NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) — Super Bowl Sunday is reportedly the second highest food consumption day of the year, trailing only Thanksgiving.

In the Tri-State area fans have been loading up on supplies for the big game for several days.

Upper East Side Resident, Peter Huszagh told CBS2’s Mark Morgan, “I didn’t want to come down here and have an empty chicken wingg aisle, so I have my chicken, sausage, corned beef.”

Alex Maybury was stocking up on the basics.

“I’m buying some beers, pretzels, chips, you know standard fare.”

One fan even put his own spin on a classic sandwich.

“We have an Eli Manwich which is a classic Sloppy Joe,” said Jordan Andino.

Dan Brady told CBS2’s Kathryn Brown that he is benching his last name for game day. He has temporarily changed the name of his Upper East Side bar from “Brady’s” to “Manning’s” to bring the Giants a little bit of good luck.

“Me being a huge Giants fan, I had to do it,” he said.
