Everything is larger in New York, and Super Bowl Boulevard is no exception. It has the obscene, fun-house distortion you expect when a party is thrown in Times Square.
I’m not going to lie; when I first learned that Super Bowl 48 would be played at Met Life Stadium and co-hosted by the city of New York and the state of New Jersey, I thought it was a bad idea for one reason: the possibility of bad winter weather impacting not only the game and everyone’s ability to get to the stadium, but the potential it had to wreak havoc on a week’s worth of special events. However, as the Texans rolled to 2 straight AFC South championships and I entered my 7th season traveling with the team as it’s sideline reporter on the radio broadcasts, I started warming up to the possibility that I might be on the field working the first-ever Super Bowl in my hometown. I even allowed myself to fantasize about the possibility that the Texans could face the team I grew up rooting for, the New York Giants, winners of 2 of the last 6 Super Bowls. Well, you know what they say about the best-laid plans. The Texans’ season was a 2-14 train wreck and the Giants won just 7 games.

Renowned more for its Riesling than its rye, New York’s grape-growing Finger Lakes region — think Western Upstate, between Ithaca, Rochester, and Syracuse — is actually one of the country’s most underrated beer destinations. Home to 36 craft breweries and 19 brewpubs (the largest concentration of beermakers in the state, despite what you might think!), it’s the perfect spot for a weekend beercation.
