Michael Bloomberg’s Big Super Bowl Bet

Super Bowl betting gets bigger every year. Now New York mayor and Southampton homeowner Michael Bloomberg is teaming up with Boston Mayor Thomas Menino to elevate the annual wager between mayors of Super Bowl cities to a whole new level. In the past, losing mayors have agreed to wear the other team’s jersey or eat a food representative of the winner’s locale, but this year the Super Bowl championship city will pick a resident family from a special lottery as the prize recipient. And what a prize it will be.

If the New York Giants win Super Bowl XLVI, the New York Post detailed, a family from New York will receive the following:

• Four tickets on JetBlue to Boston

• Two-night stay at the Ritz Carlton

• Dinner for four at Legal Seafoods Harborside

• Dinner for four at the Top of the Hub restaurant

• Four tickets to a performance at the Citi Performing Arts Center

• Four box seats at a Bruins or Celtics game at the TD Garden

• Behind-the-scenes-tour of the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum

• Duck Tour ride

• VIP tour of the personal diaries of John Adams, which inspired the HBO series, at the Boston Public Library.

• VIP tour of the Samuel Adams Brewery in Jamaica Plain

If the New England Patriots win, a Boston family will get:

• Four tickets on the Delta Shuttle to New York

• A two-night stay at the Grand Hyatt

• Dinner for four at the newly reopened Russian Tea Room

• Lunch or dinner for four at B. Smith’s restaurant

• Four club seats at a Rangers or Knicks game

• Four tickets to Phantom of the Opera

• Ride with the captain on Statue Cruises to Liberty and Ellis Islands, with a VIP tour of the Statue of Liberty crown and museum, including lunch

• VIP tour of the new wing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

• VIP tour of the Brooklyn Brewery

Since Mayor Bloomberg is at the helm of this should the Giants, um, lose, we will also throw a free copy of Dan’s Papers into the mix for the lucky New Engladers. Always willing to help a Hamptons neighbor, although we’re not too worried about it. After all, we know what happened last time Eli Manning and the Giants met Tom Brady and the Patriots in a Super Bowl.
