Friday is here…and, it’s the 13th!
(Shit…when did I turn into Adrian Ryan?) (Kidding! I Love Adrian! Adrian and Dom are the only interesting writers LEFT at The Stranger…)
Digression. It’s Friday, April 13th and as we celebrate the death of 1700 people in the icy waters of the North Atlantic 100 years ago and the impending doom of Tax Day, we can relax TODAY/TONIGHT with a huge list of entertainment options. We’re going to go to Three Dollar Bill’s Dinner and Auction tonight at Herban Feast and then probably a cruise up Pike to our favorite events like Lezbro with DJ’s L.A. Kendall and Tony Burns and Hussler at Pony…if it’s not a crowded sweaty mass of flannel.
We could also suggest checking out our friends at The Balagan Theater and their current show, “Death, Sex: Election Season” which is a night of short 10 minute plays dealing with…uh, DEATH/SEX/POLITICS. AND, the Solo Performance Festival, (SPF) at Theatre Off Jackson in the I.D. has two amazing shows: “Miss Fanny’s Fun Box” with the awesome Kate Jaeger, and Eleanor O’Brien’s “Good Girls’ Guide: Dominatrix for Dummies”.
Here’s the List O’ Options for Today…check out the full Weekend Calendar HERE!
