After actually watching almost all of the Super Bowl (surprising, I know), all I want to do is buy American cars and drink American beer. Does Bud Light Platinum remind anyone else of Bawls? Pretty sure I just invented the new Four Loko.
Your best bet tonight is Coyote, a new play by Kevin Kautzman about a pair of Arizona minutemen. It runs through the weekend at Nouveau 47 in Fair Park, but tonight happens to be industry night. You can pay whatever you wish for a ticket and bring your own booze. Put that stash of airplane bottles to good use. The theater company gave Coyote a reading during their new works festival, and liked it so much they decided on a full production. I haven’t seen it yet, but I’ve heard good things. Post-play, head to the Amsterdam for live jazz, since you’ll be in the neighborhood anyway.
I’ve never been much for horror movies, but the Texas Theatre has a good one that sounds delightfully schmaltzy with just a bit of spook. I enjoy ghost stories way more than the weird sadistic blood and guts stuff, anyway. Peter reviewed The Innkeepers last week on FrontRow, and describes one of the leads as a “sputter-lipped, Dwight Schrute-come-Elvis Costello.” Which means I’m sold.
And, sigh, fine. It’s apparently National Frozen Yogurt Day, so you can get free yogurt at any Yogurtland location. If that appeals.
For more to do tonight, go here.
