The Impossible Dream

We've got your Friday Night Schedule.

Did Rebecca just shit her pants? Depends.

It's getting close to the 25th and for those of y'all still in town there is plenty to do… so I've helped you out by creating your schedule for this lovely (cold, gloomy) Friday.

Your night begins at 7:45pm when you roll up to the Off Center to partake in Dionysus in '69. It's the Rude Mechs' attempt to restage the original 1968 production, and it's so very queer. You better bring a make-out buddy, prepare to meet one, or otherwise you'll be wound up tighter than a Christmas nutcracker.

Speaking of nuts: You'll then head over to Lamberts for Rebecca Havemeyer and Stanley Roy's annual Christmas shindig. This year's installment is titled The Impossible Dream and it's the best yet (and did we see produced by C3? My my!).

Finally take that floozy Rebecca out to Oilcan Harry's to catch the 1am performance of Cazwell. Word has it that Caz and Rebecca used to hang out in the day, and it'll be a show worth catching. It's OH's way of saying thanks to their loyal customers. And how!
