Saturday, 10/11, 7:30pm, at Solera. $50. For the low low price of $200, you can attend the VIP portion of the event which starts at 5:30. Semi-formal. “Masks encouraged.” I’ll be there, probably sans mask.

David already gave you the scoop on the Saint Paul Art Crawl.

Wilde. $20 or $15 with a Fringe button (this is the annual benefit show, so prices are a little higher than usual). Saturday, October 11, at Bryant Lake Bowl.

This last one is mostly a reminder to myself that I have punches left on my Brave New Workshop Punchy Pass and I want to see The Lion, the Witch, and the War Hero; Or is McCain Able? before the run ends on November 8th. Need to see it before Election Day. That last weekend of shows could be pretty painful to sit through. Buy tickets online or call the box office at 612-332-6620.
