Weekanerd: Weekend Edition - Midnight Madness, Free Beverages, and Cosplay Cleverly Disguised as an Art Class

FRIDAY, JUNE 29, 2007
Fans of 1970s Grit Flicks will want to get in on this midnight movie goodness. Enjoy the classic film perhaps best known for being immortalied on stage by the inimitable Max Fisher Players. Tickets are $10.75.

Good. Lord. Gorgeous cabaret performers dressed up as X-Men characters for your sketching pleasure. Even if you think you can't draw, this is your chance for some very enjoyable practice. $10 at the door, or $15 if you want to book your table in advance here.
Featuring a live set by the Ne'er Do Evers, "free beverages" and of course, writer/artist Jamie Tanner. The comic looks interesting, the main character resembles a cross between Drinky Crow and Mo Willems' bus-driving Pidgeon. Read excerpts here.
