Order by Jan 29, Super Bowl Collection at Goldbely

The Private Apartment at the Clift

The Private Apartment at the Clift

The Situation: You dispute the notion that “hosting” means having people over to your place.
The Solution: Have everyone over to the Private Apartment at the Clift. The suite holds 20—and there’ll be a full bar, Seattle food and Denver food. Mmm, Denver food.

$10,000 for up to 20, Clift, 495 Geary St (at Taylor), 415-775-4700
