Per usual, the Seminole Heights staple has two solid weekend shows this weekend, including a Friday gig featuring St. Petersburg blues and soul outfit Someday Honey.

If you must be out of the house on game day, you can take in the Ella’s Soul Food Sunday brunch and fill your earholes with the sounds of Tampa-by-way-of-Detroit duo the Hummingbirds. The Americana-country band’s cover of Merle Haggard’s cover of Dean Martin’s “Little Ole Wine Drink Me” goes perfectly with chicken and waffles.

After the music, Ella’s hosts a SBLV watch party, so you probably want to make reservations for a table. If you’d rather watch the Bucs at home, you can get a “Super-Itis” to-go package which includes a crap ton of smoke meats and family-sized sides (more on that here).

More info on the Super Bowl weekend events at Ella’s Americana Folk Art Cafe are available on Facebook.
