The Pre-Halloween Rush
This weekend is filled to the brim with tons of cool things to do. Too many, in fact for one person to attend. So get your cloning machine cranked up, and check out the rampant niftiness.
The Big LeBOWLski
Saturday night, at the Dunbar Bowling Center, 1212 Ohio Avenue in Dunbar, you can experience the classic Coen Brothers film, “The Big Lebowski,” the way it was originally meant to be seen–in a bowling alley! Adults 21 and up can watch the neo-Noir classic, then follow up with some late-night bowling action.
If you haven’t seen this film, you should know that bowling looms large in its plot. The evening kicks off at 9 PM with some fine adult beverages served while perfectly appropriate tunes are spun. The movie starts around 10 PM, and following the flick, bowling hi-jinks will ensue. Ten bucks gets you in the door, and that includes the movie, bowling and shoe rental.
We are so lucky to have something this cool happening in the area. Some folks would cut off their toe to go to an event like this. You get a great movie, viewed in good company, with fun music and classy rented shoes. The bowling ties it all together. Attendees are encouraged to dress as their favorite character from the movie. And please, do not request any Eagles tunes.
A Memorial Concert
Another great cause is Covenant House. “Hollywood Comes to the Red Carpet,” a Covenant House benefit drag show, takes place at The Red Carpet, 318 Elizabeth Street, Charleston, at * PM. Check out this article for more details.
Rousting Rabble All Weekend
The Bluie Parrot hosts a weekend of diverse music, anchored by The Rabble Rousers, Charleston’s hip hop poet laureates. Friday night the Rousers mix it up with the Jazz Rock of The Rick Perdue Band and the Metal stylings of Strangled By Statues. Saturday night the Rabble Rousers are joined by RFC guests, the Horrror-Rap machine known as BRAIN TRAUMA, plus additional acts yet to be approved by the coolness police.
