Things to Do This Weekend + Where to Watch 2017 Super Bowl

J Dilla, Cirque de Soleil, Super Bowl events

It’s the first weekend in February, and though it’s not jammed packed with events, there may be one or two that catch your eye. But it shouldn’t matter since this weekend is all about the main event: Super Bowl LI. Here’s what’s going on for the next three days, as well as a few spots to watch your team smash its opponent. Some places are even serving mudbugs because you know what time it is: CRAWFISH SEASON!

ALL WEEKEND

Cirque du Soleil Toruk – Running all weekend long at the Smoothie King Center, Cirque du Soleil’s “Toruk” is inspired by Avatar. The event will tell the story of two Na’vi hunters, Ralu and Entu, on a quest to call upon a creature to save their homeland, Pandora. If you’ve been to a CDS show, you can expect the makeup, costumes, and acrobatics to be everything. Show times and ticket prices vary.

FRIDAY

Dilla Day NOLA – join the creators of The SoundCLASH as they pay homage to the late, great J Dilla. The rapper/producer is best known for his work with A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots, Common, Erykah Badu, Janet Jackson, Talib Kweli, NOLA’s own Jay Electronica, and way more. The 4th annual celebration is happening at Three Keys inside the Ace Hotel. The standing-room only event starts at 9P.

SATURDAY
