Saturday, January 19
National Day of Service
To commemorate those who have served, a public event will be held on the National Mall from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Many special guests will be speaking, including Honorary Chair Chelsea Clinton, Iraq war veteran and Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, PIC Co-Chair Eva Longoria, and the Washington Children's Choir. The weatherman is calling for no rain and sunny skies, but with temps in the lower 50s, a coat will still be needed for this outdoor event.

Big Easy Style for Super Bowl XLVII

Seven years ago, Hurricane Katrina devastated the Big Easy, but the citizens and the spirit of New Orleans were resilient and built back, some say stronger and better. Being named the destination for Super Bowl XLVII was a cherry on top of a headline year. Transplants to the area will tell you that New Orleanians are football fanatics; everyone hangs their Saints flags and wears their football jerseys, and, on game day, New Orleans gets almost eerily quiet as everyone is huddled around the TV to watch their beloved team. But even though the New Orleans Saints will not make an appearance at this year's big dance, the townspeople of New Orleans will be sure to show all who visit a good time.

Whether you're going to the game or just happen to find yourself in New Orleans the weekend of February 3, you're almost guaranteed a great time. Even the Bleacher Report named this city as the "Best NFL City to Party In." So here are a few tips on getting around and what to see/do over Super Bowl Weekend.

Deluxe room, Hotel Teatro

Located exactly where you want to be in Denver, Colorado, Hotel Teatro occupies the cornerstone of the city's theater district. This downtown enclave sits in a restored century-old building originally built in the early 1900s as the Denver Tramway Building, and is now restored with careful efforts taken to preserve original touches like marble flooring and wainscoting. Its central location allows for an easy walk to the best of Denver's cultural offerings—the Denver Performing Arts Center and Colorado Convention Center provide a meeting place for musicals, ballets, and symphony performances; Coors Field and the Pepsi Center house some of the city's best athletic events; and the 16th Street Mall boasts local boutiques and street performers showcasing their best acts. The only problem with Hotel Teatro is getting yourself out of the hotel itself.
