Melinda Sheckells, lifestyle and entertainment expert and editor of OffTheStrip.com, shares recommendations on what to eat and drink this week in Las Vegas.

It’s almost time for the Big Game on February 7 and what you are going to be eating is nearly as important as watching the teams who are playing. Here are three tasty options to ensure you score a culinary touchdown.

Dine in or Take Out at Tailgate Social in Palace Station

Tailgate Social the new sports bar from Clique Hospitality in Palace Station Hotel & Casino with more than 30 televisions, is offering dine in and takeout. If you are partying at home, pre-order and load up on a to-go meal with finger food favorites such as chips and salsa, pretzel bites, chicken quesadillas, loaded nachos, pizza and wings. The pizza is to-die-for at Tailgate. This sampler is available for parties from 4 to 8 and is priced from $60 to $115. And because it’s impossible to not be thirsty while watching the Super Bowl, this deal includes a pack of Corona Premier or Bud Light. Pick up your feast on Sunday, February 7 between 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. before the game. For those looking to dine in, doors open at 2:30 p.m. with kick-off at 3:30 p.m. Tables require a $65 food and beverage minimum.

Enter the Portal at Area15

Area15’s The Portal showcases the “Game Day 360” experience, transporting guests into the middle of the Big Game with immersive audiovisual 360-degree, projection-mapped walls. Cheer on your team while enjoying a menu curated by Todd English. This is packed with entertainment from the pre-game to half-time surprises and lounge-style seating with tableside service. Guests can reserve a table for four people with a food and beverage minimum starting at $500.

Don’t Try this at Home

… And by don’t we mean do … when legendary sports bar Chickie’s & Pete’s opens at Sahara Las Vegas later this year, Philly cheesesteak lovers will flock to the locale for their shaved ribeye blended with special cheese sauce. But until then you can make it at home. OnTheStrip.com shares the recipe here just in time for game day fun.
