Sure, the Super Bowl is first and foremost a sporting event, the battle of the top two teams in the NFL.
But it's also the one day you actually want to watch commercials. (Because seriously, who can resist that Budweiser puppy?) It's a time to fearlessly gorge yourself on greasy food and beer. And this year, it's also the perfect opportunity to star-gaze as Katy Perry performs and Hollywood's hottest celebs cheer on their favorite teams.
As the New England Patriots prepare to face off against the Seattle Seahawks in Phoenix, PEOPLE is bringing you inside access, from the tastiest dishes to cook for your viewing party to the ads that will have your office buzzing Monday morning.

"Well, I can just watch the commercials." For decades, that's been the Super Bowl Sunday motto of many who care more about pop culture than they do football.

[YOUTUBE "Z0hQ_C59cyI"] As LFO was fond of reminding us, "Michael J. Fox was Alex P. Keaton" on the hit 1980s sitcom Family Ties, a crucial part of NBC's long-running Thursday night comedy block, which ends with the network's fall 2014 schedule.
But beyond its young star, a number of famous actors also started their journey to fame and fortune with bit parts on the series. To celebrate this week's 25th anniversary of the Family Ties finale (the curtain call of which you can watch above), let's revisit some of the series' most significant cameos.

"Roads ... where we're going, we don't need roads ..."
Nowadays we just need DVR or TiVo, but either way, you can soon head "back to the future" on an upcoming episode of The Michael J. Fox Show.
Fox is planning on reuniting with costars from the 1985 blockbuster Back to the Future on a future episode of his NBC show. He recently teased the reunion on Twitter.

Ryan Reynolds has nothing but love for Michael J. Fox – especially since they're Canadian, too.
"I've gotten to know his family over the years and they're just amazing," the actor, 37, told PEOPLE Saturday at The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research Benefit in New York. "They're just an incredible lot of people."
"We have that connection – we're all from the same part of the world," he added, referring to their mutual upbringing in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Another attribute he and Fox have in common? A shared mission.

Michael J. Fox has inspired millions with his courageous optimism and self-deprecating humor while battling Parkinson's disease.
Yet the veteran comedic actor, 52, whose highly anticipated The Michael J. Fox Show debuts on NBC Thursday, says he suffered through a tremendously dark period shortly after his diagnosis in 1991 and turned to alcohol for comfort.
"My first reaction to it was to start drinking heavily," he told Howard Stern on his Sirius XM Radio show Wednesday. "I used to drink to party, but now I was drinking alone and ... every day."

Can Parkinson's disease be funny?
Michael J. Fox, who was diagnosed with the disease in 1991, sure thinks so.
"I have challenges that come with Parkinson's but my experience is to deal with things through humor," he explains in a first look at his much-anticipated new NBC show.
The Michael J. Fox Show stars Fox, 52, as Mike Henry, a family-oriented New York news anchor who quits after his Parkinson's diagnosis. But much like the real-life Fox, Henry eventually decides to get back to work – although he doesn't want to make a big deal about it.
