It being a federal holiday, many people are taking the day off from working and partying.
• Black Snake Moan premiere. Chelsea West Cinemas, 333 W. 23rd St., nr. Eighth Ave., 5 p.m. Expected to show are stars Samuel L. Jackson, Christina Ricci, and S. Epatha Merkerson. Considering Jackson chains Ricci to a radiator and quotes Scripture at her so they can both learn to love again, expect some heavy drinking here.
