On Feb. 11, Flanker Kitchen + Sports Bar at Mandalay Bay is offering a Swelce Sando ($24), Flanker’s take on Travis Kelce’s favorite sandwich (the Z-Man from Joe’s Kansas City) featuring 12-hour smoked brisket, melty provolone, onion rings, housemade barbecue sauce, and bread and butter pickles, all on a potato bun.

Flanker is also offering a Shake It Off milkshake ($15) made with Squashies (Taylor’s favorite candy), vanilla and double chocolate cookie dough ice cream and chocolate sauce, and a Love Story cocktail ($20) fashioned from DeLeón tequila, lime juice, triple sec, blood orange purée and simple syrup.

No matter which teams end up going to the Super Bowl, this year’s game could be the biggest ever — Las Vegas will host the title match-up for the first time. For perspective, the city is already the world’s biggest destination for Super Bowl Sunday, with about 300,000 people annually flooding the hotels, sports books and restaurants. Add the excitement of proximity, and analysts estimate that number could go up to 450,000 visitors by kickoff on Feb. 11.

While only 65,000 fit into Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium, those unable to score a ticket will have plenty to see. Here is the play-by-play on where to stay, what to eat, the pre-celebrations to attend and the thrilling game-day watch parties.

Flanker Kitchen + Sports Bar at Mandalay Bar sits adjacent to Allegiant Stadium and showcases the 50-yard line experience with a 30-foot-long LED viewing screen in the main dining room and high-definition TVs throughout the venue. There is a premium open bar, an all-you-can-eat menu and a post-game party.
