Every year, football fans across the country gather for chicken wings and barrels of beer in celebration of the Super Bowl. While New Yorkers may still be fuming over the forgettable seasons posted by the Giants and Jets (but at least the future looks promising with Saquon Barkley and Sam Darnold), there’s certainly no shortage of parties, events, beer and Super Bowl snacks in New York City to enjoy as the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots face off in Super Bowl LIII.
