Super Bowl, Valentines, Academy Awards . . . it must be February
Just when you think that the winter doldrums may be a little too much to bear, you flip the calendar to see that February holds lots of promise for social activity and partying. This weekend many of us will gather with our friends or families for the annual Super Bowl event. In some households, the tried and true serious football fans gather in one room while those who are there for the food cluster around in another room. Super Bowl parties offer a chance to try seasoned favorites like those offered at NFL stadiums, or some unique offerings from various ethnic cultures or even a few daring folks who design their menu around the hometown teams. Whatever you serve, wherever you go, the party store in Glenview is open on Super Bowl Sunday just like it is almost every other day of the year. So if you need a place for the last minute stop to pick up a Super Bowl party supplies form napkins, plates, party trays, or just about anything else your party may need, stop in! Oh, and don't forget about the TOM BRADY Special - 25 cents off a Patriot's Balloon, slightly underinflated!
And while you're there, check out everything on display for Valentine's Day party planning. There's bound to be something to touch your heart. And it's not too early to pick up the Valentine Day cards that need to be mailed to family and friends. Let them know you're thinking about them. We know they will appreciate it.
And last, but not least, we're getting ready to lay down the red carpet for this year's Academy Awards celebrations. There are several Oscar-themed party accessories and decorations. We even have Oscars to hand out to your guests who do the best job in predicting the outcome.
