Super Bowl 50 was originally scheduled to be played in Santa Clara, Calif., but it appears the game has been moved to Flavortown. Kulinary Kewl Kid Guy Fieri is hosting a massive pre-game tailgate party, complete with plenty of classic Fieri dishes. It sounds like a totally out-of-bounds time until you look at the price tag: an eye-popping $700 per ticket.
So why in the world would someone pay seven bills for this event? It's the Super Bowl, of course. The party, officially called The Players Super Bowl Tailgate, is hosted by Fox Sports personality Erin Andrews, and 25 current NFL players will be in attendance. And Fieri won't be the only cook on board. TV chefs Aaron May and Beau MacMillon will be manning the kitchen too. Still, that's a lot of dough for cuisine you would find at a slightly more upscale Chili's.
While the party is open to the public, it seems unlikely Fieri's culinary rival Anthony Bourdain would be allowed entrance. But for those who are on friendly terms with the human bowling shirt mannequin and feel like blowing a major chunk of change, see the complete menu below.
