7 Tips for the Best Big Game Party

It’s hard to believe, but the biggest football game of the year is right around the corner. Have you thought about how you’ll spend the evening? If you’re having a COVID-19 safe get-together, check out these tips for the best football watching party!

As a special note, do make sure guests know ahead of time what you expect in the way of masks and social distancing.

Have a Hot Tub Party

For starters, how’d you like to sit in a hot tub full of clear, heated water, surrounded by massaging jets? Then, how would you like to add some friends and the big game?

If your answer is, “Yes, that sounds terrific!” then you are well on your way to the perfect hot tub party with the best seat in the house.

Check out these tips for a great party:

#1: Check Your Hot Tub Water

Now is a great time to check your hot tub water, especially if you haven’t used it in a while. You want to make sure it’s crystal clear and smells nice in advance of your party.

  • Stock up on chemicals and test your water before the big game!
  • Is your water balanced? Don’t know? Bring us a sample, and we can help you!

#2: Clean Your Filters

Make sure your filters are clean before your party. If they are several years old, it’s time to replace them.

#3: Set Your Temperature

While there is no perfect temperature across the board, for most people, a temperature range of 100°F-102°F is good for a hot tub soak. While 104°F is the standard maximum temperature, it is probably too hot for your hot tub party.

If you have pregnant guests, make sure they talk to their physician before getting in a hot tub.

#4: Provide Drinks

Set out plenty of non-alcoholic drinks such as juices, smoothies, sodas and bottled water. To be Covid-safe consider using single serve bottles so people aren’t all touching the same drink handles or bottles.

It’s a good idea to save the alcohol for after the hot tub soaking.  First, you don’t want glass bottles anywhere near the hot tub, and your guests will feel the affects of the alcohol much sooner if they are also sitting in hot water.

#5: Provide Party Snacks

Make or buy your favorite game day snacks. If you’re partying outside or in an outdoor room, keep the snacks to finger food. This makes it easier for your guests to eat. Since we’re in the middle of a pandemic, consider single serving size options so you aren’t sharing utensils.

#6: Set Out Towels

Make your guests feel more comfortable with plush, cozy towels. Have extras for everyone – this helps for guests who are getting in and out of the tub.

#7: Create Ambiance

The game of the year is a festive occasion and calls for a large television and great speakers. In addition, consider adding some candles or hanging lights for a great atmosphere.

Now it’s time to sit back and relax for your football watching party. Enjoy the game, the half-time show and your friends and family in a fun Covid-safe environment!
