This Sunday, February 2nd is the biggest day of the year for football and one of the biggest days for sports. Text chain hype-ups, watch party invites and snack preparations have begun. While it’s sure to be a blast for football fans, it might not be your idea of a good time. You might also be looking for something to do in addition to your plans to watch the big game in Atlanta. Here are 5 other ways you can have fun this Sunday.
SCORE: You can have fun at any of these happenings and still catch the game!
Have a Laugh at an Atlanta Comedy Show
Catch 10 of Atlanta’s best comedians on the same stage at the Laughing Skull Lounge. For The Best of Atlanta Comedy Showcase, each performer gets 10 minutes to give you their best material. You might sight a celebrity between laughs and sips at what is often called Atlanta’s best comedy club. Best of all, it’s steps away from the doors of Broadstone Midtown.
Doors open at 1:30 and the show starts at 2 pm. You’re sure to make it back home in time for the kickoff. Get your tickets here.

Move Your Body at a Marathon in Atlanta
What would you do for chocolate? If running is on your list, the Hot Chocolate 15k/5k is for you! There are treat stations along the way, but the Post Run Party is where the sweet, melty goodness makes all that hard work worth it. With hot chocolate in one hand and the other dipping treats into chocolate fondue, you’ll agree it’s a great way to spend any Sunday.
At the starting line at Centennial Olympic Park, two waves of racers take off at 7:30 am and 8:15 am. Keep a steady pace if you want to catch the game! Register here.
Enjoy the Arts With The Atlanta Opera
Don’t forget about the good ole Sunday Matinee. You can catch the last showing of Oscar Wilde’s shocking drama Salome at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center. Witness this psychological thriller composed by Richard Strauss, translated by Hedwig Lachmann and brought to the modern stage by The Atlanta Opera.
Plan to arrive a bit early to settle in for this 3:00 show. Salome is a one-act performance, so the curtain will fall with time for you to find a watch party. Get your tickets here.
