Looking for Super Bowl parties? Celis Brewery, Fresa’s has them


Comedy

Trevor Noah at Bass Concert Hall. By taking over hosting duties of “The Daily Show” from Jon Stewart, South African comedian Noah — who had originally joined the show as a contributor — had big shoes to fill. In the years since, he has made the show his own and now has stories to tell about it. He’s coming to Austin for a couple of shows that will mark his return to his stand-up comedy roots. 7 and 10 p.m. Saturday. $39.50-$85. 2350 Robert Dedman Drive. 512-471-2787, texasperformingarts.org.

ColdTowne Theater “Deja Noir.” The femme fatale who knows what she wants and how to get it. The detective, easily tempted to veer from his assigned task. The cop who has to try and enforce the law. The fully improvised “Deja Noir” will deconstruct the dark side and throw some comedic light on your favorite noir subjects. 7 p.m. Saturdays through Feb. 24. $10. 4803 Airport Blvd. coldtownetheater.com.

Coming up

Super Celis Pigskin Party. Sure, you could watch the Super Bowl at a sports bar, but how about at a brewery with a large projection screen and many good beers? Celis will have beer specials, free food, interactive flick football games and the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles duking it out on the screen. The free food spread starting at 5 p.m. will feature wings and other game day munchies — such as pork sliders and fried cheese balls — from RWB’s Chow Bus. 5 p.m. Sunday. Free. 10001 Metric Blvd. facebook.com/events/2111489145754166/.

Fresa’s Super Bowl Watch Party. The South First location is hosting its first Super Bowl party beginning at 3 p.m. The outdoor patio will have a nearly 9-foot LED video wall, and the indoor dining area will have several TVs brought in specifically for the Super Bowl. All beer, wine and margarita options will feature happy hour pricing, and there will be special Super Bowl snacks as well. The best part? Fresa’s will offer free endless queso. 3 to 10 p.m. Sunday. Free. 1703 S. First St. facebook.com/events/385021998608093/.
