5 things your watch party needs for the big game

A Big TV

This is arguably the biggest game of the year, with the two best teams playing.  (Well…Sort of.  It’s a long story.  Ask a Saints fan.)

This is a great time to buy a new TV, because all of the newer models are about to start coming out soon, and brands should be dropping their prices on the older models.  You can already grab a great deal at some places, like this 65″ Vizio 4K Smart TV at Walmart for $898, which matches its Black Friday sale price.

Team Gear

Watching the Super Bowl without picking someone to root for is no fun — get some gear and root for whichever bandwagon you decide to hop on!  If you do grab some gear, you might as well shop local, and TNC Sports in Bartlett has got you covered.

Food & Drink

If you’re looking for some simple ideas, check out all these different things you can do with Pancho’s Cheese Dip.  If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, why not try ordering bulk from a local restaurant like Central BBQ?  They have packs that feed 6-12 people, and it comes with all the fixings.


Go all out with some cool DIY football decorations, like these nifty coasters!  If you want to really impress your guests, you can tackle the decorations and food and drink in one fell swoop, like this Snackadium.

Friends and Family

What good is a watch party for the big game if you don’t invite your friends and family over to enjoy it with?  You’re going to need someone to either celebrate with or console you in case things don’t go your way.  If you aren’t choosing a side to root for, try inviting friends over who root for both teams.  It will definitely make things more dramatic, especially if there is a close game.
