Super Bowl Preps Underway

Ribs are the most popular pick at Lufkin's Bodacious Barbecue.  Lately, rib requests have been keeping the restaurant's cooks in the kitchen.

"Instead of having to cook, we're here for you," owner Charles Chatman says. "Of course, barbecue is a great tail gate type of thing for super bowl.  We can do it for you a lot easier and I'm sure you'll enjoy it a lot better."

Party platters are also pretty popular.  They're custom made just the way you like it.

"That would be our ribs, of course; sausage, sliced beef, turkey, ham; we can custom make those trays to whatever you'd like," Chatman says.

If you plan to spend Sunday rooting for your favorite team, you might want to do it at the Sports Shack.  Come Sunday, places like the Sports Shack will be packed with football fans ready for some super bowl action with a couple hundred of their closest friends.

"We're giving away an HD TV which will be set up on stage," manager Clint Hawkins says.  "We will watch the game on that TV also.  We're also giving away a recliner [and we're going to] have crawfish for the patrons."

Not to worry, you won't be on your own once the game is over.

"We provide rides for people," Hawkins says.  "We have responsible servers. Most of our members [are] very responsible, as far as how they drink.  Most people bring designated drivers.  We will call taxi cabs for people that need rides."

Safely is the best way to end Super Sunday.  By the way, it's not too late to order a super bowl meal from Bodacious Barbecue.  You can place an order up until Saturday night.
