Favorite local picks for the Big Game festivities
Roseville, Calif.- This Sunday at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, the Rams take on the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl 56. The unofficial national holiday of $7 million dollar commercials, food and drink and a little football.
When it comes to celebrating, there are countless options from the basics of chips and brews to elaborate feasts of indulgence. When it comes to some Super Bowl classics, here’s a few local favorites that make the cut. Tell us your picks here!
Celestino’s in Rocklin
Hands down, Celestino’s in Rocklin is the closest New York/New Jersey style pizza we’ve encountered in the Sacramento region. IF pizza isn’t your thing, Celestino’s offers plenty of tasty Italian classics!
Subs / Sandwiches
With several locations in South Placer, Jersey Mike’s is a welcome sight for the growing East Coast transplants looking for traditional Italian and deli subs. Our top pick is the Turkey sub, made “Mike’s Way” of course!
Lucille’s Smokehouse BBQ
Southern style family BBQ is always a hit for almost any large gathering. A BBQ order from Lucille’s Smokehouse BBQ in Rocklin with tasty sides and all the fixin’s says Super Bowl Party.
A cold beer or two…or three is a Super Bowl must for many during football season. Placer County boasts some exceptional craft brews that make it easy to ditch the mass marketed corporate beer. Lots of good options here that can be found in local supermarkets and big box stores. More of the wine or spirit crowd, then head over to Total Wine & More for a selection that is out of this world.
Wine & Cheese Crowd
No Super Bowl gathering in California would be complete without a bottle or two of California wine paired with cheese and fruit. We agree with the words of Mick Jagger, “Thank you for your wine, California Thank you for your sweet and bitter fruits.” One of our top picks goes to Nugget Market for those looking to put together a scrumptious Super Bowl spread with a quality Napa or Sonoma wine.
