Celebrating Super Bowl Sunday In S. Fla.
MIAMI (CBSMiami) — At Brother Jimmy’s BBQ Sunday Fun Day Super Bowl bash, every seat was booked for the big game.
“It’s probably is gonna be madness,” said attendee Jason Lawrence.
The roster of revelers at the Brickell bar included NFL stars, Rapper Fat Joe and South Florida models as the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos took to football’s biggest stage.
“Being a South Florida boy, I’d much rather be down here in 80 degrees as opposed to 40 degrees,” said Jon Beason of the New York Giants.
“I’m hoping not to get too drunk, expecting to have a fun filled time and enjoy the people,” said rapper Fat Joe.
All hands are on deck at Brother Jimmy’s Bar and Kitchen with enough wings to serve 1-thousand people during one of their busiest celebrations all year.
“We have nothing but the best BBQ and liquor. What’s football without some booze,” said Jonathan Vilma of the New Orleans Saints.
“It’s Sunday. It’s cheat day…I can’t wait to get my hands on ribs and BBQ wings,” said Lisa Morales from Miami Model Citizens.
Super Bowl Sunday is also the busiest pizza day all year, CBS4’s Gaby Fleischman stopped by pizza hut in Doral to give them a hand.
Nationwide the company is dishing out 442 miles worth of pizza. That’s enough dough to finish 17 Miami Marathons and feed 2 million football fans.
Regardless of who people are rooting for, they’re all in agreement on one thing. Super Bowl in South Florida is just one more excuse to party.
“That’s what we’re here for. The same excuse, just to party,” said Morales.
Partying with a designated driver is always encouraged, but as a last resort this year AAA is again offering tow-to-go service to keep impaired drivers off the road.
If you get too drunk to drive a tow truck will take your car and two people home for free for the first 10 miles.
