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.
