Are you ready for some FOOTBALL? The game is only a little over a week away and even if your team didn’t make it to the Superbowl, it is still fun and exciting to watch. Some look forward to the half-time show, others the commercials but we all are excited for the food. On average about 8 million pounds of avocados are sold for the big game day. A new butcher shop, A Cut Above, just opened in Santa Monica, with a huge selection of meats for your grill. Or you can make it easy on yourself and order food to go. West 4th and Jane has an excellent selection of wings, they are especially plump and come with interesting sauce choices; buffalo, fire buffalo, watermelon BBQ , ginger Sriracha, and tongue searing mango habanero. The Slice wings are super crunchy and loaded with sauce, choose from mild, medium or hot; you can even opt for boneless.
Don’t have a Superbowl party invite? There are several great places to watch the game in Santa Monica, Barney’s Beanery known to have numerous TV’s around the restaurant and plenty of bar food to keep you occupied. Rick’s Tavern on Main has delicious wings, sliders and various cold brews. Busby’s West, has several big tv’s, large booths and quite an extensive menu.
