Thursday is the new Friday! Except you probably still have to work on Friday, so actually Thursday is still well, just Thursday. However, the good news is that Thursday means you can officially start planning your weekend adventures! Yes, the weather is kinda cruddy, but when did that ever stop anyone in the Northwest from having fun!? (You can spot the people not having fun. They're from California.)

Regardless of the weather, we have plenty of fun things going down this weekend. Take a look and plan accordingly! Happy Thursday (or whatever day you're reading this on)!

The Gonzales Cantata- The Gonzales Cantata is a musical setting/reaction to the drama and politics of events leading up to the resignation of disgraced United States Attorney General Alberto Gonzales in 2007. In the composer's own words: “In 2007, NPR news ran several stories featuring electrifying audio excerpts from the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings into wrongdoings by Gonzales’ Justice Department, and like many listeners, I was shocked by the tension and emotion in the voices of the men (and the single woman) involved.” Three performances only; get tickets now!
