And you choose which winning couple goes home with actually valuable prizes. Hosted by that Carina Magyar.

    Esther's: Ballots & Brewskis

    Ah, the fun seldom pauses, with musical comedy skits, magic, and a political satirical revue with the bustling backdrop of Sixth Street on view through the stagefront window! Esther's rolls out The Trump Musical that's chock full of 45's worst nightmares, the sweatin'-to-the-free-market aerobics of the Paul Ryan Workout, the classic Dysfunctional Family Holiday sketch, and much more. Bonus: That sexy magician Ray Anderson is going to … walk right through a mirror? See it happen here tonight!
    Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $25-35.

    Feb. 23-24. Fri., 9pm; Sat., 9 & 11pm. $10.
