This Sunday is the big game, and though your brain may be trained on only thoughts of the New England Patriots taking on the Seattle Seahawks, there's a lot more going on.

Investigate new spirits and beers, chow down on food truck fare, or enjoy a lovely brunch on the farm. Then finish the weekend off with the Super Bowl!

Weekend starts now!

Brunch in Paradise With Saffron Supper Club and Zak the Baker

There is no place in Miami-Dade more peaceful than Paradise Farms, which means there is no better place to indulge in a multicourse special brunch. This Sunday, February 1, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., join the Saffron Supper Club and Zak the Baker for brunch. You'll start with a welcome cocktail and a tour of the farm; then enjoy a meal that includes Israeli shakshuka, stuffed borekas, lebaneh and feta, green tahini, fresh-baked breads and pastries from Zak the Baker, and farm-fresh salads made with Paradise Farms produce and flowers. Limonana and mimosas will flow. Brunch costs $53 for adults and $15 for children under 12 (under 2 free). For reservations, call 305-248-4181 or visit paradisefarms.net.

Get the Deflate Cake for Your Super Bowl Party

If you're having a Super Bowl party, you're gonna need Epicure Gourmet Market's "Deflate-gate" cake, which pokes fun at the whole "deflated balls" brouhaha.

The cake can be custom-ordered for the Super Bowl up to one day in advance. It features alternating layers of chocolate and vanilla fudge and is topped with a deflated football and team logos for the Patriots and Seahawks. The cake ($75) serves 20 people and can be ordered at any of Epicure's three locations, in South Beach, Sunny Isles Beach, and Coral Gables. Epicure also has an adorable helmet cake ($28.95) that serves ten and is available to grab and go all weekend.
