I have to say, Thursday evenings at the Rathskellar (or Terrace) with the Cork n' Bottle String Band have a great deal to recommend them. Lots of fun and no cover, it is a nice transition into evening. The place is has a nice crowd, but it isn't so overly packed that you can't just kick back and relax at a table.

I'm fairly determined to introduce this to some of my people. I don't care if y'all think you don't like bluegrass. You will have fun.

Next Wednesday (2/27) is the start of the Spring 2008 "Tunes at Monona Terrace" series. From 5:30-7 PM, the Cash Box Kings will be rocking the Exhibition Hall with their old-school blues. "Free and open to the public" are the key words here. How can you pass on that?

For those who are unfamiliar with the Cash Box Kings, they are a semi-local band that works an excellent post-war (late 40s, early 50s) Chicago sound. They have a lot of energy and it is hard to see them without wanting to get up and dance.

The series will continue every other Wednesday through April, and the line-up looks pretty sweet. I'm particularly stoked because the location and time will make it very convenient to head over to the Brocach afterwards in time to catch the weekly session.

Julie the Cruise Director gives this her recommendation.

Next Thursday (2/28) there will be a free showing of Once that the Frederic March Play Circle at the Memorial Union, starting at 7:30 (the line to get in will probably start a somewhat earlier, as it will be first come, first seated).

I've been meaning to see this film, since I have heard nothing but good things about it. I intend to catch a bit of Cork n' Bottle and then head upstairs for the movie. Anyone else want to join me?

There are two of them coming up that I'd like to highlight, both at the Wisconsin Union Theater.

The first is next Tuesday (2/26) at 8PM. Speak Theater Arts' "N*gger W*tback Ch*nk" looks like it will be both heavy and engaging. I'm willing to give it a try.

The next is a few weeks out, Sunday 3/09 at 7PM. Ben Karlin, of the Daily Show and the Onion, along with guests such as Dan Savage will be discussing Ben's new book Things I’ve Learned From Women Who’ve Dumped Me. True, it also doesn't *sound* cheery either, but given the speakers, you get bet it will be damn funny.

Both events are free but do require a ticket. Tickets to both events can be picked up at the Wisconsin Union Box Office (in the Memorial Union, just inside the Park St. entrance). (hours here)
