Since it’s Superbowl Sunday some regular shows end up being cancelled. We have endeavoured to weed out those that we know are not happening and confirm as many of the regular events as possible but it never hurts to call ahead. You can usually find a club’s phone number using a Google Maps link which comes up for most addresses.
