February is the month of the Super Bowl, Mardi Gras and Valentine's Day, but there's really only one holiday that counts: Groundhog Day. Not because we take that shadow stuff seriously, but because Groundhog Day is silly, and silly things -- especially those having to do with Groundhog Day -- make us think of Bill Murray. And we love Bill Murray. Again and again and again.

The folks at Crash 45 feel the same way, and that's why Murray Mania, an evening of everything Murray and Groundhog Day, will commence there tomorrow night at 9 p.m. with DJ Gonda spinning Bill Murray soundtrack tunes, a screening of the classic Murray film, groundhog-themed drinks and more. Yay, party!
