2) On the other hand, if you're too good for anything resembling sports food, how about Tresle on Tenth? "Forget about chicken wings for your Super Bowl snacking?this is the year of Crispy Duck Necks," so says their PR, Steven "don't call me Arsenio" Hall. More:

Come pick up a mound of crispy duck necks for Super Bowl XLII on Sunday February 3 at Trestle on Tenth from noon until 8 PM. Haven’t eaten our crispy duck necks before? Necks (which have the sweetest meat on the duck) are braised until falling-off-the-bone tender, then rolled in bread crumbs and fried until golden crisp. We serve them with a savory garlic and anchovy sauce that makes grown men cry for more.

Perhaps you are already a crispy duck neck aficionado who orders the dish when you dine with us. But this year on February 3, as the un-official supplier of duck necks for Super Bowl XLII, Trestle on Tenth will offer the crispy goodies to go!

You may not be aware that more than one player (and a jeer leader or two) on each of this year’s competing teams has secretly been eating crispy duck necks for extra strength and endurance. We cannot reveal the names of these players---sorry!---but we can assure you that our duck necks do impart superhuman powers, especially when consumed with a cold beer while watching a football game.)

So preorder your own hot crispy duck neck pieces, served by the dozen for $16, and pick them up, or come in and order them to-go on Super Bowl Sunday.

Crispy duck necks can be reheated to prime crunchiness in a 400F oven or in the microwave for 45 seconds. Be sure to have plenty of napkins on hand because this is pick-up-with-your-hands and munch-off-the-bones kind of eating!

3) Pack to the stuff that going to do its job of blocking a hangover, POP Burger uptown (58th and 5th Ave), "will have the Big Game live on seven projection screens around the 2nd and 3rd floors?there will be the Blue Giant cocktail (cachaca, blue curacao, orange, sugar, lime, soda) for $12. Pool on the 3rd Floor. Lounge and bar seating throughout?It’s the Super Bowl for the design-minded set?"

Later today, Blue Smoke, Ruby Foo's, Balthazar and more.
