Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered.

Super Bowl party requirements: gorge yourself on wings and drink dozens of beers. Where you accomplish these feats is up to you. If you're not a Broncos fan headed to the Denver-loyal Riverview Tavern (1958 W. Roscoe) or a Seahawks fan off to Newport Bar & Grill (1344 W. Newport), there's an all-you-can-eat buffet at Reggie's (2105 S. State), a chili cookoff at Quenchers (2401 N. Western), and a Superfans party at Smoke Daddy (1804 W. Division).

Ephebophilia follows a couple threatened with foreclosure who resort to extorting money from pedophiles in online chat rooms. Keith Griffith recommends the play, calling it "a sweet, unsettling meditation on the dangers of love and the evanescence of justice." See it at Collaboraction in the Flat Iron Building.

"Beyond Swastika and Jim Crow: Jewish Refugee Scholars at Black Colleges" explores the relationships between African-American scholars in the Jim Crow era and the German-Jewish refugees who taught them. See the exhibit at the DuSable Museum of African American History, and read Danette Chavez's write-up here.
