No matter your team allegiances, there’s one thing we can all agree on: The true star of the Big Game is the food! Over the course of the evening, Americans consume more than 1.25 billion chicken wings, 120 million pounds of avocado, 4 million pizzas, and 50 million cases of beer.
Just looking at those numbers makes our eyes droop in belly-rubbing, salty satisfaction.
Hosting the Big Game can be a really big deal. Depending on the crowd, you need a great place to lay out the spread, seating for all, and outdoor spaces for superfans to cool down after a frustrating play. Not every host can handle the pressure, and not every home is up to snuff.
Don’t get blindsided by a bad game plan. Here are five MVP homes for hosting an unbeatable Big Game feast:
