If you’re one of those of people who would rather do anything but watch football on Super Bowl Sunday, we have suggestions for a leisurely football-free day. Here are a few ideas for those of you who won’t be found at a sports bar having a friendly discussion about who's team is better than who's.
For those who prefer wine to sitting by the TV watching with a beer watching the game.
- : Attend the Weekend Concert Series from 3 to 5 p.m. This Sunday music features James Harris. No cover charge.

Classic Movie Night
Rent your favorite old movies, pop some popcorn, settle into the couch and forget all about football. Here are a few of my favorites.
- “Barquero:” This 1970 western will make you forget what football is.
- “Maltese Falcon:” This 1941 film staring Humphrey Bogart as a private investigator.
- “Funny Face:” Audrey Hepburn, Fred Astaire inn the 1957 musical comedy. What more needs to be said.
Play a game that invokes thoughts of warmer days.
- The Sandbox offers Sunday afternoon at the beach. Courts available for drop in and all levels welcome.
If you live in a house where football will be on, you may need to tap into your inner chi.
