Random Thoughts – Jonas Brothers ‘n Stuff

Is silver the new black???

  • I’m saddened to hear that the Borders on Michigan Ave. will be closing within the next year.  😦    This has been my hangout whenever friends/family come to visit, and want to shop ALL day on Michigan Avenue.  Now where do I seek refuge?

target_bullseyeSeeing how much Target contributes to the local arts scene, I promise (for Lent?) to do more of my shopping there.  For example, check out Target’s 2-for-1 ticket deals at Congo Square, Steppenwolf, and Lookingglass Theatre, as well as $20 Sundays at Goodman

Jumping on the Blago bandwagon

blago Second City (and its TV spin-off “Saturday Night Live“) has always capitalized on current events, but it’s amazing that Second City was able to create an entire show, songs and all, in just a few wekks..  This super-funny and super-successful troupe birthed the show “Rod Blagojevich Superstar” – and when the first skit’s opening with the lyrics are:

“Rod Blagojevich Superstar, are you as nuts as we think you are?”,

you know you’re in for an evening of knee-capping and wise-cracking fun, all courtesy of our state’s coo-coo ex-governor.   

Created by Ed Furman (book writer) and T.J. Shanoff (music/lyrics), …Superstar has immediately fostered some great reviews.   For info and tickets, click here.
