What to Eat During the Super Bowl (With a Map, No Less)

Sure, the Jets' loss the other week was pretty crushing. But some time has passed and now we're finally able to confront the fact that, yes, the Super Bowl will still be happening this Sunday (even if Rex Ryan won't be on the sidelines when it does). But we're looking on the bright side! Since New York no longer has a horse in this race, we're going to be able to pay far more attention to the food we'll be stuffing down our gullets during the game. And that means we'll have to be eating something better than mediocre wings and soggy nachos. On that note, we've rounded up our picks for some of the best game-day deals out there. Check out all of our picks and then chart your plan of attack with the map, below.
