To commemorate its 40th season, Saturday Night Live‘s cast and crew have put together a three-hour anniversary special, premiering live this Sunday at 8 pm on NBC. You heard right: this week, SNL is on Sunday. It’s going to be so legendary that they wanted to make sure that whatever weekend debauchery you have planned wouldn’t interfere. So you have no excuse for missing it, gross couple sitting on the same side of the table during Valentine’s Day dinner.

New York’s hottest club is Drunk Alone On Your Couch. It has everything: rogue crumbs from that night you ate cookies straight off your lap, a hairball from a cat you don’t even own, the faint lingering scent of resignation and this cocktail from colonial America. Stefon approves.
