In case you missed our last post filled with all that February has to offer, fret not…our concierges have put their heads together for a comprehensive guide to last-minute Super Bowl planning (and even our favorite ways to avoid it). There’s still time to take advantage, so read on. Sometimes it pays to procrastinate.
LIV IT UP
It’s no secret that half the fun of the Super Bowl is the parties that surround it (the other being the halftime show). If you’re traveling out to Houston to see the action firsthand, ask your concierge about VIP access to the most coveted tickets in town: Maxim and Rolling Stone. And if you haven’t sorted out your travel plans yet, it’s not too late…your concierge can handle the details at a moment’s notice.
Tickets and travel accommodations subject to availability (we have to say that, but we’re known to make magic happen).
PLAY THE FIELD
If you’re staying on your home turf this weekend, there are plenty of spots in the city that’ll be at the ready with a big screen and an equally sizeable brew to boot. Gather the troops and head to our favorite screening destinations, complete with HD, IPA, and all the other acronyms necessary for Super Bowl Sunday.
Empellón Al Pastor, 132 Saint Mark’s Place
Pork tacos and pigskins…Alex Stupak and co. know how throw a Super Bowl party. Opt for the unlimited ticket.
Westlight (at The William Vale), 111 N 12th Street
Pair your view of the action with an unbeatable view of the city alongside Chef Andrew Carmellini’s game day buffet 22 stories above city level.
Eli’s Night Shift, 189 E 79th Street
Yes, that Eli (Zabar). This Upper East Side gem is the perfect combination of cafe vibes and projector capabilities (there’s a screen that pulls down over a refrigerator wall, if that’s any indication).
Contact your concierge for details and ticket procurement where applicable.
AGAINST THE GRAIN
Not a sports fan? There’s always something for everyone in NYC, and Super Bowl Sunday is no exception. Avoid the jersey-sporting crowds by booking a brunch reservation through your concierge before checking out the last day of the Valrhona Hot Chocolate Festival or heading to the Lunar New Year parade.
Stay tuned for more concierge favorites throughout February and beyond.
