Going out to a pub or restaurant to watch sporting events can be loads of fun. Friends and family can cheer on your favorite team while enjoying a variety of foods.

But it can also be expensive. If you plan and shop with your budget in mind, you can feed the gang great food for much less than if you all went to a pub. 

Plus, keep food warm in crock pots or chafing dishes, so guests can serve themselves, allowing you to keep watching the game.
