"While we can't reference the game's name or the teams playing, we can assure you that fans from Arizona and Pittsburgh will love the drinks we've dreamt up for our party the night before the big game," said Andrew Jordan, senior vice president of marketing for T.G.I. Friday's USA. "It doesn't matter who you're rooting for or if you care about the outcome of the 's - - - r b - - l' at all, you'll love these drinks and special plans we have in store for our guests that night."

And, beginning at 4 pm local time at participating Friday's restaurants, the Game We Can't Name Eve party will include the following:
