If you're not pulling for either the Saints or the Colts on Sunday — and maybe even if you are — the Super Bowl may very well be all about the food (and the commercials, of course).
Las Vegas restaurants and bars are pulling out all the stops to provide the most fabulous tailgate-esque spreads you can imagine. There will be hotdogs, nachos and wings as far as the eye can see and ice cold drinks to wash them down. Check out the plethora of options for optimal Super Bowl viewing and eating.
