CELEBRATE SUPER BOWL XLVIII AT HOME

YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO OUT TO CATCH THE ACTION

With Super Bowl XLVIII coming up fast, it makes sense that the preparations for game night are already underway. People are looking for ways to celebrate, even if they can’t get through the gates on the night of the big game, and not everyone wants to park it at a sports bar for five hours to catch all of the action.

Maybe you’re among the group of people who really wants to enjoy a great night in with your friends and family, enjoying an American tradition with amazing food, cocktails and a safe way home for all of your friends. To help you plan your Super Bowl night in, take a look at our ideas below.

CAR SERVICE TO GET YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY HOME SAFELY

If you’ve hosted any kind of party before, you know the sinking feeling you get when you realize that some of the people at your party might not have safe rides home. A Super Bowl party is no different. Most people will want to have special drinks available to their party goers, and drinking and driving simply don’t mix.

Relying on taxis and trying to find designated drivers are hardly ever the most reliable options, even if they do seem like the easiest. Taxi drivers might not know how to get where your friends are going, which means it will be easy to run up the fare. Having a designated driver might seem like a good alternative, but it still leaves one party-goer unable to partake in all of the festivities.

Your Perfect Atlantic City Night Out is a great option for the conundrum of safe transportation home after the Super Bowl. The chauffeur will be a local expert and a great driver who will get your loved ones where they need to go, and no one will have to miss out on the celebratory shots or champagne toast.

SUPER BOWL SNACKS FOR THE WINNERS IN US ALL

No matter who gets the AFC and NFC bids to the Super Bowl this year, the opportunity to create amazing football-themed snacks for your home party is available year-round.

The first step to planning your Super Bowl party menu is to know who will be attending and what they can eat. You don’t want to have all meat-based dishes if there’s a vegan on your invite list, and you should probably have foods on hand that gluten-free, lactose intolerant and diabetic people can enjoy. There are few things that kill the party excitement faster than realizing someone in attendance can’t eat any of the food you’ve prepared. So know about any food allergies or dietary restrictions before you hear the first doorbell ring.

A couple of great options for planning your Super Bowl menu this year is Eating Well, which offers some healthy options, and Glutenista, which can help with preparing dishes that your gluten-free friends can enjoy.

For traditional Super Bowl snacks, consider taking a glance at the Food Network’s ideas. From desserts to sandwiches and more, you’ll find something for every course.

If you’re looking towards hosting your own Super Bowl party in 2014, remember to take care of your guests and make sure everyone has a safe ride home. Showing your concern for everyone’s safety will ensure that they can all gather at your house again the next time the Super Bowl rolls around.
