Throw Me Some Beads, Pasta and a Touchdown!

This year's exceptionally early Mardi Gras has put the biggest contest in football, the Super Bowl, right up against one of the biggest parades of Carnival, the celebrity-studded superkrewe Bacchus.

If you can't decide whether to holler for beads or cheer for your favored team, the French Quarter Italian restaurant Café Giovanni is offering one potential work-around.

Chef Duke LoCicero will hold a Super Sunday Celebration at the restaurant , beginning at 3 p.m. on Feb. 3. Guests can catch the parade as it passes along Canal Street just a block away and duck back into the restaurant to see the game on several large televisions. There are drink specials at the bar and a special Super Sunday menu of pastas, salads and appetizers. Day-long admission is $20 per person.
