Sunday, February 13 - The Super Bowl
The Super Bowl is this Sunday, which means it's time to chow down and enjoy some good football food, commercials, and maybe a little football as well. Some of us will attend a party for the game, others will not even watch it, with the rest watching for their own reasons. The game starts at 4:30 PM, but the eating and fun can begin earlier than that. Movie trailers, funny commercials, halftime shows, or the game itself, there is a little bit of something for everyone to enjoy when watching the game this weekend.
All Weekend - Celebrate Valentine's Day Early
With Valentine's Day falling on Tuesday, it may be wise to plan your holiday date for this weekend. After work, going out to eat and planning a date in the middle of the week can be tough, so have an early Valentine's Day date and do it on Friday or Saturday this weekend. Go out to dinner, a movie, or whatever you have planned so you don't have to do it on the more crowded holiday and don't have to worry about getting home late. Whatever you do, don't forget, because it is likely your significant other will not.
There is much to do this weekend. Make sure to catch the Super Bowl, go on an early Valentine's Day date, stop by the gun show in Filer, check out the Southern Idaho Home and Garden Show, see a musical or two, get hypnotized and laugh, cheer on a local basketball team, or do something else. The weather shouldn't be terrible, so take advantage of it and make sure to have a fun and safe weekend.
