Super Bowl Party Ideas
Watched by more than 110 million people, the Super Bowl is the most watched TV programme in America and one of the biggest sporting events in the world. Typically held on the last Sunday in January or the first Sunday in February, Super Bowl is a national holiday in America and has become famous for its parties, food and multi-million-pound adverts.
Today there are many events and parties that have become sideshows to the Super Bowl game. Some of the most famous of these parties are the DIRECTV Super Bowl Party in New York, the NFL’s official tailgate party at the Meadowlands Racetrack and the Playboy Super Bowl Party held in New Orleans. In the past, the magazine’s famous Playmates sat atop MINI roadsters for a parade through the French Quarter complete with brass band musicians at their side. Another extravagant Super Bowl event is the Leather and Lace Party held at Liberty Theatre in Times Square. Stretching out over two nights, guests at this flamboyant party can expect to pay $30,000 for 12 VIP tickets, six bottles of liquor and three bottles of Moet & Chandon Champagne.
For most of us, the day is set aside as a day for indulging and splurging on great food; the Super Bowl is second only to the American celebration of Thanksgiving. However, this calls for much more casual dining - think red cups, paper plates and napkins. It allows a chance to enjoy a selection of dishes, often contributed by friends and family members who gather together, meaning that there is no culinary burden on the host.
As a result of being one of the few annual events to achieve such wide viewership, many high-profile television commercials are broadcast during the game. Having become a well-known part of the “Super Bowl” experience, American television networks are able to sell precious seconds of airtime to large companies for millions of dollars. Through these carefully selected adverts, America has a chance to showcase its proud heritage to the world through historic US icons, popular music performers and famous products. During recent years these adverts have included global brands Budweiser, Apple, Coca Cola and Doritos as well as famous American performers such as Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Beyonce and the NFL Cheerleaders.
No longer a game celebrated just by Americans, Super Bowl has become an international event. The game provides the perfect opportunity for faithful football fans and casual viewers alike to set aside time to indulge in great food and gather with friends and family in an annual festivity. Therefore it is no surprise that many people plan parties around this huge celebratory occasion and naturally, preparing for this day of rivalries and good old-fashioned American fun takes time.
