The Arizona Cardinals face the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa Bay, Fla.

Bring the Noise
L.A.’s Staples Center welcomes the music world’s biggest stars for the 51st annual Grammy Awards. Coldplay, Radiohead, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Lil Wayne and Ne-Yo will battle it out for album of the year honors, while the special MusiCares person of the year award will go to Neil Diamond.

February 13–20
Recession Luxe
Amid pre-New Year pullouts by big names like Vera Wang and Betsey Johnson, this winter’s Fashion Week in New York has something to prove. With around 30 fewer designers than last season, the schedule’s remaining high-end lines will seek to demonstrate their recession-era relevance.

Ins Kino Berlin
Historic Potsdamer Platz hosts Berlinale, which, with nearly 200,000 tickets sold, can stake its claim as the world’s most heavily attended film festival.

The House Broad Built
It took nearly $200 million and four long years, but the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s new contemporary wing is finally ready to open. Real estate magnate Eli Broad and his wife Edythe are the eponymous force behind the museum. Highlights include works by Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg.

Always Low Prices?
Change is coming to mega-chain Wal-Mart. Just two weeks after new man Mike Duke steps into the CEO boots, the company will release its fourth-quarter sales numbers. The world’s economic turmoil has forecasters doubting that last year’s banner $100 billion take will be replicated.

February 17
Survival Plan
GM and Chrysler face a big hurdle today when they are required to submit a plan for their future viability to the Obama administration. That document is just one of the requirements that come as part of the $13 billion-plus in government loans the automakers have received.

February 20
Imitation of Life
Just when you thought the dust had settled from last year’s Wii and Guitar Hero crazes, here comes another excuse to live digitally. The Sims franchise, which allows players to virtually recreate daily life, turns lucky three with the release of a new version that allows players to explore entire neighborhoods.
