When: Sunday, February 2nd. Kick-off is at 6:25 p.m.
Where: MetLife Stadium at the Meadowlands in East Rutherford, NJ. An easy train ride from Manhattan.
Who: Dunno the teams yet, but the half-time show will feature the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Bruno Mars.
In addition, there are lots of crazy things happening on a created-just-for-the-event Superbowl Boulevard, along Broadway between 34th and 47th Streets on the week leading up to the competition, including autograph sessions with players, getting your picture taken with the Vince Lombardi trophy, and–oddly enough–a toboggan run.
If you don’t have tickets to the big game and are a football fan, there are hundreds of bars around town that will be broadcasting the event. Special (although generally costly) viewing parties have been set up at some nightlife venues. A cheaper alternative is grabbing a $4 beer at local pub Fiddlesticks or oyster bar and seafood shack Ditch Plains.
But hey–if you aren’t a football fan, come hang in the lounge with us! We promise that It will be warm, there will be no TV blaring and no one with a painted face will be pounding their chest and screaming. (And if I do, you can just politely ask me to cut it out.)
