There’s no reason to skimp on quality snacks just because your 2021 Super Bowl celebration will be super small.
Plenty of San Antonio restaurants are embracing the idea of “home gating,” a trend born from the COVID-19 pandemic that has sports fans holding smaller, socially distanced soirees at home.
For this weekend’s big game, consider swinging by a local restaurant to pick up a Super Bowl package full of tasty eats.
This SA-based vegan restaurant chain is offering Pollo Party packages with enough Chik’n strips, Chik’n Caesar wraps, Buffalo Chik’n or Chik’n Caesar salads, kettle chips and signature sauces to feed an army. Well, an army of 20-25. Project Pollo, Multiple Locations, projectpollo.com.
