A bag of chips and a tub of guac happily devoured on a Sunday afternoon at the beginning of February?
As cuisine-centered traditions go, this one is not only tasty, it is very, very time-honored.
For Super Bowl viewers do like to snack while the ball is in play, and during the halftime show, and throughout all of those big-budget commercials, too.
But if you're looking beyond the bag of chips and guac bowl, or perhaps seeking other supping options to complement that classic Super Bowl starter, you only need to look at what local restaurants have scheduled on their Feb. 7 takeout menus.
Tam O'Shanter in Atwater Village has a Moscow Mule to-go kit, and on the hearty-eating front? Lawry's pigs in a blanket and chili cheese fries. Yum and yum make two yums, and two yums are better than one or none.
