As you may already know, Super Bowl XLVIII will take place at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey this Sunday, and literally everything involved with this one football game costs a billion dollars. Commercials, tickets, fan gear, travel, lodging, food, prostitutes – everything costs exactly $1 billion, according to what I see when I roll my eyes at Darren Rovell’s Tweets. The Super Bowl is so gosh darned expensive that us simple folk can hardly ever go the game, and we settle for house parties and bar specials with our friends to make due like the lowly pieces of human sh*t that we are. (But congrats on your $29.5 million salary, Roger Goodell!)
Well, I’ve got some good news for those of you who have at least traveled to New York City for Super Bowl week to take in the fan festivities while not being able to afford a ticket to the game without selling your child’s organs. The world famous Old Homestead Steakhouse in NYC has the Super Bowl party deal of a lifetime for you and your closest friends.

$150K? Sounds reasonable. I assume that my talking cow’s 72-ounce steak comes served on my brand new 72-inch 3D TV. Right?
While most folks are picking either Denver or Seattle, the lucky diners at this extravaganza can choose between T-bones and Porterhouses, lobster or shrimp, Oban single malt Scotch or Dom Perignon champagne.
Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha, “choose.” Sorry, but for $150K, I’d kind of expect to have both of everything, wrapped up inside each other and fried into a golden, crispy bread shell. And then my waitress, Kate Upton, would pour unicorn milk over it.
“It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance,” said Marc Sherry, co-owner of the iconic Meatpacking District eatery.
“It’s over-the-top expensive, excessive and extraordinary — but so is the Super Bowl.”
Damn it, the man makes a good point there. While I’m going to settle once again for the Dom Perignon special at Hooters for Super Bowl XLVIII, I’ll start saving and make reservations at Old Homestead for Super Bowl CLX.
