Don't Have $167,380 for a Super Bowl Ticket? Then go to the Souper Bowl Instead

It's mid-January, you're a big football nut, and you're dreaming about the possibility of attending Super Bowl XLV at Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on February 6.

You start to get discouraged when you realize that you'd have to fork over (gasp!) anywhere from $2,115 to $167,380 for a single ticket from an official ticket sales site!  You know, the one called Stub Your Toe or something like that.

Then you look for other alternatives and discover that  a popular wholesale/retail box store is offering packages of  $7,499.99 per person.  Granted, those include a few nights at a luxury hotel.  But still....

OOPS.  Forgot that it's going to cost money to get to Dallas...

Then you think Fuhgeddaboudit!  We'll just watch the Super Bowl on television in the comfort of our living rooms.

But as long as you're not spending  $2,115, $7,499.99 or $167,380 on a ticket to a football game, how about considering this other option?  

With all that extra money in your pockets, you can now attend the annual Souper Bowl to benefit Roadrunner Food Bank  on Saturday, January 29   11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.  The event will be held at Roadrunner Food Bank  5840 Office Blvd. NE

For $40 in advance or $45 at the door - $10 for kids 12 and under, you can enjoy soups and desserts from more than 40 restaurants, live music, and exciting prize drawing packages.

And there is a bonus. You'll have the knowledge that you are helping Roadrunner Food Bank provide food for the hungry in our state.

Plus, you'll get a chance to use your culinary judging skills through the People's Choice competition. Attendees will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite soup, vegetarian soup, dessert and booth.
