Extra Basketball Tickets

Hi! This is super short notice but I have 2 extra tickets to the Nebraska vs. Minnesota basketball game on Thursday at 6pm. One of the ticket holders has to work and the other is staying in Colombia for an extra few days. Would one or two of you be interested in coming along? They're not the best seats and you'll have to put up with me rooting for Nebraska, but they'd be free! Post here or memail me if you're interested. -Ian

Howard the Duck

Como Dockside is running a Thursday night trivia-and-film series featuring the best movies of 1986-87. Someone must have misread that list or maybe lost a bet because next week's feature is Lucasfilm's crowning achievement, Howard the Duck. [more inside]

Yes, and...Improv Night Volume 2

Looking at everyone's schedules, it seems like our best bet will be October 8. There are three shows and you can buy a pass for all three, which I might just do. The schedule is:

8:00 pm Election! The improvised comedy election you wish was real – not to be confused with the real election you wish was an improvised comedy

9:30 pm Super Good Super Good takes simple ideas to their furthest physical and emotional distance. Let’s go! The ensemble cast is Anna Tobin, Erik Neilson, Gubby Kubik, Lupe Muraszewski, and Molly Chase.

10:30 pm Attenborough: The improvised wildlife documentary Attenborough : The Improvised Wildlife Documentary Explore the wonders of the animal kingdom in glorious, live, improvised 3-D.

Lady and the Trump

I thought I'd be able to get free tickets for everyone, but they had a two ticket limit for the nonprofit discount. Sorry :( If you work at a nonprofit, call 612-332-6620 to reserve tickets for FREE.

About the Show: No matter what happens this election cycle, only one thing is for certain: it WILL be satirized in our 2016 election show, "Lady and the Trump."

"Lady and the Trump" will feature BNW cast members Lauren Anderson, Andy Kraft, Ryan Nelson, Tom Reed and Taj Ruler. The show will be directed by Caleb McEwen. Josie Just will be the music director, and Matthew Vichlach will provide technical direction.

Weekend Improv

We're going to go see some improv at the HUGE Theater! I figure we'll watch the first show and then decide if we want to stay or where to go from there. It's not hard to find, but there is limited parking. The neighborhood to the south usually has enough spots.
