LA Rams v Cincinnati Bengals for Super Bowl LVI! Get ready for the game by planning the perfect party appetizers and drinks and surveying the stunning stone surfaces that can hold them up for you. We’re going to attempt to match a few favorite Bengals and Rams players with a recipe that honors them and the type of kitchen island or bar top that we think pairs well with them.
Bengals QB Joe Burrow #9
Although Burrow graduated from OSU after three years of school, he also played two years for Louisiana during a graduate program where he brought the Tigers to a perfect season and a national championship. Let’s celebrate his Heisman Trophy-winning arm with a handheld, Louisiana-inspired mini muffuletta appetizer. Take one for yourself, and toss one to a friend. Get the recipe here. These southern sandwiches are a heavy hors d’oeuvre, and would be displayed mightily on a durable granite kitchen island like this one.
Bengals WR Ja’Marr Chase #1
Another LSU grad and friend of Joe Burrow, wide receiver Ja’Marr chase is known for his speed and playmaking ability. He is the first player ever to wear #1 for the Bengals. We have chosen these cajun crab stuffed jalapeños for their #1 taste and spices from this Louisiana native’s hometown. Mimicking the nice color of the jalapeño, this green countertop would be the perfect surface to carry these hot and savory bites.
Bengals HB Joe Mixon #28
One of the best running backs in the NFL, Joe Mixon is the youngest of 6 children. He comes from the Bay Area, and hosts a football camp for kids every summer. Mixon played ball at Oklahoma before going pro. As popsicles were invented in San Francisco, where our famed running back calls home, this next recipe is for a tequila sunrise freezer pop. Festively orange for the Bengals, and easy to keep cold on the porch in this February weather, these poptails are a playful boozy treat. How about a stone-surfaced bar to prop your elbows on while you enjoy a frozen cocktail in front of the game?
HALF TIME SHOW
(not actually written by Snoop Dogg)
With so MANY KITCHENS in the C-L-E
It's kinda GREAT being A STONE COMPANY
AND WE, somehow, some way
Keep coming up with funky FABRICATION like every single day
May WE, kick a little something for the G’s (AS IN GRANITES)
And, make a few COUNTERTOPS FOR YOU
EIGHT in the morning and the party's JUST STARTING
'Cause WE’RE COMING TO YOUR home
WE got GRANITE PREFABBED FOR YOU, PUTTING IT on
And, WE ain't leaving 'til IT’S POLISHED AND SHINY, POLISHED AND SHINY
So what you wanna do, FRIEND
I got a WORKSHOP full of STONE SLABS and SOME TILE BACKSPLASH too
So turn ON the lights and OPEN the doors
But—but what?—we DO love them STONES
So we gon' CHOOSE a FEW MORE SURFACES
G(RANITE)'s up, LAMINATE down, while you FINE CUSTOMERS bounce to this:
QUARTZITE, ICESTONE, QUARTZ, MAYBE MARBLE, WHAT ABOUT A PORCELAIN TILE
Laid back with my mind on my GRANITE and my GRANITE on my mind.
Rams DT A’Shawn Robinson #94
Absolutely gargantuan Rams defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson storms the field at 6’-4” and 330lbs! This beefy Alabama grad and Texas native might have his appetite appeased by some beef short ribs piled on a crostini, seen here. Put these stacked snacks on a stacked kitchen counter like this one.
Rams TE Tyler Higbee #89
We’re not sure tight end Tyler Higbee will make it to the field after spraining his MCL during Sunday’s win against the 49ers, but this twisted buffalo chicken pizza will make it to our kitchen counter! Don’t twist your MCL getting to these delicious twists! We think they would look great on this high contrast stone.
Rams PK Matt Gay #8
Rams kicker Matt Gay had a FG% of 94.1 this season. We bet that number would increase with a kick from these super spicy firecracker chicken wings on the menu! Be sure to wash your hands after indulging in these fiery treats at a fabulous undermounted sink like this one!
Whether you’re rooting for the Bengals or the Rams, just watching for the half-time show, or showing up for the commercials, we hope you have a blast on Super Bowl Sunday! We can help set the scene for the perfect party with some swank stone countertops in the center of it all. Give us a call today! (440) 327-3077.
