Super Bowl Parties We're Cheering For

Put your quarterback into it

super bowl 2013 parties!

We’re in it to win it.

To ensure your Super Bowl Sunday is one for the books, take a cue from history.

Make like Marie
Cake is for amateurs. Order a home-delivered spread from local chefs via Munchery and let them eat smoked chicken and cheese taquito poppers with salsa verde and guajillo mole, candied bacon praline with Guinness dark chocolate and ganache dip, and charbroiled beef sliders with Cajun-spiced steak fries.

The Gold Rush
At the Clift’s Redwood Room, it’s black and white: Salute the Niners while sipping a Candlestick, made with George Dickel bourbon, Fernet Branca, Luxardo maraschino liqueur, and orange bitters; or rebel with the Baltimore soft-shell crab sandwich, served with Old Bay aioli and coleslaw on a brioche bun.

Woodstocked and Ready
We don’t have any beef with the Castro burger joint’s the-more-the-merrier philosophy. Watch the game on six big-screen TVs and toss back sixteen kinds of beer (Deschutes Black Butte Porter, Delirium Tremens). SliderBar’s seventeen plays on the mini burger (chicken with serrano chili and green tomatillo, double grass-fed beef) keep you fueled into overtime.

Halftime by the Bey
The next best thing to summering in the Hamptons with Diddy? A 63-degrees and sunny January afternoon in your city. Take the party outside with cut-to-order steaks and bacon-studded hot dogs from 4505 Meats, the newish Mission butcher shop from Ryan Farr.

Mardi On
Can’t make it to New Orleans? Be a true baller by bringing Boxing Room’s Southern-inspired grub to your Super Bowl destination. Feast on red beans, po’boys, gumbo, jambalaya, and more. Beads not included.

It’s going to be a helluva night.
