While San Francisco appears to be full of football fans, the whole Super Bowl experience isn't complete without endless snacks. 

Earlier this week we mentioned that 1.25 billion chicken wings will be consumed this Sunday, and now Mashable has a few more gut-busting facts about what we'll eat as we watch the Seattle Seahawks battle the New England Patriots in hopes of hanging on to the Vince Lombardi Trophy for another year. 

According to the site we'll eat 29 million pounds of chips, some of which will be used to scoop up the obscene amount of guacamole we'll make from the 120 million pounds of avocados. We'll then inhale four million pizzas before we wash it all down with 325.5 million gallons of beer.

Surprisingly, no statistics on the number of TUMS estimated to be sold on Sunday evening.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
