Where To Watch, What To Eat: Your Memphis Super Bowl Guide
Going to stay in and have a house party for the Super Bowl? Great! Going to go out and watch the Patriots take on the Seahawks with your fellow Memphians? Also great!
This post has two sections to help you get ready for the Super Bowl in Memphis. Section #1 is Where To Watch if you want to go out. Section #2 is What To Eat, a list of places where you can get delivery or take-out. Click here to jump to What To Eat.
Super Bowl XLIX between the Patriots and the Sea hawks kicks off at 5:30 p.m. next Sunday, February 1 and will be broadcast on NBC. If you want to give back, look into the Home Team Huddle for Habitat for Humanity.
Since this is meant to be a continuously updated list as more information comes in, there's nothing that's been "left off the list". Add your Super Bowl ideas in the comments, or, if you're a bar/restaurant owner, shoot me an email with the info

Super Bowl = Food = Hot Wings for many people. Here are some (but not all) of the best places in Memphis to get them, in no particular order. Below that is a short list of great places that deliver.
Places That Deliver
Remember: it's the Super Bowl and everyone is going to try to order delivery. Plan ahead and call early if you want to order food next Sunday. If it were me, I'd call these places this week to make sure you're following those individual establishment's Super Bowl protocols. Due to demand, their normal delivery routines may be changed or you may have to place orders days in advance.
– Aldo's and Bardog (downtown only)
– Trolley Stop
– Young Ave. Deli (Cooper Young area only)
– Jet's Pizza
Other Places/Things That Might Be Helpful For Your Super Bowl Sunday Consumption Needs
– Cash Saver for it's cheap beer selection and Madison Filling Station
– Fresh Market, Whole Foods, and the fancier Krogers for their extensive pre-made foods selection
