Secret to Super Bowl Party Setup Success
If you're going to have a combination of football lovers and those who just like to eat and hang out with their friends at your party, you'll need to make sure that you have designated areas for game watching and socializing. Those who are concerned with watching the game will likely gravitate to the largest television set, and the others are likely to hang out in the vicinity of the food.
If you have a small TV set in your kitchen, set up the food on your kitchen counter. People who aren't really concentrating on the game will be perfectly happy with the small television. Those who are focused on the game can pop into the kitchen during commercial breaks without having to worry about missing any of the televised coverage.
