No problem. There are thousands of people like you trying to just enjoy some of the partying, live music viewing or football frenzy going on throughout the region.
Here are our picks for enjoying laughs, music, football and other sporting events next week.
If you want to grab tickets for any of these events listed below or for the Super Bowl itself, feel free to call 1-877-959-4699 or email@example.com. We will be glad to help.
Are you ready for some star-gazing?
Fans have lots of ways to see former or current NFL players and celebrities around town before the big game.
Super Bowl Media Day kicks off the star-gazing on January 28 at Prudential Center from 10:30am to about 1pm. Essentially fans get to sit in the stands and see Peyton Manning, Richard Sherman and the rest of the players answer lots of football-related, and also not football-related, questions. At Caesar’s Atlantic City, you can listen to Barry Sanders and Joe Montana talk Super Bowl on Feb. 2.
Then also you have the well-talked about Super Bowl parties. There are many but this is a good summation of the most high-profile parties, including a Maxim Party hosted by Kendrick Lamar and a Taste of the NFL event in Brooklyn.
