Super Bowl 50 in Jersey City!

superbowl50Super Bowl 50 (the NFL is suspending Roman Numerals for this year’s big game) overtakes America this year on Sunday, February 7th at 6:30pm ET. The Carolina Panthers and The Denver Broncos  will face off at Levi’s Stadium (home of the San Francisco 49ers) in Santa Clara, California.

The ultimate sporting event calls upon us to attend viewing parties everywhere. If you are hosting one, here are some of my game-day recipes, as well as tips for etiquette.

If you’d rather take it to commercial real estate in Jersey City, here is a list of venues hosting the big game, courtesy of nj.com.

Superbowl XLVIII 2014 Jersey City!!!

Superbowl XLVIII is happening here, Jersey City!

No, seriously, both teams are staying in our great city, and as part of the Volunteer Host Committee, I will be in one of those hotels on gameday…as well as participating in other activities during this week before the event.

The Media will start arriving on Sunday, January 26th. Fellow followers, grip yourselves: The area’s already overcrowded population will increase MUCH. Our small businesses are going to thrive and our citizens are going to enjoy all of the excitement (or be bothered by the influx of hyped outsiders) in the cold. 

I decided, rather than do  my usual personal research and write-up of everything, to make a montage of info already out there and put it here in one place. I’ll continue to update my site as I get more tips from all of you! Send to: jerseycitygia@gmail.com
