If you’re like us, you’re only just realizing that there’s a football season happening this year at all. (Isn’t it like...a pandemic and all sports are canceled?) This new information comes partly because we saw Tom Brady featured on SNL last week. And partly because we got duped into opening an email about the Super Bowl after the subject line included the word, “NACHOS.”
Well, here we are. Another football season finale has arrived. Do we know who’s playing? Absolutely not. Do we know we’ll be eating spicy wings, long sub sandwiches, and Vietnamese bbq? Yes, yes we do. Here are three places we’re ordering from:
We hate saying “the big game.” It sounds weirdly perverted, or like we’re tiptoeing around using a curse word in front of a six-year-old. What we love, however, is a Buffalo wing dipped in ranch (not its abominable brother, blue cheese). This year, as you exclusively tune into Amanda Gorman’s poetry reading during halftime, make a plan to eat Di An Di’s Vietnamese meat feast that comes with everything from wings, baby back ribs, pork and shrimp rolls, and a hot dog with spicy relish and pickled tomatoes. It costs $35 per person, and you have to place your order by Friday, February 5th.
The inspiration behind this guide is as follows: Staff Writer Nikko Duren linked us to Hometown Bar-B-Que’s Super Bowl special and said, “might order this and not watch the Super Bowl.” We knew then we needed a guide. Hometown’s takeout game-day options include three-foot sandwiches, multiple forms of wings, growlers of beer, and plenty of smoked meat and sides. You have to place your order by Friday, February 5th if you want it to arrive in time for a marathon of AllState commercials that make you weep.
King David Tacos
We’re fairly positive the Super Bowl is on a Sunday - simply because of alliteration. But in case you’d rather eat game-day-related food any other day of the weekend, order King David Taco’s nacho kit. They’re delivering on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and each pack comes with homemade queso, chips, chorizo or vegan chili, plus beans, sour cream, salsa verde, and pickled jalapeños. All you have to do is put it in the oven and continue not watch sweaty maskless men run around before and after The Weeknd performs
