Let's get our focus off of crime and weather and back onto food and restaurants for a while!
I have the same problem every year for the big game: it starts just after our usual supper time, so if I serve a supper-type dish (like chili or hearty nachos) then we are too full to enjoy the usual snacks during the rest of the many hours we'll spend in front of the tube. We're not big drinkers ... just soft drinks and maybe a glass of wine.
I'd be interested in hearing how more experienced noshers handle the "holiday." I see so much hype about dips and snacks and hot hors d'oeurves ... I'd like to try some new things. Thanks for the help.
