Alas, the weekend has almost arrived. This Sunday, instead of relaxing and preparing for the week ahead, many Americans will be gearing up for the big game.  After months of speculation, betting, and too many close games, It’s Super Bowl Sunday y’all! This game is not just huge for football aficionados (in particular those who are loyal Panther’s or Bronco’s fans) but huge for YOUR restaurant.

Here are some articles we found to add to your playbook to get that touchdown for your business on Sunday.  

1- Okay, I Don’t Have 5 Million Dollars To Spend On An Ad.  What Can I Do Instead?

We get it… we all don’t have the budget to spend over 5 Million for a 30 second ad. However, with a few minutes of brainstorming, you can transform your bar into your local Game Day Headquarters.  Before Sunday you could post on your social media accounts about a promotion that you will be running for the big game.  Or, if social media isn’t your thing, try passing out games like betting squares, not forgetting slap your logo on there as well as other events you have coming up this winter. Read more about how to do this here.

2. Guy Fieri is Hosting a $700 a Person Tailgate Party Outside Levi’s Stadium

Yes, you read that right.  To go to Guy Fieri’s Super Bowl Tailgate you will need to shell out a mere $700. Sounds crazy, but the famous T.V. chef will be whipping up some tasty dishes along with 25 NFL players and sports broadcaster Erin Andrews.  The event will take place just outside the stadium and will be equipped with leather couches, a silent auction and pre game coverage.  The menu includes a “Mac Daddy Mac and Cheese Bar, a Whole Hog Throwdown, and a Live Nacho Bar” just to name a few.  See the entire menu **here.**

3. We Will Let Cam and Peyton Pass The Football, But Can You Pass The Wings?

So yes, the Super Bowl is the biggest football game of the year.  But what fun would it be without everyone’s favorite game time munchies?  We all know that food makes the party, and as usual- trends in game day cuisine are centered on appetizers. Whether you will be hosting the game at your bar or supplying fans with the grub they need, here are some ideas to add a little more flavor to your menu.

4. Get Your Crowd Pumped For the Game With This Playlist

There are those that watch the Super Bowl for the football.  There are those that watch the Super Bowl for the advertisements.  If you are like me, you watch the Super Bowl for the Halftime Show (and for the football…right?!) This year Coldplay will be headlining with the promise of special guests including none other than Beyoncé.  To get your crowd on their feet try this playlist featuring past performers of the epic show, including Michael Jackson, Aerosmith, Guns N’ Roses, and David Bowie.

5. The Advertisements Everyone Will Be Talking About

Who could forget to mention the ads that everyone will be talking about at work on Monday…along with the game winning play of course. This year, a lot of  marketers are choosing to release teasers or trailers for their Super Bowl ads.  If you have a free minute between now and Sunday they are sure to provide you with some comic relief to get you through this busy February weekend.
