New Game Time Menu: Just in Time for March Madness

Catering By Michaels

It seems like not a week goes by without something exciting happening in the sports world. Whether it’s a new season, an exciting play, or even a little drama—it’s certainly never boring!

Sports fans are starting to think about their brackets for March Madness (also known as the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament), where the best of the best in college basketball (68 teams to be exact) go head to head for a shot at winning it all and becoming national champions. 

Let the insanity begin!

At Catering by Michaels, we’re just as excited (ok, if not more…) for the opportunity to relax our diets a bit in the name of the game. While the Super Bowl may be the single day of the year where Americans, on average, consume the most calories in one sitting (yes, even more than Thanksgiving!), we’re willing to bet that the series of events that make up March Madness could give it a run for its money!

[But don’t feel too bad—January is for dieting. March is for basketball and time with friends!]

Catering by Michaels Game Time Catering Menu

Alongside our many delicious catering menu options, we’re excited to announce our Game Time menu. It’s stuffed to the brim with delectable (and yes, indulgent) treats to satisfy any basketball fan. 

Score a game worthy spread while you cheer on your favorite teams. Here are some of the highlights, including many favorite game-time foods:

  • Pregame festivities: Dips, wings, and other totally snackable appetizers. You can even order a Bloody Mary bar kit. We’re just warming up!
  • Sideline salads: Though watching March Madness games offers the perfect excuse to indulge, our salads offer a great balance so you don’t have to feel too guilty at the end of the day. The Fajita Steak salad is a nice mix of healthy and tasty.
  • And the final score is…: It’s all about dessert! Options like our Bourbon Pecan Pie Bread Pudding Muffins will be enjoyed most by partygoers with a more mature palate (though there’s plenty there for the kids, as well).

Celebrating Passover

Catering By Michaels

We love catering Jewish holidays and celebrations, like Hanukkah, Rosh Hashanah, and Yom Kippur.

This year, Passover begins on Tuesday, April 11th. The eight-day festival is a commemoration of the Jewish people’s freedom from slavery in Egypt. Food is especially important in the observance of this holiday. When the Jewish people left Egypt, they didn’t have time to wait for their bread to rise, so they ate unleavened bread. That is why matzo is eaten during Passover.

Catering by Michaels’ Passover menu includes unique takes on traditional matzah such as Apple Matzo Kugel, Matzo Crusted Mozzarella Sticks, and Honey Pecan Matzo-crusted Chicken. Of course, everyone’s favorite Matzo Ball Soup is also available.
