The Brooklyn sandwich minichain is prepping oversize, six-foot-long versions of some of its signature handheld edibles. For traditionalists, there’s a dressed-up Italian sub, stuffed with cured meats, three cheeses and the shop’s “CSG” spread, while veggie-loving partyers can savor the Uncle Chucky, piled with roasted cauliflower, mushroom spread, kale and beer-pickled onions. The shop is also offering small bites like buffalo wings ($12/dozen), house-made pimiento cheese ($6) and French onion dip ($6). 485 Court St between Huntington and Nelson Sts, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn (718-722-7229) • 116 Sullivan St between Conover and Van Brunt Sts (347-529-5603) • courtstreetgrocers.com

For the big game, this Queens BBQ joint is focusing on grilled chicken wings to go: Order anywhere from 30 to 200 ($28–$160), served with sauces such as TK and TK. (If you’re feeling brave, try the Millionaire’s sauce, an extremely rich combo of foie gras and butter.) Items from the regular menu, including house-cured pastrami ($24/lb) and burnt ends ($14.50/platter) are also available. • 347-617-1120, johnbrownseriousbbq.com. Order by Thu 30.

Set out a spread fit for both your bubbe and your football-obsessed pals with a to-go pack from this nouveau Jewish delicatessen. Mile End will offer a supersized version of its signature dish: cured and smoked brisket (two pounds!), mustard and sliced rye, along with sides of coleslaw and sour pickles, all for $85. If that’s not quite enough to feed the crowd, items from the regular menu will also be available. 97A Hoyt St between Atlantic Ave and Pacific St, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn (718-852-7510) • 53 Bond St between Bowery and Lafayette St (212-529-2990) • mileenddeli.com

For an alternative to the standard subs-and-chips party fare, try the famed bo ssäm package ($350) from David Chang’s always-popular East Village restaurant. Slow-roasted pork shoulder is served with a host of condiments (kimchi, Korean BBQ sauce) and lettuce cups for wrapping. Touchdown-dance-worthy snacks, such as confited-chicken-wing buns and chili-cheese nachos, accompany the joint’s namesake dish, while the two dozen Milk Bar cake truffles (in pretzel and chocolate malt) probably won’t make it to halftime. • 212-254-3500, momofuku.com
- 207 Second Ave, (at 13th St)
Look no further than this Williamsburg fried-chicken joint for a Southern-inflected game-day feast. Snag 16-piece buckets ($35) of fried chicken, and platters of jalapeño poppers, mini chicken biscuits and hot wings ($25), and be sure to save room for stick-to-your-ribs beef chili with homemade cornbread ($16/qt). • 347-529-6090, piesnthighs.com. Order before Thu 30.

This Cobble Hill brew emporium has kegs of varying sizes (full, half, quarter, sixtel; $55–$100), with 15–20 varieties on offer. The shop sources product from farther-flung beer makers, and you can also order a keg from a wide variety of brewers (must be done three days in advance). • 718-875-0226
- 256 Court St , (between Butler and Kane Sts)
Prepare for a Boogie Down bash at this pub, with 16 taps and one cask for growler pours ($16–$34).

- 216 W 238th St, (Putnam Ave West and Review Pl), 10463

It boasts 70 growler options ($20–$40), including rare brews and oddball styles, so you’ll find something to satisfy every taste. If you want to rep one of the Super Bowl contenders, there’s a good chance you’ll find bottles from Denver or Seattle among the 150-plus options. • gingerman-ny.com
