It's almost time for Seattle to take on Denver during Super Bowl 2014, and we know how to celebrate: beer, wings and cabanas. Here are eight ways to celebrate the big game in Miami. 

  • Over The Counter

    This rustic Brickell space offers plenty of take out (and delivery) items that will fill you up during the game. Enjoy items like charred eggplant dip with grilled bread (a tray for 10 people $20), Thai chicken wings served with papaya cabbage slaw (25 wings for $50) and crispy taquitos stuffed with chipotle chicken (25 for $50). All orders need to be placed three days in advance.

    Set up shop in your own private cabana with personal 32-in. flatscreen and excellent view of the hotel’s pool. You’ll also be able to pick from several different bundles too, like the Safety Package for $200 that features a pitcher of ginger fizz with whiskey and unlimited chips and salsa - of course, if you're really hungry there's always the option of ordering right off Michael Mina 74‘s menu.
