It’s that time of year again! The biggest event in the NFL off-season is almost here, and that means it’s time to gather with friends and family for a celebration. These parties are more than just gatherings; they are celebrations of football fandom across America! While we don’t know who is for sure in the big game this year, we do know that Las Vegas’s Allegiant Stadium will be host to the main event.

Regardless of what team is playing, everyone comes together because this game is about more than just who wins or loses; it’s about bringing people together through shared experiences and memories that last long after the final whistle blows. Every year friends and family alike gather around our TVs to watch the event. While some of you may be there for the actual game, a large chunk of us are there to watch the infamous halftime show. This year’s performer is Usher, and if you’re a millennial like me you might be getting ready to relive those early 00s vibes. 

One other big thing we can’t forget about is the food. That’s right, we all know that the whole reason to get together is for the insanely good munchies. I tend to gravitate towards the buffalo chicken dip and sliders, but every gathering is different. All that to say, if you’re hosting this year’s big event you definitely want to check out our list below. Make your big football party one to remember, and take a browse through some of our favorite must-haves!
