Seven Things You Need for a Great Super Bowl Party
Super bowl weekend is finally here. So what if your favorite didn't make it to the show. That dosen't mean you can't throw a kick -butt party!
If you're hosting a party make sure you've got everything you need before the game starts. No one wants to run out at halftime and miss Madonna lip-synching. Here is a small list of the necessities you will need to have on hand:
1.) Enough People. Have you ever been to an awesome party that only had three or four people at it? No so make sure the guest list is big. And at the same time don't invite so many people that there is no where to sit or chill. A good mix of singles and couples along with fanatic and passive fans should keep the level and spirit up and equal a great party.
2.) Your going to need TV's. Two would be good. A smaller one for the kitchen or patio and at least a 42-Inch High-Definition TV for the living room. That's according to the website MidwestSportsFan.com .
(People expect a big TV at a Super Bowl party. So if you don't have one, see if you can borrow one from a friend or a neighbor. And if you do, obviously make sure you invite them.)
3.) Plenty of Beer and Wine. Two things you don't want to run out in the middle of the game. It depends on the crowd, but to be safe figure at least five beers per person and a bottle for ever three ladies. That's assuming it's a mix of men and women, and some of them won't drink at all.
4.) Food Food and Lots of Food. Chips and dip, or chips and salsa are the one snack you absolutely have to have. Wings, spinach and artichoke dips, finger sandwiches, veggies with ranch and of course and don't for get the main course. Grilled chicken or burgers are easy and everyone loves them.
5.) Plenty of Soft Chairs. If you've got 10 people coming, don't make five of them sit on folding chairs for three-and-a-half hours. Obviously any chair is better than no chair. But if it's possible, have a cushioned seat for every person.
6.) Something Else to Do at Halftime. A lot of people don't care about the halftime show. So the best Super Bowl parties have alternatives. Try to DVR
a comedian or something that is 30 to 45 minutes long to cover the time. It should not be the focal point but have it on in the background.
7.) A Plunger. I know it sounds crazy but really, have you ever been to a party and gotten a stomach cramp or had too many drinks? You don't advertise the fact that you have one. Just make sure it's available along with plenty of TP.
Follow these steps and your bash should be a success and remember, Plan on being available to drive a drunk friend home if needed.
