DINING: Super Bowl eats

This is Super Bowl weekend, which means every bar in town and quite a few restaurants will have special menus, deals on food and beverages, and sometimes even prize giveaways. For an extensive listing, go to lvrj.com/big_game_parties.

Here are a couple of the more unusual offerings:

LBS: A Burger Joint at Red Rock Resort, 11011 W. Charleston Blvd., is offering specialty burgers to represent the competing teams. The Cheesehead is a bratwurst patty stuffed with American cheese and topped with pepperjack cheese, a fried egg, lettuce, tomato and whole-grain mustard aioli, served on brioche or a whole-grain bun with fries. And The Pitts’Burger is a beef patty topped with shaved pastrami, Gruyere, coleslaw, sliced tomato and mustard, served on French bread with fries. The celebration there starts at 11:30 a.m.

First Food & Bar at the Shoppes at the Palazzo, 3327 Las Vegas Blvd. South, is offering the Primanti Bros. Impression — an homage to the iconic Primanti Bros. restaurant in Pittsburgh — with ham, provolone, fries, coleslaw, tomato and mayo. First’s The Big Packer is a double-decker grilled cheddar and bacon sandwich. Specials are available there from noon to 7 p.m.

You might be interested to know that the National Chicken Council predicts that more than 100 million pounds of chicken wings will be consumed during the weekend.

And as a native Clevelander, I have to say: Go Green Bay!
