Today’s blart is full of crazy good times. Some of which I will be taking part in, others I’ll be sitting out and filling myself with jealousy (rather than BBQ).
The first wallpaper you’ll see is a t-shirt design for my cousin’s competitive BBQ team. I’ve never participated in competitive BBQ before, but just those words strung together make me salivate. Their team is called “Rub. Smoke. Eat.” and I assure you were I living closer to the DC area, I would be participating in that last part. As it stands, though, I’m just going to have to buy my own BBQ and pretend like there’s a competition going on.
The next two wallpapers are for upcoming shows that I’m super excited about. You’re probably familiar with the first one if you’ve read this blart on any sort of regular basis. It’s a show called Nightcaps, and it’s hosted by the fabulous Puterbaugh Sisterz, Adam Guerino, and DJ Greg Haus (who I’ve yet to meet, but I’m sure he’s just as fabulous as the other three). This show is a great time, and while it’s a late night show, that just makes it all the more crazy. Check it out the last Friday of every month at Berlin on Belmont.
The other show is an upcoming variety show by the new theater company from a couple of promising young Marquette grads, The Rolling Company. The show is called RoCo:ROCK, and they’ve made it their goal to provide as much true variety in this upcoming show as they could possibly muster. If you’re a fan of the arts, this show will be the where it’s at for you. There will be one act plays, a short story reading, art displays, dance pieces, just to name some of the arts being showcased. It’s on the first three thursdays of May (6, 13, and 20), and it’s only $15 to get in (and that includes a free drink).
I can’t wait for it.
I’ve also included links to the original posters for Nightcaps and RoCo:ROCK. If you feel like sending those links to anyone who might be interested, I’m sure all involved would be very grateful. At the very least, check out the shows. You won’t be disappointed.
