2. Celebrate Denver football
If you want to enjoy a good meal before the game, what better place to go than the restaurant owned by a Broncos legend? Elway’s is already renowned for the quality of its food, and you can’t get much more football-themed than eating there on Super Bowl Sunday.
3. Bet on the game

4. Host a party

5. Avoid the party
If you’re just not that into football of the Super Bowl, then today’s the perfect day to take advantage of the non-existent crowds. Head to the mountains and ski the back bowls
