Starting January 30, 2019

"Football is, after all, a wonderful way to get rid of your aggressions without going to jail for it." - Heywood Hale Broun (1918-2001), American author, sportswriter, commentator and actor.

The nation (for the most part) turns its attention to The Big Game this Sunday, whether for the football or the commercials. Why watch at home when you can watch with a gang in a party atmosphere? Scroll down for ideas on where to go to catch the game. And for plenty of ideas for fun that doesn't involve football. Also, love is in the air, but you'd better be making those Valentine's Day plans NOW! We've collected Valentine's events together on this handy page that's only a click away or you can see them in the Plan Ahead section below. Stay warm, and Happy Wanderings!
