Menino, Bloomberg go all-in on Super Bowl wager

Losing city will roll out red carpet

The mayors of Boston and New York announced the traditional Super Bowl bet between municipal leaders yesterday, but this one has a touristic twist: A lucky family from the winning city will be treated to a free trip to the losing city.
