With Super Bowl 50 approaching Sunday, many people are gearing up to throw watch parties and get-togethers to see the big event with their friends. Many details go into throwing such an event like this: Where will the party be, how big is the television screen, and most importantly, what kind of food will you be serving?
Many people choose to simply prepare food for their parties. Charles Cephas, a Hampton University senior computer science major from Baltimore, said "I tend to watch the Super Bowl at my apartment with my friends. We usually make food like wings and fries to eat during the game."
For bigger parties, you're going to obviously need more food. Places like Wing Zone, Hooters, Subway, and Buffalo Wild Wings offer catering services where you can order large amounts of food for as low as $50. At Subway, that amount serves 10 to 12 people, according to the "Grab a 3-foot giant sub and watch the big game with friends" promotion.
Buffalo Wild Wings advertised 80 chicken wings for $67.99 that could feed 16 to 20 people, and the Wing Zone offer was 100 pieces for $74.99 to feed 10 to 15 people.
You also have the choice of going to the restaurants to watch the game.
"I'm really a big fan of football, and I love going into Buffalo Wild Wings during sports events. The atmosphere is crazy and the food is so good," said Kennedi Riley, a junior kinesiology major from Baltimore. "Their wings and service are truly the best."
If you have nowhere to watch the game on campus, Hampton University's Student Government Association will be holding a Super Bowl party in the Student Center Ballroom at 6 p.m. There will be food and refreshments provided.
The Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos will be playing each other during the Super Bowl 50 on February 7 at 6:30 p.m. at the Levi's Stadium in California on CBS.
