Prep Your Man Cave For The Big Game Party
by Dakota Storage Buildings, on January 31, 2017
The most anticipated football game of the year is only a few days away.
Whether you're excited about the Big Game, the memorable commercials, or just spending time with friends, it's time to start thinking about where you're going to see the Game. How about hosting this year?
Planning a party for the big game doesn’t have to be stressful. As long as everyone has a seat and the food keeps coming, your game day celebration is sure to be a winner.
Prep your man cave for the Big Game
Make sure your antenna, cable, or satellite dish is functioning properly and confirm that you'll be able to receive the channel in your area that is broadcasting the Game.
Another viewing option is to use a video projector. This option can deliver a huge screen size, which is great for a large group, but the setup requirements are different than that of a TV.
For tips in setting up or purchasing a home theatre system, TV reception, or audio considerations when using a video projector, read Home Theater System for a High Definition Super Bowl.
Make sure no one misses a beat. Think about DVRing the game for easy replays of the game and commercials. You’ll be able to rewind and re-watch your favorite plays and commercials or catch up on what you missed while preparing food or refilling drinks.
How many people are you trying to fit in your space?
Ensuring you have plenty of seating options is a crucial part of game day party planning. Count each seat that you already have in place (your couch, recliner, bar stools, etc.), then add a folding chair (or bean bag chair!) for each additional guest. Either put the chairs where you want them to be placed or simply have them available for guests to grab.
They key here is to have plenty of seating. While everyone is excited about the game, they're likely not excited about standing room only.
If you have folding tables or portable TV trays, set them out for guests to use, too. The last thing you want is for a guest to put their soda cup on the floor where it could be kicked over or forgotten.
The Big Game is not complete without food! You can keep it simple with pizza, pretzels, chips, dips, or plan a larger more expansive spread. As you plan, remember that finger foods are ideal. No one wants to mess with utensils if they don't have to. Prepare Buffalo wings, sliders, a DIY nacho bar, or just about anything that includes that oh-so-magical ingredient: bacon.

Buy plenty of individually packaged drinks or disposable cups. If you want guests to reuse cups, don't forget to place several sharpie markers near the drink station so each person can write their name on a cup. Additionally, buy plenty of paper or plastic plates and napkins. If you can find them, get disposable cups and plates in your teams’ colors.
Place a garbage can or two near the food so people can toss out their trash when they’re done.
