Facebook/50 Yard Lounge
On Feb. 2, the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos will battle it out in New York City in the biggest football game of the year, and The 50 Yard Lounge is where football fans will eat, drink, watch football, and more during the week leading up to the Super Bowl.
Offering the best bites of the city from acclaimed restaurants and chefs, the opportunity to meet football legends, including Joe Theismann, and celebrity chefs, such as Marc Forgione, and of course, the ultimate Super Bowl experience, The 50 Yard Lounge will host food, football, and entertainment from Jan. 29 to Feb. 2 from 8:30 a.m. to midnight.
Every day will feature a different culinary theme, including “Welcome to New York,” “Around the World in a Day,” and “Time to Tailgate,” with food specially catered to that theme. Tickets for the event cost $260 per person and can be purchased here.
