That time of year has come again, and even though one team that is not the Eagles (the San Francisco 49ers) is playing another team that is not the Eagles (the Baltimore Ravens), the Super Bowl still manages to bring out the excitement in both sport and non-sports fans. Between the opening performances, halftime show and the eagerly awaited commercials, the actual game is almost incidental.
Of course, no Super Bowl is complete without enjoying the game surrounded by friends, fried foods and free-flowing beer. If you are not interested in handling the organization, preparation and clean-up involved with hosting your own party, there are plenty of options from local restaurants and bars. Just remember to drink responsibly and get home safely.
