America’s biggest sporting event is undeniably the NFL Super Bowl! Every year families and friends gather around the tube on the first Sunday night of February, to watch the game, catch the infamous commercials, eat up on platters of finger foods, and put money on boxes. The Super Bowl is this Sunday and the staff at Petschauer Insurance wants to share with you some their traditions and advice.
Game Day Advice:
"We all know people like to drink for the games, so make sure everyone has a designated driver or takes a cab to get home. Drunk driving endangers everyone involved from the driver, passenger, and the host of the party!" - Karen Skoler, Commercial Lines Manager
If you plan on setting up boxes for the game, make sure that all rules are set in place before kickoff! This will prevent any confusion or mistakes when it comes to paying out the winners. - Sherri Consentino, Personal Lines Account Executive
"If you're hosting the party, don't put all of the pressure on yourself when it comes to deciding what food and beverages to serve. When inviting guests ask them to bring some of their favorite food and drinks. This way you not only have a variety but, you as the host, can join in on the laughter and fun as well! Suggesting that everyone bring something unique can add to the festivities!" - Daniel Bonilla, Social Media Coordinator
