Updated: Cardi B enters the fray
This year, multiple artists will take the stage at Super Bowl LVI for the halftime show including Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, and Dr. Dre. Even if you’re not going to the game, here’s how you’ll feel like you’ve got a backstage pass in the comfort of your own home.
Eminem is coming to Los Angeles to perform in the halftime show and with the help of Postmates, he’s bringing his popular Detroit-based restaurant, Mom’s Spaghetti, with him. The Mom’s Spaghetti pop-up restaurant, with help from Pasta Sisters in Culver City and Uncle Paulie’s Deli will be available with $0 delivery exclusively on Postmates starting today through Sunday, Feb. 13 from noon until 9 p.m., while supplies last. You also can order for pickup from Uncle Paulie’s Deli DTLA location though the Postmates app or directly, in person at the store, from Wednesday through Saturday from 4 p.m. until midnight, and Sunday from 3 p.m. until 9 p.m.
Items on the Stan-tastic menu, centered around the legendary lyric from Eminem’s iconic Lose Yourself song, will include spaghetti dusted with classic canned parmesan powder and spaghetti with beef or vegan meatballs from Vinsetta Garage in Detroit. The S’ghetti Sandwich is an item straight from Eminem’s upbringing, assembled with Texas toast and mozzarella, and grilled to order. All come with a piece of toasted garlic bread. Postmates will be holding a sweepstakes beginning Wednesday, Feb. 9, to win one of 10 limited-edition jars of Mom’s Spaghetti’s sauce signed by Eminem.
If you’re in the mood for tacos or enchiladas, Compton native Kendrick Lamar’s favorites come from the 30-year-old Taco Pete stand on South Central Avenue, or their newer location on Slauson, available for pickup and delivery.
Either option pairs well with Snoop Dogg’s 19 Crimes Snoop Cali Red and Rose wines. Snoop Cali Rosé is fruit-forward with notes of fresh raspberry, strawberry and red cherry. A blend of Zinfandel, Grenache and Pinot Noir give this wine a pleasant mouth feel with balanced acidity and sweetness. Snoop Cali Red is a Red Blend of Lodi-sourced Petite Syrah 65%, Zinfandel 30%, Merlot 5%. All American oak offers a distinct smoky component that also yields vanilla and chocolate.
Lil Dicky, rapper, comedian, and star of the FXX show “Dave,” revealed via video on Twitter that he is teaming up with Gopuff to present entertainment faster during the Big Game with the first-ever Gopuff Quartertime Show on Twitter and his YouTube. The video, which features Cardi B and her signature Whipshots vodka-infused whipped cream, teases the one-of-a-kind music spectacle that will stream between the first and second quarters of the Super Bowl. Where to Watch: Twitter , Lil Dicky’s YouTube and Instagram, Gopuff’s Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.
And here’s the recipe for the official Gopuff Quartertime Show Whipshots cocktail:
2 oz. Spiced Rum
.75 oz. Citrus
.5 oz. Passion Fruit Syrup*
Garnish: Fresh Mint Leaf
Preparation: In a mixing tin muddle two slices of fresh ginger. Then, combine rum, citrus, and passion fruit syrup or substitute (see note below). Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Add garnish and enjoy.
How to make Passion Fruit Syrup: Combine 1 cup of water, 1 cup of granulated sugar and ½ cup of passionfruit pulp in a saucepan. Cook over low heat and stir, continuously until all the sugar is dissolved. Let cool the strain out the remaining chucks and serve. This also works really well with Pineapple if desired.
* A quick substitute for Passion Fruit syrup is 1.5 oz of pineapple juice – so you would make the cocktail with the pineapple juice instead of passion fruit syrup.
