A Southern Super Bowl: Share Your Plans With Southern Living!

January 28, 2010 | By | Comments (21)

Nails Earlier this week I visited Generation Dog, a Birmingham pet
boutique, and immediately noticed
the nails of the owner Catherine Bres. They were gold. But not just any gold. Her thumbnails were painted with the New Orleans Saints' fleur-de-lis.

She's also carrying cool fleur-de-lis dog treats in honor of the big game for those football minded canines (see picture below).Fdl

Catherine, a big Saints fan, shared that she was making plans to
visit New Orleans for Super Bowl weekend, to be in the middle of the
festivities. After all, it's only once a team gets to go to the big game for the first time.

This got me wondering: what are other Saints
fans doing to celebrate the Super Bowl? Is
anyone else planning to go to New Orleans or Miami? 

We asked Southern Living Facebook fans what they were doing for the big game …

Here are a few excerpts:


"Will be surprising my guests with personalized 'Who Dat?' and 'Geaux Saints!' chocolates. Guess you know who I'm routing for!" – Gwen Harris Cloutier

"I'll
be makin' my famous chocolate dipped rice krispie shaped footballs and
lot's of cajun gumbo. Who dat gonna git 'dem some good food, yeah!" – Kathy S. Brown

"We
will be having Red Beans and Rice or Crawfish etouffee. I'm sure
Boudain will be in there somewhere as well. I made Fleur De Lys sugar
cookies for the Saints vs. Cowboys game and they were a big hit." – Valerie Johnston Mellema

Now we want to hear more from you, especially if you're planning a
Super Bowl related road trip or special party. Please share in the "comments" section!

    I am currently living in Reykjavik, Iceland so I will be having a Super Bowl Party and serving lots of good, ole’ Southern food….shrimp jambalaya and gumbo for certain. I wish I were in New Orleans to celebrate or better yet going to Miami.

    Got a wild hair and decided to roadtrip to NOLA to watch the Big Game with the WhoDat Nation.
    Anybody have suggestions for cool Super Bowl stuff (bar/restaurant specials or viewing parties) happening in NOLA this weekend?

    Personalized dog tags are a great idea for anyone who owns a pet. They will help you easily find dog if you should miss. There are many times when missing dogs can not return to their respective owners, because no one has the right information to do so.

    Those are cute nail arts. I know it is hard to do that. You really have to have an inborn talent for that.
    For the big game, I’d love to have great foods or candies with me.Just right for good games!
