Tue Jan 31 - Mon Feb 6

San Francisco has all the makings of a good cowboy movie this week: chili, bourbon and bull riding. The main event locally on Sunday is at Bottom of the Hill for the 4th Annual Stupor Bowl Heavy Metal Chili Cookoff, a friendly competition featuring 20 recipes with awesome heavy-metal names like "Nordic Flesh Feast." And yes, the game will be on (if you still care to watch). The Super Bowl gets the Mystery Science Theater treatment at Super Bowl XLVI: Men in Tights and Giants Fan Fest provides a welcome opportunity for sports fans to forget about the football season altogether. Humor in Hitler's Germany asks if it's ok to laugh about Hitler and Reggie Watts brings his latest comedy show to Mezzanine. Perhaps the most entertaining pairing of the week arrives with Bourbon & Bull Nightlife, featuring whiskey tastings and a mechanical bull at the California Academy of Sciences. Cowboy up, but check your healthcare status first!

Event Photography Internship Opening: Email us samples of your work for consideration. Available to students, for credit only.
