    Texas Gothic Valentine's Show

    The show description goes like this: "Ma and Pa Gothic have lived on the Texas Gothic Farm & Ranch located at the exact center of Texas (just outside of Mercury, Texas) for more than 50 years. And after living for the better part of a century deep in the heart of Texas, they’ve seen a thing or two, learned a thing or two, and are pleased as punch to tell you a thing or two! And, whether you like it or not, you’ll probably learn a thing or two!" Which sounds like a potential hoot just from the get-go, right? But, tell you what: As embodied by the double-strength talents of Janet Maykus and Tom Booker, the homespun Ma and Pa Gothic are a treasure of acerbic wit and impeccable comedic timing. Bonus: This month's guest is Forbidden Fruit's own Lynn Raridon.
    Sat., Feb. 8, 8pm. $10.
