A City Super Bowl

New York City hosted Super Bowl XLVIII and naturally, pulled out all the stops. Technically, the big game was in New Jersey, but the party was in the city all week leading up to kickoff. Times Square was turned into Super Bowl Boulevard filled with all things football. You could kick a field goal, throw a pass, and even see the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Safe to say, it was a madhouse. 

My darling friend, the Cajun Queen and PR Princess, Jenna Cason, was working the big event and we were able to meet up! I hadn't seen her in over a year and was so anxious to catch up! We did a quick lap through Times Square - it was freezing, and then had dinner at Empanada Mama and walked to Sprinkles for dessert. I was so happy she took time out of her busy week to visit.   

Scott was lucky enough to get tickets to the Super Bowl through his high school football coach's son, who does some work with his group at Blackstone. I ended up working on game day...someone has to put food on the table. He made the trek to MetLife stadium with a few coworkers and watched the Seahawks annihilate the Broncos. Scott claims Bruno Mars was the best part of the night. Even still, talk about a bucket list item! 

After work, I ran over to 90 West for a viewing party with friends. I caught this view of the Helmsley Building sporting a Seahawk victory on my walk home. The Super Bowl excitement was fun to experience in the host city.
