The Main Dish

So many delicious choices! You can check out this menu and let the Barbecue team at Oliver’s grill for you (from 11-4 on February 11), or grab your own  Oliver’s Natural Pork Baby Back Ribs, ($4.99/lb.) or Oliver’s Choice 100% Angus Trimmed Tri Tip, ($9.99/lb.) and do your own grilling.

If you want a more interactive meal that you can prepare in advance (and spend more time watching the game!), consider a Chili Bar with all the fixings, a Taco Bar (You can get it at Oliver’s for groups of ten or more), or even a Baked Potato bar with an array of toppings.

A Potluck main meal can also be fun and allows everyone to contribute, whether you set a menu theme or make it freestyle.

Just Desserts

It’s always nice to offer something sweet to wrap up the meal and party, and for game day it should be simple and straightforward. Something traditional and easy is in order. Oliver’s Bakery will have game day cakes and cupcakes, and it’s hard to go wrong with an assortment of fresh Oliver’s Own Cookies. If you want to be a little fancy, you could put out the makings for Brownie Sundaes and let guests create their own final bite of the evening.

Whether you leave the cooking to us, or prefer to do it on your own, or with the help of your guests, we hope you will count on Oliver’s to create a winning party strategy. May your favorite team win!
