It’s Superbowl Sunday and although you won’t be watching The Patriots this year (I know! I know!) you can still party with Boston Black MBAs, Mass Black Lawyers, NABA Boston and NSBE Boston Professionals at Kings Bowling Alley (50 Dalton Street). Get your seat at 5:30 p.m. Kick-off is at 6:30 p.m. Paid members are free while non-members are $15. Fab Gal Tip: This event usually includes some food, but you’ll still want to have cash to purchase your own. Also this is a social event, so don’t tell people to hush during the game because they won’t.
If you’re party hopping or a supporter of Boston City Councillor Tito Jackson, then head to his Super Bowl Party at the CharlesMark Hotel (655 Boylston Street). Arrive early if you’re looking for a seat and bring a suggested donation of at least $20. Click here for more information!
