NATICK, Mass., January 28, 2010 -- Hosting friends for the Big Game on Sunday, February 7? Look no further than BJ's Wholesale Club, your one-stop shop for everything Big Game-related, from food to televisions to cookware. With its high-quality, brand name merchandise at prices more than 30 percent* off supermarkets, BJ's can help you throw an easy, inexpensive party - sure to please your wallet and score a touchdown with guests!

A great get-together for home tailgating starts with the right TV. Family and friends will salivate over more than just food when viewing the game on a new Vizio® XVT Series 42" Full HD 1080p 240Hz LCD HDTV ($849.99).

"The Vizio XVT is an ideal choice because it features cutting-edge XVT or extreme Vizio technology," said Chris Maynard, Electronics Buyer at BJ's Wholesale Club. "Its 1080p HD resolution presents content with razor-sharp clarity for lifelike images, and its Smooth Motion technology eliminates motion blur from sports coverage."

Give the TV proper placement too with the Z-Line Designs Bentwood TV Stand with Integrated Mount ($199.99). The mount accommodates most flat panel TVs up to 60" and has open component shelving for proper air circulation.

Next, select a menu mixed with finger foods - after all, you can eat them with one hand, leaving the other free to slap a high five when your team scores.

"Choose food items with minimal prep time with BJ's wide selection of heat-and-serve appetizers, deli sandwiches, desserts, beverages and much more that will ensure you stay in the game and out of the kitchen," said Chris Neppl, Executive Vice President of Merchandising at BJ's Wholesale Club.
