Sweet mother of queso, The Big Game is almost upon us. At Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, we’ve waited all season for this moment. And by “waited all season,” we, of course, mean “watched every single game while devouring tacos and beeritas every Sunday since August.” It’s been a pleasant fall and winter, honestly.
But now it’s time for the ultimate showdown.
We’ve got Denver squaring off against nearly undefeated Carolina in what hopefully is a match-up made in football heaven. But even if it isn’t, you’re going to be OK. Because while we at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop are excited to see The Big Game unfold, we’re equally — if not more — excited to prepare for it.
This isn’t your buddy’s poker night, when ho-hum bean dip and corn chips will suffice. This is one of the biggest games of the year, and you’ve got to do it justice. Don’t fret. We’re here to lend a helping hand. Here are our tips for prepping for The Big Game:
Pick up Fuzzy’s on the way
Aside from the football and the commercials, the spread is the most important part of the day. And it’s often the product of chaos, with no one really coordinating ahead of time and just bringing whatever they think will go over well.
Well, instead of bringing those deviled eggs or pigs in a blanket, swing by Fuzzy’s and grab some chips and salsa or one of our other awesome appetizers (or any of our other menu items) and become a hero before the game even starts. You won’t be MVP of The Big Game, but you’ll at least be MVP of the party, and that’s something to be proud of.
Get your party catered
If you’re hosting the watching part at your place, get the shindig catered by Fuzzy’s. That way, when that one friend brings asparagus wrapped in some sort of deli meat, you can politely set it aside and know that the rest of your guests are covered.
50 for the 50th
This is the 50th anniversary of The Big Game. Get a little creative and order everything in increments of 50. We mean, why not? Fifty tacos are certain to go over well. Go with 50 burritos if your friends are on the hungrier side.
Set up rules before The Big Game starts so that each event in the game is worth a certain task. For example:
- First down = take a bite of your taco
- Field goal = three chips covered in salsa
- Touchdown = finish your taco
- Pick-six = finish your burrito
You get the idea.
And if you happen to be rooting for one team but know that others attending the party are rooting for the other team, you can always get just enough tacos to feed just the friends on your side. That’ll teach ’em.
Kidding! We can all get along when it comes to tacos, right?
One more week! Get to planning, Fuzzy-heads.
