The Cold, Hard Football Facts and Football Nation Super Bowl Party is being held at Barcadia New Orleans with our friends Samuel Adams; and El Monte RV, Taste of the NFL chef Steve DiFillippo of Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse; and the Pulse Network.

The party celebrates the end of our epic Road Trip to New Orleans all the way from Boston.

Along the way we tailgated at New England Cable News outside Boston, at Fox & Friends with SI swimsuit model Jessica Perez in New York City, with our pigskin pal Qadry Ismail of WBAL in Baltimore and hit parties and tailgates across New Orleans.

We’ll be joined at Barcadia by friends, fans, football players and other special guests to gear up for the Big Game Sunday. Come join the festivities if you're in town.
