Whether you’re a hard core Denver or Carolina fan, ready to pick a side for the day because it wasn’t your team’s year, or you’re just in it for the commercials and party, this Sunday ranks up there with the most American of holidays…a celebration of sport and football on the surface, but really an excuse to invite over all your friends and throw the biggest party of the year so far. Then you can sit back and relax in a pair of comfortable Skech-Air Infinity sneakers.
You probably have the basics sorted by now. A wide variety of drinks of course are a given. You’ve got your chips and dips. Fresh veggies and more dips. Crackers, cheese…and even more dips. (That’s a lot of dips!) But if you want to really step up your party game, you’ll need to do more prep. A favorite game time snack is buffalo wings—but to do it right we’re not talking the frozen stuff that comes in a bag. Make a few batches of fresh wings from scratch and you’ll have people talking about it well after the trophy ceremony after the game. Alton Brown’s recipe is a great foundation to start with that will ensure your final product is perfectly crispy and tasty. His steam render then baking on a wire rack technique has won rave reviews. Then, when they’re done, you can tailor the sauce to add your own personal flare. Serve them up with blue cheese dressing (technically not a sauce) and they’ll be gone by halftime.
The best parties are about more than just the snacks! Lace up your Relaxed Fit shoes and get outside to toss the pigskin. If you’ve got a few generations of friends and family over, you can even play your own version of the game with dad in the old school soon-to-retire veteran role vs the hotshot twentysomething QB with the new school does-it-all mentality. Get the kids involved too! If the game on TV is a blowout, this might be more fun than watching!
