- Super Bowl Sunday!
Super Bowl Sunday is only a few days away, but that doesn't mean there isn't enough time to throw together a quick and fun party for your friends and family. Now is definitely the time to start stocking up on beer, tortilla chips and soda. You might even be able to sneak in the occasional gourmet treat every now and then to your unsuspecting guests.
We don't want to leave anyone out in the cold when it comes to Super Bowl party planning, so we scoured the net to put together a list of tips for throwing a great Super Bowl party. Have any tips of your own that you want to share? Leave a comment and let us know!
Super Bowl Party Tips
- TIP 1: Decorate the house in the colors of the team you're rooting for. If one of the teams playing is "your" team, put on all your paraphernalia.
- TIP 2: Move any fragile or breakable items out of the room before the game starts.
- TIP 3: Invest in a few foam "bad-call bricks" to throw at the TV so your guests can express their feelings about the refs without doing damage to your house.
- TIP 4: If you're going to have guests who are rooting for different teams, establish an imaginary line (or for fun, "draw" one with masking tape) down the center of the room. Decorate each side in one team's colors.
- TIP 5: Order a "Super Bowl Party in a Box" that includes plates, napkins, cups and a football snack bowl.
- TIP 6: Pick up veggie, cheese and cold cut plates and a six-foot long sandwich or two from a deli and have all the food laid out on a table within sight of the TV. Don't make your guests choose between eating and watching the game.
- TIP 7: Buy several six-packs of beer. Keep the beer in a cooler close by so you don't have to run to the fridge when it's third and inches. Restock the cooler at halftime.
- TIP 8: Have everyone write down who they think will win and what the final score will be before the game starts. Award a silly prize, like a big football piñata, to the person who comes the closest.
Do you plan on having a Super Bowl party this weekend? Even if you aren't, let us know what you're up to!

- Winter 2007 Restaurant Week
Winter 2007 Restaurant Week has descended upon the city this week and reservations are being booked at a frenzied pace. The Restaurant Week organizers have continued the trend of extending the discounts for two weeks rather than one, much to my happiness of course.
New York's best restaurants are serving up three-course prix-fixe lunches for $24.07, and three-course prix-fixe dinners for $35.00. Beverages, gratuities and tax are additional.
New additions to the Winter '07 Restaurant Week line up include: Megu, Le Cirque, Morimoto and Del Posto, among many others. Now is the time to get those lunch and dinner reservations in, or else you'll be stuck out in the cold with a can of Chef Boyardee Ravioli!
Which of the restaurants do you plan on visiting? And more importantly, do you think you'll be able to stick to ordering from the Restaurant Week menus once you see all of the other great food on the regular menus?
