Some 100 million people plan to watch the Super Bowl, and many would prefer to do so as part of a crowd and with a selection of treats (culinary and alcoholic) at their disposal.
Watching at home just won’t do.
In Kansas City, those folks will have plenty of options for the Feb. 1 game between the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots. The game won’t kick off in Glendale, Ariz., until about 5:30 p.m. our time, but the fun will begin hours earlier.
