Food photo tweets from Super Bowl viewers

Published: Monday, Feb. 3, 2014 - 5:58 pm

While there wasn’t a lot of suspense after the first five minutes of the Super Bowl, as the Seattle Seahawks dominated Peyton Manning and company, here at The Bee we were plenty happy with what we saw – lots and lots of food thanks to our friends on social media.

We asked readers to tweet us photos of what they’re cooking, eating and drinking using #sactweets. Not everyone knows, but this symbol is called a hashtag in social media circles. Using a hashtag helps us corral the tweets into one place and share them with readers.

Some food choices were modest. Some were over the top. But everyone seemed to do better than the Denver Broncos. Here is some of what we found.

I think I want to hang out with Nate Simon next Super Bowl:

And maybe Sonny Mayugba of Red Rabbit can give us the low-down on how he found some Pliny for the big game. Impressive.

I have just the pairing for that world-class DIPA:

And one more for those with a sweet tooth:

Thanks to all who shared with us. We hope to do more of this on Twitter. So keep the #sacfeast tweets coming.
