Okay, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s talk about your big game day party.

If you just want to eat good food, here’s a look at what you can order around town (both take out and sit down):

  • Bear Branch Tavern: Fried chicken wing buckets with your choice of sauces (Buffalo, DC Mambo, Sweet BBQ or Honey Sriracha).
  • Settle Down Easy (Oakton): All you can eat BBQ for $63, comes with a drink. If you want some take out ideas, check out their Charcuterie or Mac and Cheese.
  • Foster’s Grille: Pre-order your wings and don’t sleep on their onion rings! 
  • Vienna Inn: Chili Dogs! You can always order these to go.
  • ChiMc: The wings and onion rings. Need I say more?

If you’re not a wings kinda partier, you can get sliders catered from Big Buns.

Taco Bamba has a “Big Game Platter” that includes 18 bamba wings and bamba nachos.

Newcomer to town, Charlie’s Bowl is texmex street food. They’re having a big game day special for 10 Tacos and 3 Chiles Botaneros for $40.

Don’t forget, if you’re trying to get rid of junk or old papers before you have guests over, stop by my FREE Junk Haul and Shred Event this Saturday from 9-11 a.m. at Yeonas Park (Vienna Little League).
