Super Bowl 2022 is (almost) here, and that means it’s time to eat our weight in nacho cheese, potato skins and ridiculously long party subs. But when you’re an L.A. Rams fan (sorry, Bengals), not just any snack will do. This year, we’re using the fine city of Los Angeles as inspiration for our game day spread, meaning there will be plenty of tacos, doughnuts and avocado fries on the menu. Now, the ultimate question: beery Marys or beergaritas?
