It's … Hideoutrageous!

There's a stage upstairs, there's a stage downstairs, there's coffee all over the place and all sorts of shows here. This Thursday brings you a Threefer of improv. On Friday, enjoy some improvised Big Bash fanciness, followed by the award-winning Parallelogramophonograph dazzling the late-night stage; and, on Saturday, after that genre-riddled Story to the Death, welcome to the Depression-era, moxie-forward, never-say-die, musically enhanced world of Orphans!. Or even the less-musical Neighborhood, lately displaced from TNM and now rocking the happier Hideout boards. And following that? The can't-miss competitive improv donnybrook of Maestro.

Easy Tiger

“Slow down and stay awhile” is the motto of this upscale diner. While a split-level bakeshop and beer garden may seem an unlikely pairing, the interplay among handcrafted breads, house-cured meats, and a lovingly curated beer menu is surprisingly successful.
