It’s okay, you’re allowed to be a little bummed about the Super Bowl this year. Actually, a lot. But if you are planning to watch on Sunday February 2nd and don’t want to jockey for a bar stool, here are some places that will ensure you have a delicious time from the comfort of your own couch (besides, no one will get grossed out watching you eat wings and lick your fingers, or cut you off at the bar, hic).

Do yourself a favor and order some sandwiches from ~MERIGAN SUB SHOP~. Their usual menu will be available for takeout or delivery, plus larger-format subs for groups are available by preorder. Italian combo, FTW! They’ll be open 12pm-5pm on Sunday. 626 2nd St. at Brannan, 415-536-2991.

~4505 MEATS~ has several items to keep your party delicious, including Magic Bacon Bombs (that’s jalapeños stuffed with chorizo queso and wrapped in 4505’s bacon for $2 each), charcuterie platters in various sizes ($50-$200), and smoked chicken wings ($6.50 per pound). All items will be available on Saturday February 1st and Sunday February 2nd at their store and farmers’ markets (except the Bacon Bombs, which will only be available at the store). Also note that the store will be open on Sunday from 11am-3pm. 1909 Mission St. at 15th St., 415-525-4239.

Of course ~WING WINGS~ is your best friend this Sunday. They’ve got a special Super Bowl menu on offer, with party sandwich packs, jumbo chicken wing orders, and sides. And remember, they deliver! Order now, though.

~HI LO~ is offering a serious feast to get you through the day: for $175 you get one pound each of pulled pork and brisket, an entire rack of ribs, sausages, three double orders of sides, a jar of pickles, and pull-apart rolls. Make sure to order by 2pm Saturday February 1st! 415-874-9921.

For a major taco spread, look to ~TACOLICIOUS~ for all your catering needs. They’ve got three options to choose from: the taco bar ($12 per person), the make-your-own-taco 12-pack (starts at $52), and their housemade telmoritos ($9 for a bag, serves six). Email them for more information and to order.

If you’re in the North Bay, head to ~COPITA~ for lots of to-go options designed to serve four to six sports fans. There’s a 10-layer black bean dip ($12) or bacon guacamole ($9), queso fundido with tortillas and your choice of oyster mushrooms or chorizo ($15), or carne con chile ($14). Check out all the choices and ordering instructions here. 739 Bridgeway at Anchor, 415-331-7400.

Finding yourself low on liquor but can’t pull yourself away from the television? ~LASSO~ is here to help. They deliver wine, beer, and spirits to locations in San Francisco, along with grocery items like cheese plates, cookies, chips, and salsa.
