Bowled Over

Five Things Your Super Bowl Party Needs

Peyton Manning yelling “OMAHA.” Richard Sherman yelling “Don’t you ever talk about me!” Your friends yelling “That is some tasty pastrami!” These things could all happen Sunday. Allow us to explain that last one...

Classic Platters from the General Muir
GENERAL ELECTRIC

Classic Platters from the General Muir

The Usual: Some cold cuts. Some cheese cubes. Some indifference.
The Upgrade: A giant tray of pastrami (smoked and hand-sliced), corned beef, chopped liver, gruyère and pretty much whatever else you want from the NYC-inspired deli. Beats freezing your buns off at the Meadowlands.

$1 Wings from Smoke Ring
WING IT

$1 Wings from Smoke Ring

The Usual: Wings that cost upwards of $1.
The Upgrade: Chicken wings that cost exactly $1. More specifically: wings that were brined for 24 hours, slathered in a house rub, smoked for an hour and then deep brined with white BBQ sauce... that cost exactly $1.

For takeout or delivery within five miles, Smoke Ring, 309 Nelson St NW, 404-228-6377

La Masa House’s Margarita Bike
I LIKE BIKE

La Masa House’s Margarita Bike

The Usual: Getting a drink from the fridge.
The Upgrade: Getting a drink from this bike. La Masa House will set it up (bartender included) for the game, during which they’ll also serve beers and margaritas. They’ll also provide a popsicle cart and a tacos/tostadas/tamales stand, in case you also enjoy eating.

Endless Meat from DBA
CUE TIPS

Endless Meat from DBA

The Usual: A bucket full of something fried.
The Upgrade: A meat-and-sides-style buffet (stands and canned heat included). Bone-in chicken. Pork. Spare-rib racks. Baked beans. Potato salad. Coleslaw. Banana pudding. We’ll stop now.

Tailgate Package, $300, feeds 15, D.B.A. Barbecue, 1190 N Highland Ave NE, 404-249-5010

An Escape Plan
BOURBON PLANNING

An Escape Plan

The Usual: Finding guacamole stains in your carpet. In March.
The Upgrade: Hightailing it to Bourbon Bar. They’re setting up a big-screen projector, making smoked Manhattans and doing an NYC-themed snack menu (think Italian sausage and pastrami sliders). It’s just not the Super Bowl without smoked Manhattans.
