Splitting Up For Super Bowl Sunday

Are you trapped in a relationship in which one party lives for the action of Super Bowl Sunday while the other doesn't give a damn?

Never fear, the clever folks of Kimpton hotels have a solution for an amicable (if temporary) split. On Feb. 4, send the football fan to Topaz Bar for an all-American Super Bowl party with "Lovie Dogs" chili dogs with sweet potato fries (two for $9), "Hail Manning" potato skins ($6) and "Dungy Dip" potato chips and French onion dip ($3), among other team-themed snacks and cocktails.

Quite a different scene will unfold at Bar Rouge's Super Bowl spa day, where reruns of "Desperate Housewives" will beat out the game for screen time and from 6-9 p.m., guests can get mini manicures and hand massages ($10 a pop). The bar will be shaking up discounted frilly cocktails, like the Liquid Revival (brandy, bitters, simple syrup and Sprite for $6). A full bar menu will also be available.

Both events will run from 3 p.m. to midnight.

Miss your honey during the game? Lucky for you, the bars are only a few blocks apart.
