What You're Doing Today (Besides Watching the Game)

Catch the Chinese New Year Parade, an art exhibit or a valentines workshop

Yes, it's Super Bowl Sunday, but unless you're some sort of NFL masochist, you're probably not going to be watching all 15 hours of pre-game programming. Get out and burn some calories before the food fest, we mean, Big Game.

HAPPY 4707: It's the Year of the Ox, and it's time to celebrate. The Chinese New Year Parade will march through Chicago's Chinatown neighborhood today complete with a 100-foot-long dragon float and the traditional lion dance. The parade steps off at Wentworth Avenue and 24th Street and wends its way up Wentworth to Cermak Road. 1PM, free.

GET CREATIVE: Check out the "Creative Artist Association Exhibition" at the South Shore Cultural Center, featuring paintings, drawings, sculpture and ceramics by African American artists, who will be in attendance from 2-4PM. The exhibition is open from 9AM-6PM; free.

ONE AND ONLY: Today is February 1, which means that Valentine's Day is around the corner. Make your sweetie a green card (as in eco-friendly, not immigration-related) at "Green Love Notes," a natural and recycled paper valentines workshop at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. 11AM-2PM, free with $6-$9 museum admission.
