The Super Bowl game each year is a most anticipated event, especially for the men! It is another excuse to get together with friends and family, drink too much wine and beer, and over indulge on Super Bowl Snacks.
It is typical for lots of Restaurants with bar areas, bars, and Casino's to hold special game day events! Below, I'll list some of the places in the Truckee and Lake Tahoe area that are have special events.
On February 7, 2016, it is the ?? vs. ?? team (TBD). They will be playing in Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, CA.
The most games have been won by the Pittsburgh Steelers, who have won six games! The San Francisco 49ers have won five games.

To me, as a "girl", I'm typically more interested in hanging out with
family and friends rather than watching the game. The commercials, and
half time show is what I look forward to! The commercials are usually
fantastic. Below, I put a couple of my favorites:
This first one is from Honda, promoting their 2012 Honda CR-V which looks like a great car. (I had a Honda CR-V for awhile, until I was overcome with a mid-life crisis and wanted to drive a sports car instead). The video is called, "Matthew's Day Off" which is a take off on Matthew Broderick's, famous Ferris Bueller's Day Off Movie that he did years ago. In this Extended version of the commercial, Matthew calls in sick from work, then jams around town in his new Honda CRV, and at one point, runs into his boss on the road. I thought it was pretty hilarious!
This next commercial was an awesome one from the past, from Budweiser with their beautiful horses, and it was made as a great tribute honoring the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attack on New York.
Here are some of the events that I know about in the Truckee and Lake Tahoe area - if you know of any others, please let me know and I can include them:
The information below was written by my sister Kerry of Healthy Diet Habits, and will be helpful if you are throwing a party in your home:
Super bowl food and recipes abound! Packaged chips, high fat dips, "Little Smokies," and any other high fat food that catches your eye is a must! You’ve been doing a great job with your New Years Diet Resolutions, but rules are meant to be broken! Not so! There are many delectable snack ideas worthy of a football party that will delight everyone. Who wants the Monday morning food hangover anyway!!
Your Super Bowl snacks should be colorful; full of fruits and vegetables rather than colorful chips! Stick with fresh real foods that are not processed, and you will feel a whole lot better on Monday!
