But with Washington’s famed salmon and oysters and Colorado’s beef and lamb, a Super Bowl menu pairing of surf and turf could make for yet another interesting matchup.
Moreover, you’ve got Washington State’s great wines to go up against Colorado’s long beer brewing history.
Combine the offerings from these two states with New Jersey’s hosting of the game – which, of course, gives you license to put pork roll on whatever you make – and you’ve got the makings for a historic Super Bowl menu here.

With the Super Bowl scheduled to be played in New Jersey for the first time ever this weekend, the superintendent of the Middletown cemetery where Vince Lombardi is buried wants the game trophy that’s named for the legendary football coach to pay a graveside visit.
“Bring the trophy here” to Mount Olivet Cemetery, Ed Cardoza told the New York Daily News. “It’s so close now. As far as I know, it’s never been here to his grave. On the hundredth anniversary of his birth last June, there was supposed to be a big memorial that sort of fizzled out. This would be perfect.”
Cardoza plans to be in Manhattan to plead his case Wednesday when the Vince Lombardi Trophy arrives at NFL headquarters by FedEx, the News reports.
En route to an NFL press conference where officials touted their readiness for “the first-ever, cold weather, mass transit Super Bowl,” Ledger Live reporter Brian Donohue’s train broke down in Red Bank Wednesday morning.
