It’s nearly Big Game time, which means facing the ultimate Super Bowl dilemma: not which party you’ll be attending, but how you’ll snag a new friend (and maybe even a hot date) while the football drama plays out on TV. First things first, you’ve got to dress things up a little. Casual Sunday is great, but definitely try to forgo the fluorescent jersey and foam finger for something a little more, well, sophisticated.

Once you’ve got the booze covered, it’s time to think about snacks. Not only will your party host be grateful for something snazzier than chips and dip, bringing a home-cooked snack to the table will definitely get you noticed. Check out Bon Appetit’s top 24 Super Bowl Snacks (and yes, some of them are actually cook-able), or pick up a copy of the latest issue for snack recipes that’ll titillate more than just tastebuds.

The result? You’ll be a walking fashion machine spreading tasty beer and sexy snacks in your wake — now just don’t forget that watching the game isn’t the only way to score a touchdown or two.
