Brooklyn Bowl, The O2, London
Even if you don’t care about American football, catching Superbowl LI (that’s 51 for you non-Latin-educated sports fans) has plenty of other draws, including Lady Gaga singing the US national anthem this year. At this American-themed venue you also get 10 screens, craft beers, exceptionally good fried chicken, and, if you’re looking for a bowl of a different kind, 12 lanes of the 10-pin variety.
Rise of the machines
Science Museum, London
We’re a way off getting our Westworld-style robot theme park, but a close second is the Science Museum’s Robots exhibition. A celebration and study of our obsession with humanoid machines, with over 100 androids, from a 16th-century mechanical mannequin to modern-day bidepal walkers, and a glimpse of our shared robo-future.
Barwell Business Park, Chessington
Forget about lying in with your loved one this Sunday – get to Barwell Business Park for 9am to take part in the 26.2 Road Runners Club Valentine’s 10k race. There’s £100 each for the winning male and female, and a free T-shirt for everyone.
Old Truman Brewery, London
If you’re a connoisseur of ale, you drink craft beer. If you’re a connoisseur of being a connoisseur of ale, you go to the Craft Beer Rising Festival. Over 150 different breweries, street food, live music stages and, if you fancy something really outlandish, there’s a whole room of cider.
