Sunday night’s 43-8 Super Bowl may have been one of the least riveting games ever, but at least we had some good entertainment in between commercials: former Top Chef champ Michael Voltaggio’s hysterical live-tweeting of the food, beer and $20 hot chocolate.

Voltaggio (@mvoltaggio), who owns Ink. restaurant in Los Angeles, showed off his Twitter chops from the stands last night, using dry, matter-of-fact captions and letting his photos, like these two, speak for themselves.

Although nothing served in the stands was quite as exciting as the deep-fried Monte Cristo burger he introduced last week, Voltaggio scored big yuks among his 200,000-plus Twitter followers stating the obvious about the various stadium snacks.

Not surprisingly, high food prices were a theme of the night. Voltaggio photographed signs of some of the more outrageous ones, including hot chocolate ($11 for a small, and $20 for a large), a Mrs. Fields cookie ($7), and a plate of nachos ($12).

Then there were the beer pictures.

Like this moody, pulled-back shot of the chef holding a bottle:

These cans that were left in the bathroom:

Voltaggio double-fisting at his seat—first, the Miller Lite:

Then, the Bud Light:

The Bud Light shot is the only time we get a clue of Voltaggio’s possible Broncos loyalty, thanks to a flash of orange fabric. At no point does he say who he’s rooting for, though he does acknowledge the moment things turned for the Broncos:

Finally, Voltaggio closes with a dramatic shot of the stadium and fesses up to leaving 20 minutes early to fight the crowds. A follower responds, “Leaving early to avoid traffic? You are now a true Angeleno ;-).”

Hey, Michael—want to live-tweet the Oscars for us?
