SBXLVII Party Recap: Stevie Wonder, Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, & the Younger Knowles


It's a football weekend, but the NFL aren't the only stars in town. Last night's pre Super Bowl shows welcomed  the legendary Stevie Wonder to the stage, and Justin Timberlake performed for the first time in five long years. Celebs from Paul McCartney, to John Legend, to Sofia Vergara showed up, and some performances were touching enough to bring Ravens and 49ers fans together for a few minutes. Well, maybe. 


NOPD and Bud Light Push for Safe Drinking, DWI Enforcement


There’s a lot of drunken revelry ahead for Super Bowl and Carnival. Nola’s Finest and Bud Light want to make sure merrymakers stumble home, not into their driver’s seats. Walk, cab, or find a sober driver, just don’t get behind the wheel of your car, the pair of organizations say. The brewer and the police are partnering to promote responsible drinking, and they're calling in segways, a green team, and, as ever, super hero references.


Super Sounds: Complete Super Bowl Boulevard Schedule, and Other Weekend Concerts


The New Orleans music scene gets a little bigger this weekend as famous musicians from across the country set their destinations to New Orleans for Super Bowl XLVII.  Every corner of the city offers surprise guests, football players and hip-hop stars of all kinds. On the Riverwalk, it'll begin to look a lot like French Quarter Fest Thursday night with the Quint Davis-produced Super Bowl Blvd. bringing the best of the South Louisian circuit.


Today in New Orleans 1.31.13


It’s chilly again, so bundle up and head to the river for the city’s best local talents. Book lovers head to Octavia Street for an author event, and philanthropists check out “Africa for the Future, on the Avenue. On this day in 1988, Grambling graduate Doug Williams was named MVP of the Super Bowl XXII during his time on the Washington Redskins. He was the first black quarterback ever to start in a Super Bowl Championship game. Now, more to do this Thursday.


David Koechner Reserves Super Bowl Room in Bud Light Hotel


by M.D. Dupuy

Whether Super Bowl viewers are rooting for their team or not, millions tune in for the artful advertising. The art of the funny commercial was perfected by Budweiser, and for Bud Light’s second year as the Bowl’s official beer, they snagged actor and comedian David Koechner. NoDef sat down with the funny man  to talk L.A. vs. LA, professional tips on correspondence, and the Wyndam’s transformation into the Bud Light Hotel.
