Okay so I woke up at 4 am and no one had any reactions to the game on my Facebook feed. How was that possible? Well clearly my friends don’t have the staying power and we had all gone to sleep before the end of the game. It is rainy and we are tired but the weekend is here nonetheless. Stay home and enjoy a book under a warm blanket, or take a nap and head out to do something.
Catch a Show
Measure for Measure in Russian is an unique Shakespeare production. It feels like the old theatrical experiences with a chorus, simple costumes, a clean set and lighting design but in this century. If you are a fan of theatre, flipping ideas on their head, and Shakespeare then don’t miss it. This weekend is the last opportunity to see it.
Take a trip down memory lane or immerse yourself in 1980’s Los Angeles and have a blast with the cast and crew of Rock of Ages. It’s a giant 1980’s party and you are invited.
