Macho, Macho Bowl

If you don't want to party then you can go home. The ice cold beer is ready, the wings are extra sloppy and the fans are ready to hoot and holler at the TV screen. The Super Bowl is one of America's most coveted sports spectaculars, and with the city of Dallas hosting it for the first time ever, it's time to party harder than we've ever partied before. So bust out the Bacardi and the beer, go find some chump change and don't forget your fancy swagger because it's time to start the pre-game festivities with this year's Super Bowl XLV party. Enjoy a three day-long celebration of booze, music and fundraising with performances from The Village People, Passion Pit, Exit 380, DJ Enferno and Lena Katina of t.A.T.u. Silent auctions on Thursday and Saturday night will donate proceeds to the Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS organization and Friends of Fair Park. The event will also raise funds for Kidd's Kids. The party takes place Thursday through Saturday at the Cotton Bowl in Fair Park. Tickets are $225. For more information visit
