It’s football season and the Buccaneers are ready to rumble! Pick up one of these amazing spreads from local restaurants, get comfortable, and enjoy the games.
Wings & Buffalo Cauliflower
Indulge in this classic football spread from Coppertail Brewing Company. Their dry-rubbed smoked and fried wings are a local favorite and come with a variety of sauces from gourmet barbecue to the standard ranch. Pick up a plate of their Buffalo Cauliflower, a fun dish starring cauliflower fried and flavored in buffalo wing-style. They also offer pizzas, fully loaded waffle fries, and of course … beer.
Game Day Packs
The Metro Diner is ready for all you football fans out there. They offer a variety of game day spreads which feature wings, fried chicken, chicken tenders, and seared beef tips, all with classic dipping sauces. Each one of their options serves four to six people, so you’ll have plenty for your group of friends.
If you want to kick things up a notch, try Haven’s charcuterie plate with three gourmet meats, a baguette, and accompaniments. They also have a cheese plate that would be a great companion for the charcuterie, and together, they only cost $30.
Curds & Pickles
The Mermaid Tavern is a Tampa favorite. This restaurant supports locally made foods and beverages (you’ll never see big corporate brands like Coors and Pepsi on the menu). They feature a variety of amazing spreads, including this one, beloved by diners. Who doesn’t love battered, fried cheese curds with pickles? They also have a smoked fish spread and a spicy hummus plate with chips and veggies.
If you’re looking for something sweet, or a dessert spread to follow your savory spread, try Bake’n Babes. Their Babe Box has one of each of their customer favorites: a salted chocolate chip cookie, a Fruity Pebbles cookie, a Nutella-stuffed chocolate chip cookie, a “sleazy” brownie, and even CBD gummy worms. If you’d rather skip the variety and just get a box of your favorite sweet treat, they offer those as well.
Don’t forget to ask about delivery options – most of these establishments offer local delivery services or you can have them delivered through Uber Eats.
