With people in Deerfield planning Super Bowl parties Sunday, Deerfield residents have plenty of choices from buying an assortment of snack food and beverages and local grocery stores to catering their own event.
Places like Dominick’s, and are offering promotions on snack food and beverages for those who want to do their own party from scratch. People can add baked goods, vegetables and dips to their platters.
For those who want a fully catered affair, can put the entire affair together for pickup or delivery, according to General Manager Robert Lapata.
“For our customers who want to use our take out menu, we have deli platters, buckets and wings, everything on our catering menu,” Lapata said. “We do encourage people to order in advance.”
People who want pizza from or ribs from will not be disappointed though ordering ahead of time may be a good idea. “It’s one of our busiest carry out days of the year,” Chris Causey of Il Forno said.
Pizza is the mainstay of many Super Bowl parties and there is good reason. Super Bowl Sunday may not actually be the biggest day of the year for pizza sales, but it's always in the top five, says Jeremy White, the editor-in-chief of Pizza Today magazine.
“Halloween, the day before Thanksgiving and Super Bowl Sunday are all big days for pizza,” White said. “It varies from year to year, with New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day rounding out the top five days."
At any rate, White is certainly a big advocate of ordering a few pies to enhance your Super Bowl viewing enjoyment.
“You definitely want to have pizza and a few good drinks on hand to avoid any letdown in game,” White joked.
While most places will be offering their normal take out menu, will be selling a large pizza for $9.99 rather than $14.99.
Tomorrow Patch will feature restaurants treating customers to their own Super Bowl parties.
