Super Bowl weekend

"The Fresh Prince" himself, Will Smith, is rumored to be coming to P-town for the big game. Same with George Clooney, Vince Vaughn, and numerous other glitterati who'll jet into the Valley sometime during the next 72 hours to partake in the non-stop partying going down in honor of Super Bowl XLII. In addition to all the celebs and beautiful people, an all-star lineup of marquee-level DJs will be manning the turntables at hotspots across the Valley this weekend. The 944 Super Village, 7135 East Via Soleri Drive (near Scottsdale and Camelback roads) in Scottsdale, is gonna be ground zero for superstar entertainment, with DJs Roonie G. and Ravi Drums opening for Wyclef Jean on Friday, February 1, followed by Paul Oakenfold and DJ Roctakon getting spin sessions on Saturday, February 2. Admission starts at $116.50. Visit www.944game.com. If the massive fete is too crowded for your tastes, head for SIX Lounge, 7316 East Stetson Drive in Scottsdale, where Roctakon will be spinning on Friday, along with L.A.'s Marshall Barnes (the joint also hosts DJ Jazzy Jeff on Saturday). Doors open at 10 p.m. both nights. Call 480-390-5615 for tickets.
