Two Super Souper Bowls (and you don't have to spend $2,475 for a ticket!!)

You have a choice.  You could either buy a Super Bowl ticket for $2,475.  Or for the same price, you could  attend the Souper Bowl in Santa Fe with 99 of our friends and relatives or the one in Albuquerque with 61 companions. Tickets are $25 in Santa Fe and $40 in Albuquerque.

And if you go to the Super Bowl in New Orleans, the $2,475 does not include any food.  You'll have to shell our some extra bucks to sample some of the offerings from concession stands at the Superdome. (And it's not as good as the food at the great restaurants outside the stadium in New Orleans).

The Souper Bowls in Albuquerque and Santa Fe, on the other hand, gives you samples of great gourmet food from dozens of local restaurants and benefit The Food Depot and Roadrunner Food Bank.

The Food Depot event, which will be held at the Santa Fe Convention Center (201 West Marcy Ave.) on Saturday, January 26, Noon-2:30 p.m., features food from The Blue Corn Cafe, Jambo Cafe, Azur, and other fine restaurants in the City Different.

In Albuquerque, the event will be held at Roadrunner Food Bank, 5840 Office Blvd NE, 11:00-2:00 p.m., also on January 26.  Dozens of great restaurants will be offering samples, including Standard Diner (Guy Fieri was there!), High Noon Restaurant and Saloon, La Fonda del Bosque La Provence Brasserie and many other wonderful establishments in the Duke City.  This is a special Souper Bowl for Roadrunner.  It's the 20th anniversary. That means you have to celebrate with sweets from Nothing Bundt Cakes or Choco Canyon Artisan Chocoloate.
If  you're  looking for football at the Souper Bowls, you're out of luck (although I'm certain you'll see a few people wearing Steeler, Cowboy, Bronco and other NFL jerseys). But since the actual Super Bowl is a week later, it is possible to  still attend one of the New Mexico fundraisers and the Harbowl (Harbaugh Bowl?) between the Falcons and the Ravens (provided you have that extra $2,475, plus air fare and hotel)  Or you can just watch it at home on your flat screen TV.
