  • Laundry & Bourbon with Lonestar

    Laundry and Bourbon with Lonestar, two companion one act plays set in backyards of a small Texas town. Three ladies come together to talk about their life's ups and downs. Lonestar follows the life of three small town boys and the events that have shaped them. Both shows give us highs & lows with humor spread around, for good measure.

    Canje

    Is there anything more romantic than the Caribbean? That's a rhetorical question, perhaps, but you can happily grok the answer at Tavel Bristol-Joseph's award-winning restaurant, where a six-course shared menu of island-inflected flavors includes a take-home dessert. Serving suggestion: Maybe duck into the kissing booth while you're there, you lovesick loons, and make with a little PDA?
