Resorts West offers a special package for football fans
Resorts West is offering a Super Bowl package with a catered game-night party and lift tickets for hitting the slopes.
Thinking about how to celebrate next year’s Super Bowl weekend? For football fans who also enjoys snowy outdoor activities (or simply relaxing in a hot tub), Resorts West has announced an exciting new Super Bowl package.
Guests staying with Resorts West during Super Bowl XLVIII can combine the classic game night with a ski-vacation at one of Park City's three top resorts: Deer Valley Resort, Park City Mountain Resort, or Canyons Resort.
The "Super Bowl on the Slopes" package features accommodations at a luxurious four-bedroom condo — spacious enough for a bigger group — with private hot tub, as well as eight two-day lift tickets to use while not glued to the TV screen. For the game day, guests are provided with a catered party menu by Savoury Kitchen, featuring classic Super Bowl fare, including slow-cooked pork ribs; Savoury Kitchen’s Southern fried chicken with creamy house coleslaw; and a 6-foot "Grinder" with house-made prosciutto, salami, pepperoni, pepperoncini, tomato, sprouts, lettuce, pickled red onions, aioli, and Dijon mustard. For drinks, local brews by Wasatch Brewery and spirits from Utah's High West Distillery will also be included (all attendees must be over the age of 21).
Shuttle service throughout Park City, daily housekeeping, and private concierge service are also all part of the football and ski package, which is available between Jan. 31 and Feb. 3, 2014.

How to host a Super Bowl party
Many people will be holding Super Bowl parties in their homes on Sunday 5 th . Let me share a few ideas to get the party started.
Decorations – Party City is the place to go. You can pick up whole kits that include plates, cups, napkins, table coverings, and decorations. Paper products make for easy clean up when the party is over. Free Shipping on orders of $75+
Drinks – If you have a large crowd coming then investing in a keg might be fun. Alternatively, stock up on an assortment of beers and soft drinks. Keep plenty of ice on hand. Place coolers in strategic areas so that guests can easily help themselves to refills. Oh and remember the bottle openers so that you don’t have to run around after your guests all day.
Food – Here you can have some fun. Making the event a potluck will potentially ease the burden on the host. Alternatively, getting a local company to cater makes it simple. Super Bowl is a busy day for the pizza delivery companies so plan ahead of time if you are thinking of going that route. Here are a couple of my favorite Houston food bloggers with their yummy ideas.
Boneless Buffalo Chicken Bites from Stephanie at CopyKat Recipes. Stephanie started publishing recipes on the web in 1995 just to capture her family favorites. Over the years she has developed many recipes that taste just like restaurant recipes.
Mexican Spinach Dip from Brenda over at Meal Planning Magic. Brenda is a busy mom, foodie and self-taught meal planner who shares tips, ideas, products and recipes that help you save time, save money and eat well.
However, you plan to spend Super Bowl weekend I hope you have a fun-filled weekend. And remember, if you don’t like football then there’s always those commercials to watch out for.

Got cash? Some ways to spend Super Bowl weekend
MIAMI &mdash Private jet service, a personal butler, or how about a meal with former Patriots star Rob Gronkowski to top off Super Bowl weekend? From legendary nightclubs to exclusive parties, no place caters to the rich and famous quite like glitzy Miami.
The city's most luxurious hotels, clubs and restaurants are offering over-the-top packages to entice big spenders looking for action outside the end zone. One package includes a 4-day cruise around the Caribbean on a private yacht after the game for $720,000.
On Location Experiences' Sam Soni says their top Super Bowl package last year in Atlanta went for $17,500. This year's top-tier packages in Miami are $20,000 to $35,000 and include game tickets, a pre-game party and show by Darius Rucker and a chance to mingle with football legends like Dan Marino and Marcus Allen.
"We've seen just unprecedented sales for that product," Soni said. "It's really a three- or four-day event for most of our clients. In Miami having so many options for entertainment and the weather all certainly come into play."
Not all of those enjoying the perks will be paying out of pocket, because many of the high-end packages are purchased by corporations. But On Location says many customers also are wealthy fans who just want to be a part of the experience.
But it's not all gitz and glamour in Miami. Promotions will likely focus on luxurious waterfront skylines and not the poorer neighborhoods of Allapattah, Liberty City and Overtown, where more than three-quarters of residents are low-income or low-to-middle income. Many fans there won't be able to afford even the lower-end tickets priced at $4,400.
Thousands of fans will descend on Miami just for the nightlife and never set foot inside the stadium.
"There's just going to be so many parties. And it's going to take over the city," said David Grutman, the man behind some of South Beach's most exclusive clubs and restaurants including LIV, Story and Swan.
"Miami on its own is always over the top, then you put the Super Bowl on top of it and it's the perfect recipe for decadence and extravagance."
Tables at LIV nightclub are booking for $20,000 during Super Bowl weekend &mdash up from their usual cost of $5,000. Grutman said his steakhouse has more than tripled its order for steaks to 1,000 for Super Bowl week, along with crates of caviar.
Here are some of the blingiest packages for high-rollers:
1. Tables on the patio at Swan restaurant, which Grutman co-owns with singer Pharrell Williams, are going for a minimum of $10,000.
2. VIP tables to the MAXIM magazine party where The Chainsmokers will perform on a private island run around $20,000 unless you want to grab 11 of your closest friends and hitch a ride on a private helicopter for $65,000.
3. Packages at Shaquille O'Neal's Fun House are going for $30,000 to $100,000 with the top package including 20 tickets to the game, a chance to hang with Shaq, your own private security and 30 bottles of champagne and liquor to wash away any buyer's remorse.
4. Hanging with former Patriots star Rob Gronkowski at Gronk Beach will also set you back six figures. His $100,000 package includes 20 game seats and all the amenities including table and bottle service afterward, plus he'll stop by your table for a chat.
5. The swanky 1 Hotel South Beach is offering a $1.5 million package for 20 that includes airfare, game tickets, a private butler, lodging at 10 oceanfront homes, a private dinner and a personal guru. Their cheapest package will set you back $200,000 and includes two tickets on the 50 yard line, a stay at a one-bedroom oceanfront home and field access after the game.
6. Private aviation company NetJets and luxury yacht charter company Northrop & Johnson teamed up to deliver what may be the most indulgent package of all, coming in at a whopping $720,000. Two guests will be flown to Miami in a private jet and put up in a suite at the Ritz Carlton to rest up before game day. After the game, a private jet will whisk you away to the Caribbean where you'll spend four days sailing the tropical islands on a 236-foot, six-stateroom private yacht.___An earlier version of this report had an incorrect spelling of David Grutman's last name.

Why You Should Eat Whatever You Want on Super Bowl Sunday
Another eating holiday is upon us.
This Super Bowl Sunday, Americans will consume 28 millions pounds of chips, 325.5 million gallons of beer, and a frankly astonishing 1.38 billion chicken wings. If you were to dump all the guacamole we’re about to eat atop a full-length football field and spread it out, the depth would reach almost 12 feet.
The first Sunday of February is second only to Thanksgiving as our country’s biggest eating holiday. It’s a conspicuously less healthy brand of eating, too. Thanksgiving isn’t light on the stomach, of course, but its heartiness largely comes from home-cooked meals and wholesome family recipes. For the Super Bowl, a day in which Americans spend an average of $81 on food and drinks, we tend toward heavily processed snacks, salty delivery pizzas and deep-fried chicken. And then to wash it all back, we go full Homer Simpson.
It’s an utterly unnecessary, Olympian display of overconsumption, which leads to a very lackadaisical Monday (14 million Americans skip work the following morning, according to a 2018 survey).
Regardless, we are here to advise you to 100% eat whatever the hell you want this weekend.
Health sites, social-media influencers and medical journals want you to have a healthy Super Bowl. We respectfully disagree. Absentmindedly cowing out while watching a big game with friends and family is a perk of being alive. I’d compare it to ordering a large popcorn when you hit the movie theater once a month: you’re briefly engaging with a world that has nothing to do with your own. As part of that contract, you shouldn’t be stressing about empty or excessive caloric intake.
Besides, people don’t gain weight from one day of binge eating. You literally have to consume an additional 3,500 calories on top of your average daily calorie count in order to gain one pound of fat. You’ll be bloated, sure, but that’s due to water retention high-sodium foods trigger a fluid imbalance, and your body needs more water to process all the crap.
Gaining weight comes from eating like this every time you sit down in front of the TV. As long as you can dissociate the excitement of Super Bowl excess from an everyday routine (which, honestly, we all can, and most of us do) or burn calories like 2010 Michael Phelps to keep your metabolic rate going, you’ll be completely okay.
Not to mention, “moralizing” food on a day when we all have license to let our dietary hair down is a slippery slope. “Food guilt” implies that certain foods or food groups must be restricted, and that if you slip up, you should feel upset with yourself. It’s a brand of guilt that stretches into several other facets of wellness. Think: “I didn’t get up for my workout. Therefore, I suck.” But the only folks who should be upset on Sunday are the fans of the losing team.
So go forth. Order your wings (get on that stat, in fact). Eat your Hint of Lime chips. Set up a diving board over a pool of guacamole. You deserve it, and the internet doesn’t deserve to tell you otherwise.

How much of his net worth did The Weeknd spend on the Super Bowl?
The Weeknd, responsible for hit tracks such as “Starboy”, “The Hills”, “Can’t Feel My Face”, and “Blinding Lights”, put on a incredible halftime show performance during Super Bowl LV, leaving many shocked at the singer’s set which felt straight out of a movie. It’s a fair comparison, seeing as his background dancers reminded us of the Sons of the Harpy from Game of Thrones .
But did you know that The Weeknd actually kicked in a pretty penny from his own net worth to make that Super Bowl LV performance even more epic?
While the NFL usually provides their halftime performers with an extensive production budget, it clearly wasn’t large enough for The Weeknd. The singer told Billboard a couple of weeks ago that he was invested in “dialing in on the fans at home and making performances a cinematic experience”. Boy did he ever deliver. So just how much of The Weeknd’s net worth was spent on the performance? Here’s the story.
The Weeknd can’t come soon enough
Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, or The Weeknd, was born in Toronto, Ontario, on February 16th, 1990. This musician struggled early on in life with drug addiction at the young age of eleven, having admitted to stealing them once his parents decided to break up.
The Weeknd woes continued as he dropped out of high school in 2007, opting to leave his home & family.
Looking to change his persona and rejuvenate himself, this musician, who wanted to avoid a lawsuit with another band in Canada whose name was The Weekend, looked to his reputation as a high school dropout for inspiration of a new name . . . The Weeknd. Perhaps this was due to him hating school and always waiting for the weekend to come around.
The Weeknd has arrived
After meeting music producer Jeremy Rose in 2010, the two collaborated on an R&B project that featured a couple of songs that were uploaded, earning tons of attention from music fans around the world, including hip-hop icon Drake.
The Weeknd’s debut mixtape, titled House of Balloons , was self-released on March 21st, 2011, which eventually kicked off his first tour in the U.S. that even included a show-stopping performance at Coachella in 2012.
The Weeknd would go on to collaborate with many hit artists, including Ariana Grande, Drake, Selena Gomez, and many others. The Weeknd even opened for Justin Timberlake during part of his 20/20 Experience world tour.
What is The Weeknd’s net worth?
Celebrity Net Worth estimated The Weeknd has a net worth of $100 million.
Luckily, while perhaps a bit too excessive in his performance art and physical metaphors, that scary “cat lady” plastic surgery we often see during his performances is completely fake, leaving his impressive net worth to be saved for something special . . .
Like a Super Bowl performance, maybe?
What did The Weeknd spend on the Super Bowl?
The Weeknd has admitted to have spent over $7 million of his own money on his epic Super Bowl performance, claiming it was the only way to meet his true vision. But what’s even crazier is that The Weeknd didn’t make a single penny on his performance. Well that sucks for The Weeknd’s net worth .
While the NFL ponies up quite a bit of money to help their performers meet their performance’s vision, it is known that these musicians don’t actually make a profit off of their halftime show, but are rather compensated by the exposure the biggest game in the world offers them.
However, while the performance did garner a massive amount of eyes, it’s still unclear as to when live performances & concerts will return to their full norm. Hopefully this investment will pay off for The Weeknd, otherwise it’s bound to make him feel like he’s got a case of the “Monday lulls”.

Phoenix: In line with America
The Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale area of Arizona ranks 12th in the country with a population of nearly 4.4 million in 2013. About 87 percent of residents graduated from high school and 30 percent have a bachelor's degree or higher, and although those figures are lower than Boston and Seattle, they are about in line with the national average.
Similarly, the median household income for Phoenix is very close to the national median, at $51,847 compared with $52,250 nationally. And the median home value for the region is also close to the national median, at $177,900 compared with $173,900 nationally.
