The first people to successfully paint the town red spent more time haphazardly assembling scaffolding and arguing over who got to be the foreman than enjoying the results. Take the planning out of carousing with today's Groupon for the XLV Party at the Cotton Bowl. Choose between two options:
- For $49, you get one general-admission ticket (a $99 value).
- For $99, you get one VIP all-inclusive ticket (a $199 value).
Each Groupon is good for admission on Thursday, Feb. 3; Friday, Feb. 4; or Saturday, Feb. 5, 2011.
To commemorate the Dallas area's first time as host to the Super Bowl, the Cotton Bowl will transform into a 40,000-square-foot club with a tent of circus-shaming proportions pitched on the field. This climate-controlled campsite of celebration will house crystalline bars imported from supervillain ice lairs, a spot-lit dance floor, and performance space to host live entertainment each night. Thursday features the nostalgic melodies of the Village People and Sublime with Rome headlines Saturday's slate. VIP attendees receive access to an exclusive elevated section to watch the throngs of plebeians on ground level, and free drinks from the open bar stocked with premium liquors, which will help fuel celebration dance-offs.
