BE A GOOD HOST
Let your guests know you plan to serve alcohol and be sure to find out what they prefer to drink ahead of time. Don’t forget to advocate for responsible celebration, ensuring that your guests partake within reason and have designated drivers. Plan ahead for a socially distanced event and make sure your guests are not gathering in close proximity to each other, like in a typical bar environment. Make sure your guests are not sharing drinks and refer to the gathering recommendations put out by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention before planning your Super Bowl gathering.
