Super Bowl XLVII: Top Spots to Watch and Eat

This weekend brings Super Bowl XLVII. While you take a moment to try to figure out what that means, we’ll go ahead and tell you all you need to know. It’s time for high-stakes football, expensive commercials and delicious food!! Parties That Cook’s San Francisco team couldn’t be happier to see our San Francisco 49ers returning to the ultimate American football game since their last visit in 1994. If you’re still trying to find the perfect place to watch the game and enjoy great fare, look no further. We’ve tracked down some of the hottest places in each of our cities to eat, drink and cheer our team to victory. Below, in no particular order, are our recommendations for spots sure to deliver the full game experience with fantastic food, thirst quenching drinks and plenty of televisions to ensure you don’t miss a moment of the action.

Parties That Cook Takes Over a San Francisco Giants Game!

The sun was shining and our warehouse was bustling, but for once, the food was arriving and not leaving! Last week, the Parties That Cook team came together for a potluck tailgate party before heading over to AT&T park to support their San Francisco GIANTS! Tensions were high, as the Giants were playing the LA Dodgers (BOO!) in one of the first games of this season!

If you’re wondering what to make for your next tailgate or game day gathering, each dish below helped make this the Best Tailgate Ever! …Just sayin’.

PTC staff and a few lucky guests arrived at around 4 o’clock for the tailgate madness!
