It’s time for everyone in America to drink and eat hot wings while watching a football game between two teams that the vast majority of them don’t give a crap about. Yay!
Here’s how to do the Super Bowl in Philly:
What: Super Bowl XLIX
Who: Seattle Seahawks vs. New England Patriots
Where: University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.
When: 6:30 p.m. Sunday, with coverage starting at noon
How to watch from your home
If you prefer to watch via cable, NBC will have coverage of the Super Bowl available throughout the day. If you’re a cord cutter, NBC has announced that it’s making the Super Bowl free to watch via its live web app — and it’ll be free to everyone, not just people who have already bought subscriptions with certain cable providers.
In addition to NBC, Comcast also announced that it’ll be streaming the Super Bowl live online for free.
What food to order if you’re watching from home
Philadelphia Eater pulled together a fantastic list of spots where you can get awesome take-out for the Super Bowl, whether it’s brats and German favs from Wursthaus Schmitz or trays of pizza al taglio from Pizzeria Vetri. Most of the restaurants require some advance notice for game day take-out, so check it out ASAP.
