It's February, the month of love, and we all know what that means... SUPER BOWL TIME, BABY.
Perhaps you're staying in and planning the ultimate tiny apartment Super Bowl Party. But if you're like me, you don't own a TV, and you're looking for the biggest HD screen to best enjoy Hamilton's original Schuyler Sisters' pre-show performance and GaGa's halftime show.
Or maybe you want to publicly munch on some wings while you see who pulled out all the stops in their commercial campaigns.
Or maybe, bless your soul, you actually care about football.
Whatever attracts you to America's flashiest television extravaganza, we've rounded up some of the best Super Bowl watch parties going down in NYC this year.
