Staff report

During its 48-year evolution, Super Bowl parties have become the social event of the year, whether groups decided to have their party at a friend’s house or venture to one of the local watering holes.

This year’s matchup, though, between two western teams with strong fan bases in Nevada, should make the beverages and food flow as well as the sports betting.
