This Week’s Festivities

Official tour poster.

A few things for the calendar this week(end):

1. Aziz Ansari is performing at Town Hall in mid-town tomorrow night. Tickets are sold out via Ticketmaster, but there seem to be some floating around Craigslist.

2. Friday marks the Third Annual Arkansas Razorbacks BBQ at Overlook Bar. $25 buys all-you-can-eat pork, burgers, dogs, grilled corn, cheese grits, barbeque beans and fried okra with all the fix-ins. For an extra $30, you can partake in the four-hour open bar of Bud Light drafts.

3. Football this Saturday: Arkansas vs. Georgia, Auburn vs. Clemson, LSU vs. Mississippi State, Ole Miss vs. Tulane, Florida vs. Tennessee, and more.

On the horizon: Eastbound & Down returns (next Sunday!!!). My Morning Jacket (yay) plays Terminal 5 (boo) October 18, 19, 21, 22, and 23. And the South rises in the theater with A Free Man of Color depicting a colorful pre-Purchase Louisiana (opening Nov. 18, Vivian Beaumont Theater, Lincoln Center); Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, starring Southerner Benjamin Walker, on Broadway (opening Oct. 13, Jacobs Theater); and The Little Foxes, about a circa 1900 aristocratic Southern family, opening September 21 at the New York Theater Workshop.

    Don’t forget UK plays Akron – I know, not the most exciting game in the world. But, the Cats then take on Florida next weekend, so that makes up for the snore of a game this weekend. 🙂 Can you tell I’m partial to my alma mater?

    Wish I could see Aziz Ansari – love him no “Parks and Recreation.” His interview with Terry Gross was great – love that he’s from South Carolina.

    Love your blog!
