    Don't spend a lot of money on a hotel for the Super Bowl unless you are unlucky enough to have been forced to bring your significant other. If you and a bunch of friends are together get cozy and pull up some rug. You'll need money to gamble, to drink and possibly to eat. Well, if you drink enough, those calories might keep you going all weekend. On second thought, have at least a hot dog and pick a Super Bowl party that offers free food with your free drinks. Quick, find a cheap hotel.

    Don't be fooled by the promises of scantily clad waitresses and party favors. What you need is food, drink and large televisions. Unless you are hockey fan and just along for the party.

If you want to watch the game consider a place like Casa Di Amore where it is about the party and the ultimate Super Bowl experience. Oh, and food is included!
