Ain't no party like a Super Bowl party! As football fans all over the country stock up on chicken wings, chips, and beer in anticipation of the Feb. 3 match-up between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, sports-loving Hollywood stars are getting in on the festivities, too.
Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Alicia Keys, and Jennifer Hudson are in New Orleans to perform at Super Bowl events, but plenty of other celebs are in town just to have a good time. On Friday, Feb. 1, Audi kicked things off with an exclusive cocktail event at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, where Ravens fans Will Ferrell and Anna Faris mingled with 49ers diehard Jeremy Renner.
Faris, looking very biker chic in a black Alice & Olivia dress under a black leather jacket, attended the bash with her brother while her husband, Parks and Recreation star Chris Pratt, stayed at home with their 5-month-old son, Jack. She was overheard saying that the Super Bowl was her "favorite holiday of the year."
Also at the Audi party were New Girl actresses Hannah Simone and Olivia Munn, both of whom rocked the red carpet in green mini-dresses. Munn, in a neon Naven frock, gushed that she is a huge football fan and has attended the Super Bowl for three of the last four years.
Elsewhere in the Big Easy, Neil Patrick Harris joined Snoop Lion and David Arquette at Jackson Brewery for the Playboy Party on Feb. 1. Guests there enjoyed performances by rapper B.o.B. and Trombone Shorty, as well as cocktails by Crown Royal and hors d'oeuvres spiced with Tabasco by celeb chef John Besh. They also had the opportunity to create care packages for U.S. troops.
