Tailgate Basics - Big Game L.I.
With Pro Football's Super Sunday Looming, It's Time To Heat Up The Chili
To Julius Cesare and his fellow Romans, L.I. meant 51, which is exactly what it will mean this coming Sunday as the National Football League's two top teams, including the one in our own backyard with the power-runningback who wears our name on the back of his strapping shoulders, meet to decide who will hoist the 17-pound sterling silver statue, and make history for their city and their fans.
Across America, we will come together as a community to enjoy the game at house parties and in restaurants and bars. Whether a hard-core football fan, a fan of the TV commercials, or even Lady Gaga and her Halftime Spectacular, Super Bowl Sunday, and the weeks leading up to it, is a festive, celebratory time. So it should come as no surprise that it requires festive, celebratory food and drink to fuel the party.
Whether you are a restaurant leader, or selling groceries to the host of a house party, you’ve undoubtedly been thinking about your Game Day offering. Heck, the time to roll out your menu is now!
No football-watching menu is complete without a good bowl of chili. Worried about quality of your chili offering, or concerned about the involved prep that comes with a showcase chili?
