Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

For this American holiday, we get together with friends and family in the flickering glow of a big screen. We eat. We drink. We rate commercials. We make art out of consumerism, capitalism. We gamble. We root for the stories, the symbol of resurgence in a great American city, the anointed prince ready to seal his legacy. We do this for a game no other country likes. We display strength and power. We come together as a nation, as a people.

Check out the tropical and Caribbean-themed viewing party and BBQ at Mardi Gras Gaming & Casino (831 N. Federal Highway, Hallandale Beach). The event starts at 2 p.m. and there’s no cover. Call 954-924-3200, or visit playmardigras.com.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
