5 things

Last weekend in June, guys. That really means nothing – just thought you should know. Now! On to what you should *do* this weekend.

Last weekend in June, guys. That really means nothing – just thought you should know. Now! On to what you should *do* this weekend.

1. Michael Winslow at Richmond Funny Bone

I know, most of you are probably saying, “Who is Michael Winslow?” Well, you can do two things to find out: 1) Click on his name up there. And you should. Because his website is absurd. Or 2) Watch this to jog your memory. I’ll wait…

Yes! The dude with all the noises! This will either be the most entertaining or annoying night of your life. Either way, it will give you something to talk about. Thursday, June 25th, 7:30pm, 11800 W Broad St # 1090, $20.

2. City Dance Program’s Annual Recital at the Landmark Theater

I’m not going to get all “clever” here. This is such a great organization, and if you have the chance to head out and support them, you should. AND you have two performances to choose from. The ballet classes will be performing “Over the Rainbow” (a story ballet based on “The Wizard of Oz”) on Friday night. The tap, jazz, modern, and hip hop classes will perform “Back to the Future” on Saturday morning. Friday, June 26th at 7pm and Saturday, June 27th at 11am, 6 N. Laurel Street, $15 for adults, $10 for seniors.

3. Driving Miss Daisy at the Barksdale

I have no idea if the play is similar to the movie, but even the suggestion of it being as good makes me want to go see this. My enthusiasm for it is probably based mostly on the fact that I can’t wait to become an old Southern woman who yells at people all day (as opposed to what I am now: a young Southern woman who yells at people all day). Opens Friday, June 26th, 8pm (runs through August 2nd), 1601 Willow Lawn Drive, $38. Go here for tickets.

4. Scooper Bowl at the Science Museum

Join the folks over at the SMVA as they kick off their Summer of Fin (Oh, puns! Whoever said you were the lowest form of humor was an idiot!) with Sharks, Coral Reef Adventure and Dolphins in the IMAX®DOME, plus touch tanks, sand sculptures AND all the ice cream you can eat! Saturday, June 27th, 10am to 4pm, 2500 Broad Street, $4 for museum members, $12 general admission.

5. Jaws at Movieland

I have so many things to say about how excited I am about the prospect of seeing JAWS on the BIG SCREEN while sitting in those comfy chairs at Movieland, but I’m going to be in stupid IOWA this weekend and will miss it and am very sad about that. So you should all go. And wear black arm bands emblazoned with “VAL” in my honor. Sunday, June 28th, 11am, 1301 N. Boulevard, $5.50 for general admission, $4.50 with your Criterion Club Card (Mimosas cost extra. Pour one out for me, homies.)

Know of anything else going on this week? Leave it in the comments.

(If you have an event coming up that you want help promoting, let us know. It just might end up making the list!)
