There’s more to Super Bowl weekend than the big game and the halftime show. Before the game on Feb. 2, NYC hosted some of the most star-studded parties we’ve ever seen, with celebs like Kate, Jamie, Shay Mitchell and more stepping out to participate in some of the pre-game festivities.
Take it from us, the real Super Bowl stars aren’t on the football field. Celebs have been flocking to New York City for Super Bowl XLVIII all week, and with the biggest parties happening on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1, Kate Upton, Jamie Foxx and more were out for the festivities.
Super Bowl Weekend Parties
Super Bowl Weekend in NYC saw the sporting and entertainment worlds come together for the pre-game parties. At the GQ magazine party held on the roof of The Standard Hotel, sexy celebs like Pretty Little Liars actress Shay Mitchell and Hayden Panettiere came face-to-face with huge NFL names like Cam Newton, Terrell Owens, and Victor Cruz.
And one girl seemed to find love during Super Bowl Weekend — Kate Upton was spotted at the party getting cozy with Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, who she’s been linked to before.
During the Maxim Big Game Weekend, Justin Bieber, who was turned away from 3 other super bowl parties, showed up through the back entrance of Espace and was immediate ushered through the crowd to his table. He was surrounded by a bevy of beauties and ended up taking home an unidentified blonde bombshell.
Howard Stern’s 60th Birthday Party
One of the other highlights of Super Bowl Weekend was Howard Stern‘s 60th birthday party. Everyone came out for the radio legend’s big night — John Stamos, Jimmy Kimmel, Lena Dunham, and many more.
And the bash wasn’t just star-studded — it was like a concert! The Black Keys, Jon Bon Jovi, and John Mayer all performed songs to ring in Howard’s birthday.
It’s definitely been a wild weekend in NYC for the Super Bowl, and we’re almost sad to see it come to an end.
