Need some regular Thursday night plans? The folks at Brokedown Palace have your back with Touch of Grey Thursdays. It’s a night of all things Grateful, with sit-ins, guest appearances, and signature Dead tunes. If you love The Grateful Dead, this place is for you. Not the biggest Dead fan? Well, they also love the Cornhuskers. Yes, it is a Deadhead Husker bar. Didn’t know that’s what you needed in life? Now you do. Jam out to more details here.
If you’re anything like my mom, you can’t get enough of watching others dance, whether live and in-person or on TV shows, such as So You Think You Can Dance. If this sounds like you, Ailey II at Orpheum Theater is a performance you won’t want to miss. Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater marked its 60th anniversary in March of last year, and they are still going strong. Get your tickets here now, as they’re going fast.
