Mr. Obama and first lady Michelle Obama hosted a Super Bowl party at the White House, where the exquisite neutrality was maintained on the menu.

In honor of Baltimore and San Francisco, the Obamas’ guests were served Chesapeake crab cakes and San Francisco cioppino stew with sourdough toast. They were also treated to Anchor Steam and Clipper City beers from the competing cities.
