SUN 2/1: "What-Bowl Sunday?"

Unfortunately, Super Bowl isn't a big deal around here this year...


SUN 2/1

6pm to 9pm
All You Can Eat Pizza Buffet
at Milky Way Lounge, 403 Centre Street, Jamaica Plain

You don't have to do the $10 buffet to watch the game there, but why go if you don't? I love the food at Milky Way/Bella Luna. Think about it -- three hours of unlimited pizza! It's not crappy delivery pizza; this is the gourmet-style good stuff!

Bowling will also be free from 6pm to 9pm.

SUN 2/1

3pm to 11pm
"StuporBowl" w/ Willie T and Dr. X, The Sprained Ankles
at All Asia Cafe, 334 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)

I just listed an All Asia show for Saturday, but sounds like it could be a good time -- if the 12ft. projection screen shows the game well enough. There's supposed to be a pool tournament, raffles, drink specials, and an included Chinese & Italian buffet. (Shh, I wouldn't be surprised if there was Super Bowl pool...)

Willie T and Dr. X are probably doing an acoustic set before the game, and The Sprained Ankles will be the half-time entertainment. Call me crazy, but a live punk band might be better than a couple Springsteen songs on TV...

SUN 2/1

Sex and Drugs Trivia: Super Bowl Edition
at The Savant Project, 1625 Tremont St, Boston (Mission Hill)

I was feeling quite competitive when I went to S&D trivia as part of Team Bostonist, but most people were having a rowdy, bawdy good time like it should be when sex and drugs are invloved. There were 3 or 4 rounds that each have a theme. One of them is going to be football-related this week. (Steroids or ???) There are prizes for the top finishers. (We won a sexual position daily calendar...) As far as team sizes, they welcome "3somes, 4somes and full on orgies."

Personally I like the sound of "nacho bar" and $1.50 PBR's. Watch the game and play trivia during half-time.

SUN 2/1

"William Shakespeare: Poet of the Caribbean"
at Rehearsal Room B, Basement, Kresge Auditorium, 48 Mass Ave, Cambridge (MIT campus)

For those who hate football and not even interested in watching the commercials and overeating, the MIT Shakespeare Ensemble is doing their annual "24-hour show". The Shakespeare-inspired that's written 24 hours before the performance. They start with a title and go from there. This is the only performance of the play, and that might be a good thing...

You can see some pix from last year's "William Shakespeare: Vampire Hunter".
