It’s that time, folks! You know, the really important football game in Feb that shall not be named due to advertising restrictions 😉
If hosting a crew, you don’t need a ton of time or money to throw the sports party of the year; you just need a little preparation and, of course, guidance from some party pros.
We’ve been hosting parties for decades, and we know that nothing brings people together like football and beer. There’s the unsullied hope; the chance for a team to be reborn–and this charged expectation is electric, which makes for solid party energy.
So keep reading. Here are the ideas that will take your game day from meh to amazing.
1. FEAST FAIRLY
While many guests will gobble eat up the traditional sports bar fare, lifestyle choices and dietary restrictions mean that you should widen your spread to include some meat-less and wheat-less options too. You can accommodate both with Cauliflower Chicken Wings or a Vegan Layered Dip.
You get the idea. Your game party fare doesn’t have to mean compromising on delicious eats. By all means, bring on the wings and cheeseburger bites, but also whip up a couple of these tasty alt-options, for good measure, and good manners.
2. Drink Easy
While there's nothing wrong with having people bring their own booze, a good host will always provide all guests with a tipple or two. If you're looking for an approachable beer that goes with everything on the Game Day spread - our short can 24s are currently $4 off!
Also, be sure to have some fun non-alcoholic options like craft soda, kombucha or iced tea or coffee. The point is, your job as the host is not only to accommodate but to foresee the needs and reasonable desires of every guest. And, while we're on the topic of drinks and needs, make sure you have a safe ride home or accommodations for guests who are imbibing.
3. Feng Shui your space
Skip the plastic footballs at the dollar store and focus what really matters most. Ensure that your house is welcoming and create space so everyone can all sit, eat and drink comfortably. Rearrange your furniture (borrow some from your neighbours or patio if needed) to ensure your space is game-day ready for your friends and family to jump around as needed or sit down for a little cry depending on the outcome.
Regardless of which city (or Kelce brother) you're supporting this Sunday, we just hope everybody has fun!
