New Orleans, La. - What are you doing Super Bowl week? From big plans at home to a trip to the Dome, the options are endless -- if you have the cash.
48 bucks was the going rate for Saints season tickets in 1967. The price for a 2013 luxury view from home? "About 50 thousand dollars," said Michael Floyd of Kenner.
Floyd built a commercial-grade bar in the rear of his residence. It offers a great view of any game with a huge TV. "It's 80 inches and it's probably one of the thinnest and biggest TV's out today," said Floyd.
When Floyd started building his man cave, he says he was sure the Saints would end up in the Super Bowl. They didn't, but the party is still on in his extravagant set-up.
"It's so hard to go to a Super Bowl. It's so expensive, you know, if you're going to get tickets. So I just did this instead," said Floyd.
But "expensive" doesn't even begin to scratch the surface when it comes to Super Bowl week spending.
New Orleans' favorite quarterback is hosting a concert while all the big spenders are in town. Featuring Nelly, the Drew Brees Hurricane Sandy Relief Concert is set for February 1. It runs $1000 a ticket -- $1500 if you want to be a VIP.
If the penthouse is what you are looking for, how about $10,000 of sipping splendor at the New Orleans Polo Club? "The Key to the City" -- garnished with fresh fruit and a gold key -- comes with a luxurious penthouse stay at the Windsor Court.
Manning's Restaurant is gearing up for its first big game. Super Bowl Sunday there runs $250 per person. "Almost six hours' worth of select, amazing food and premium open bar, high-end cocktails and all you can drink and all you can eat for those six hours," explained Manning's manager Scott Hellmers.
If you're planning to be at Manning's, be sure to call ahead because space is limited.
Space is also limited at Michael Floyd's man cave. "But it works," said Floyd. "I really wouldn't want it any bigger after a while."
He's preparing for 35 to 40 guests. "My friends like to come here. My family likes to come here," said Floyd. "This is their favorite place to come. So if we're not at the game, this is where we're at."
There's no cost to attend a party at the man cave, but his Super Bowl celebration is by invitation only.
