It’s that time of year again where everyone and their mother becomes a diehard football fan, chugging beer and spilling wing sauce all over the place. This Super Bowl Sunday, you’ll want to be at the BrisketTown Super Tailgate Bowl-B-Cue at Villain in Williamsburg. The 5,000-square-foot event space will be filled with couches, tables, two bars, delicious BBQ from Delaney Barbecue and the biggest screen you’ve ever seen. The “Linebacker” ticket ($55) includes access to the space, your first drink, and a Texas three-meat BBQ plate. The “Quarterback” includes access to the space, a Texas three-meat BBQ plate, and unlimited drinks.

Here’s what else we’re Reel Psyched about this week.

The Opening of Misty Beethoven

A pornographic retelling of Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, about a sexologist who attempts to transform a prostitute into the world’s greatest lover.

There’s no saying that you’ll actually shed any pounds at this workout party, but you will surely be motivated by the greatest workout video to ever grace TV screens and VCRs across America: Jazzercise!

Liquid Sky

The most successful independent film of 1983 takes you to a very 1980s NYC, fueled by drugs, weirdos, models and a small spaceship. The all-synth score was composed by Slava Tsukerman, Clive Smith and Brenda Hutchinson, and is considered an enormous influence on electroclash.
