Even though the Giants bit it well before the playoffs, there are still plenty of reasons to get pumped for this weekend?s Super Bowl--should you be cheering for the Ravens, the Niners, the commercials or (really, let?s be honest) Beyoncé. Needless to say, serious snacks are in order.
If you?re hosting friends at your place for the big game, here are some easy takeout ideas.
Uptown Football and nachos don?t always have to go hand in hand. For a lighter spin, Luke?s Lobster will drop off a choice spread of half or whole rolls with no delivery charge (for orders over $200). Just call 24 hours in advance. 242 E. 81st St., 212-249-4241; 426 Amsterdam Ave., 212-877-8800
Downtown Meet the Buckets O? Balls: The Meatball Shop?s weekend deal, which is 25 bites of any type (including the special buffalo chicken) and sauce on the side ($40). Pick it up on Saturday from 12 to 8 p.m. or Sunday from 12 to 6 p.m. And don?t forget the toothpicks. 64 Greenwich Ave., 212-982-7815; 84 Stanton St., 212-982-8895
Brooklyn Let Park Slope?s Bark Hot Dogs do all the work. It has a full catering menu (priced per person) and can deliver burgers, sliders, dogs, sides, dessert and even booze with about three days? notice. 474 Bergen St., 718-789-1939
