It’s Super Bowl Sunday, almost, and all across the land,  Americans are stocking up on beer, chicken wings and chips for one of the biggest party days of the year.

By the numbers: According to wallethub.com, 27.5 percent of us plan to attend a Super Bowl party this weekend, with an average party size of about 17 people. According to the credit/finance service, during those few hours we will consume 1.35 billion chicken wings; 8 million pounds plus of guacamole; 14.5  tons of chips and 10 million ribs. And you better call ahead for that pizza: pizza sales increase 350 percent on Super Bowl Sunday as opposed to a regular Sunday. Add to that, 51.7 million cases of beer also will be consumed.

Not surprisingly, with all those parties, there also is a great need to upgrade that TV screen. Wallethub estimates about 9 percent of us will take advantage of Super Bowl sales and buy a new TV as well in time for the big game.

If you aren’t going to or hosting a party, here are a few options to watch the New England Patriots take on the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII.

Miller’s Ale House — This popular Central Florida food and drink place will offer reserve seating for the big game, an all you can eat buffet and open bar and more. There are several area locations including Hunter’s Creek.

World of Beer — Another popular gathering spot with three area locations, there will be specials during the game.

Wall Street — The downtown Orlando hot spot, featuring seven venues, boasts it has the biggest screen around, a 16-foot one, to accompany  beer and drink specials and a game party that incudes free draft beer from 5 to 6 pm. There is more information at http://wallstplaza.net/.
