For a football-watching "holiday" centered around six-packs, nachos, and various forms of dip, people who actually cook for their Super Bowl parties are kinda missing the point, right? With that in mind, here's a quick rundown of the Portland restaurants offering take-out (or in some cases, delivery) for this Sunday's Super Bowl XLVII. Do 'em all a favor and call-ahead those orders:
Where: Sizzle Pie
What: On game day proper (from 11a.m. until the end of halftime), Sizzle Pie is offering a "buy three, get one free" deal on all pizzas. The offer's good for take-out only.
Contact: Two locations: 632 E. Burnside St. and 926 W Burnside St.; 503-234-7437
Where: Double Dragon
What: Double Dragon is offering 15 percent off all catering orders on Super Bowl Sunday (with pre-orders required at least 24 hours in advance).

Where: 24th & Meatballs
What: On Super Bowl Sunday, meatball joint 24th & Meatballs is offering a take-out deal: a "bucket o'balls" (of course), featuring 30 meatballs, with your choice of sauce, for $20.
