There are a few essentials needed for a game-day celebration:
- Big screen – all the better to see with
- Big menu – all the better to eat with
- Big space – all the better to party with
Here we highlight a few homes where everyone can come and enjoy not only the action on the field, but the commercials and halftime show, too.
