Hippies, clowns and kitties all over town tonight — oh my!


Huzzah, another weekend arrives! You'll want to start it off right by getting out of the house, away from the office, and out into something awesome. There's plenty of awesome in our event listings and Staff Picks, so perhaps your planning should start there.

Here are some highlights I found for Friday, April 17: 

THEATER | The Friends of the Bing and Modern Theater Coeur d'Alene bring Broadway musical Hair to the stage Friday and Saturday. You already have that "Age of Aquarius" song running through your head, don't you?

PERFORMANCE | Hey, the circus is in town! If your town is Spokane Valley, anyway, where the Shrine Circus is setting up shop at the Spokane Valley Mall this weekend. 

BENEFIT | The Spokane Humane Society is hosting a Kitten Shower, where you can learn all about the needs they have for taking care of these little critters. Read more about it in our Cat Friday blog

ETC | Eastern Washington University is hosting the National Conference on Undergraduate Research through Saturday, and while that might not sound like a party, it's a great way to scratch your intellectual itch by checking out some incredible new findings from academics across the globe gathering in Cheney to share. I know I'm not the only nerd around here who thinks this is awesome!
