Chips and salsa, or some of those bite-sized brownies.

I've been to a few Super Bowl Parties: I felt like my IQ dropped by 60 points each time. It was unbelievably moronic and boorish.

That's why I don't go, I can't spare the points.

For a superbowl party I would totally take something to drink and maybe some chips and dip or something like that just so you don't show up empty handed.

Have fun!


Yes. Great advice.

We went a couple of years ago, they had great food, drinks, etc. Very nice.

We have never been able to recriprocate but we would like to. We work a lot but someday, we would like to entertain.

We don't want to look like moochers.

Question: Should we bring something even though the host did not answer me on that?
Good rule of thumb. Always bring something as a present for the hosts, even if it's a bottle of wine. And given that it's a football watching party as opposed to a dinner party, things are a little more relaxed.

And if the hosts do not specify what you can bring, then bring something anyway. Simply say, "You never mentioned what I could bring, so I wanted to share my whoopity scoopity cheese dip with you." Unless your host is socially retarded, they'll be grateful for your consideration. And if they're not, I'm not sure I'd hang out with them anyway.

Reminds me of a Super Bowl party that I went to years ago. I'd just taken over a small company (consultant extension) and was away from family and friends, so one of the young employees invited me to her parents' house for the party. I asked what I could bring. "Potato chips and dip!" she answered enthusiastically. So I did, along with a bottle or two of wine.

The following Monday I discovered why I was asked to bring potato chips. The employee was severely overweight and her mother didn't allow potato chips in the house!
