Boston would get better end of big bet by Mayors Michael Bloomberg and Thomas Menino 

in a Super Bowl throwdown, Mayor Bloomberg and his Boston counterpart agreed to give a family of four from the winning side a dream trip to the losing city.

But when the Daily News estimated the tab for the all-expenses-paid trip, Bloomberg stands to fork over a lot more for a Giants’ loss than Boston Mayor Thomas Menino would for a Patriots’ defeat.

if the Pats win, Bloomberg’s offer includes dinners at the Russian Tea Room and B. Smith’s restaurant, and club seats at the Garden for a Knicks or Rangers game.

Hizzoner will also throw in tickets to the 10,000th performance of “Phantom of the Opera” and VIP tours at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Statue of Liberty.

n He’ll also treat the lucky family to a tour of the Brooklyn Brewery.

if the Giants win, Menino would be on the hook for dinner at Legal Seafood in Boston and at the top of the Hub restaurant, plus a performance at the Citi Performing Arts Center and a Duck Tour ride.

Menino is also promising club seats to a Bruins or Celtics game at TD Garden, a gander at John Adams’ personal diaries at the Boston Public Library and a tour of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.

in the suds department, he’s arranged for a tour of the Samuel Adams Brewery.

Both mayors also agreed to pose for photos with the winning family, of course.

After the crunching the numbers, the Daily News estimated that Bloomberg’s bet outweighs Menino’s by anywhere from $1,400 to $2,200.

even the photo op with Bloomy would top the say-cheese moment with Menino — if the family can get the mayor to autograph the pic.

an autographed photo of Bloomberg goes for up to $124 on eBay. There’s no photo of Menino for sale; a signed letter by the Bostonian can be had for $24 on the online auction site.
