Do you prepare anything special for the Superbowl?

I always have, but last year I didn't even watch. I may not this year either. It really hurts right now to be a Seattle sports fan. I've just been hiding in the kitchen on Sundays this year =)

We are at our timeshare in Aruba every year for the Super Bowl. A group of 10-15 couples chip in and we have a party on the pool deck outside our apartments. We have a big screen TV and plenty of food and drink.

We sell squares for $5.00 each and pay cash prizes at the end of each quarter.

We are on vacation so don't spend a lot of time cooking and preparing appetizers. We buy prepared appetizers, chips and dips and burgers and brats at the local supermarket. There are gas grills for us to use.

Chili and finger foods. Little sandwiches, chicken fingers, mini pigs in a blanket, chips & dip, veggie platter & dip, buffalo wings, babyback ribs, sweet & sour meatballs. But most of all the main ingredient is beer on ice. We move our party from house to house each year, and sometimes we rent the Legion Hall when there are too many of us. This has been the case over the last three years we have had around 50 peeps. I have a meeting with my Superbowl Party buddys this weekend to go over plans to make it unique for this year.

We are hosting a Super Shindig at our place this year and are in the initial planning stages. I'm expecting around 10-20 (or so) people and plan to serve some traditional food (chili, chips/dips, wings, etc) but I'm kinda stumped on the games/activities. I like the idea of selling squares and awarding cash prizes per quarter but, alas, I am quite clueless as to how this works (can you believe it?).

I am interested in receiving (either here or by PM) clear directions of how to set up and play the squares thing and any other games people might suggest.

Thanks, Z

edited to add: I also like to make jalepenos, sliced and stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in bacon, covered in cracked black pepper and roasted... always a hit.

Wow sounds like a good time! It is just my husband and I so we don't do much. I usually make a chilli dip with jalepenos. I've heard of a buffalo chicken dip that sounds good.


Anything you want to bring will be perfect Bob.

How do you make these? I had stuffed jalepenos once and they were so good. I love cream cheese. And bacon...
