The North Door

Locally created, original content – sketches, music, film, dance, comedy, all lubricated by North Door drink specials – presented by your hosts Chris Gibson, Cami Alys, and Kenny Redding Jr., and featuring the best guests around. (Bonus: This hour of entertainment power is followed by the Jeff Mills-emcee'd "Bar-lympics" live game show.) Mon., July 14, 7pm. $10.
