MUST-HAVE FOODS FOR YOUR SUPER BOWL PARTY
You really can’t have a Super Bowl party without wings; it just wouldn’t be a party for football. Wings are the quintessential finger foods that are great to eat when your team is in scoring position, or you need one when a personal foul was just called on your team. They can calm your jitters and keep you from throwing items at the referees on the screen. Bounce Sporting Club in Chicago recommends that you shouldn’t limit yourself to just hot wings either. Mix it up with many flavors, such as lemon pepper, BBQ, garlic, or teriyaki wings. This will keep your guests happy with variety and save your favorite kind all for yourself.
Chips and Salsa
When it comes to Super Bowl foods, you want to keep it simple and easy to grab. One of the easiest foods to grab and eat is chips and salsa. They are easily eaten in one bite and taste incredibly good. Again, mix up the traditional salsa here and add in cheese dip and guacamole dip for added variety and textures. Chips and salsa are sure to be a crowd pleaser during a touchdown and are a food that even the kids in attendance can appreciate and enjoy.
Another must-have Super Bowl party food is pizza. Pizza is filling and is easy to grab with no need of cumbersome plates or forks and spoons. Pizza can fill you up when your team is losing and make you feel better — even if just for a short time. Pizza also can be a healthier Super Bowl food choice since you will have an abundance of protein (cheese and meat toppings) and carbs (crust and vegetables). Throw in some breadsticks and marinara sauce or ranch dressing for a great food item to dip as well. Bounce Sporting Club recommends ordering tried-and-true favorites, such as cheese pizza and pepperoni pizza along with only a couple exotic kinds, such as those with pineapple or anchovies. Not only will this satisfy the majority of your guests, but you’ll also have less wasted pizza when the party is over.
While you may be arguing that beer is not a food, Bounce Sporting Club in Chicago believes that it is. Beer has a lot of history, and when you partake of beer, you are engaging in a centuries-old tradition. Beer is made with grains, hops, and yeast, which is food, mixed with water. Monasteries today (and for centuries) have been brewing beer to use as food to sustain them during periods of fasting, as well as a food item at dinner. After all, beer is filling and contains sugars and carbs that can give you energy.
Truly, like wings, you can’t have a Super Bowl party without beer. It just wouldn’t be the same, and you’d be breaking with tradition, which is part of what makes the Super Bowl what it is. While you can have other alcoholic beverages, such as wine and spirits, a great-tasting beer, along with pizza and wings, are what make the Super Bowl party.
Any event of some magnitude can be challenging to not only plan but also to pull off. After all, you have to set up, cook the food, make sure the food doesn’t run out, and cleanup afterwards. It is most definitely a chore, and if you are the host, you may end up missing out of the most important part of the Super Bowl — watching the game itself.
When you partner with Bounce Sporting Club for as your Super Bowl event venue in Chicago, you can have peace of mind knowing that we handle all of the most-dreaded tasks when it comes to throwing a party, from the setup and cleanup to the food.
