The game is of course the reason for the festivities, but it's also about cheering on your team with your friends, checking out the star-studded halftime show and having a reason to celebrate in the middle of winter. But if hosting a party seems a daunting task this year, don't fear: bars are filled to the brim with food and drink specials. Win or lose, you can still have fun and let someone else worry about filling your friends' glasses.
