Food Bowl

February 02, 2015

SUPER BOWL WEEK brings out the fascinating and banal. This year's game is in Glendale, Ariz., but nearby Scottsdale seems to be the place for the offbeat, including a try at the record for world's fastest skateboarding dog, an athletes-and-animals fashion show and a cigar party with Mike Ditka and Ron Jaworski. The topper may be the 27-foot-long, 25-foot-wide replica of University of Phoenix Stadium made up of 40,000 snack foods. Phoenix's Bar Napkin Productions spent 1,200 hours designing and building the edible edifice at Scottsdale Fashion Square, where it will stand until Feb. 1, when the $150,000 worth of groceries will go to the St. Vincent De Paul food bank.
