10 Recipes For A New Orleans-Themed Super Bowl Party

The Big Game is in New Orleans this year: a city of jazz, of tipsy streets, of boozy slushees, of seafood and jambalaya and rice and lots of alcohol. Can you think of a better reason to throw a themed party this Sunday?

The food and drink of New Orleans lends itself perfectly to football-watching -- (hopefully) celebratory football watching. So choose a gumbo, a jambalaya, an oyster preparation, and a spicy cocktail, and invite your friends over. Laissez les bons temps rouler!
