Where The Party's At- Head over to Shrine Asian Kitchen, Lounge, & Nightclub to meet a boxer-turned-model. McKey Sullivan (you know, the one from America's Next Top Model) will co-host Friday Night Lights with contestant Sheena Satana. The leggy ladies will get the crowd fired up as the DJ turns up the beat.
The Who- There's a powerful show at The Hartt School Theatre Division of the University of Hartford this weekend. It's called The Who's Tommy - but a warning, it's not for kids. It's based on the original rock opera by The Who. It's about a young boy who becomes deaf, dumb, and blind after witnessing the murder of his mother's lover by his own father.

The event features live local acts, DJ's, an art exhibit, a fashion show, food, poetry, and wine. The money raised goes to UConn Health Center for breast cancer research.

Animals- Here's a great show you won't want to miss - Nickelback. They'll be performing with Seether and Saving Abel at Mohegan Sun Sunday night. The last time we saw Nickelback was about a year ago, and they put on one heck of a show. Energy filled, loud, and pumped with pyros.
Take 2- Tuscany Grill in Middletown is trying again for the 8th Annual Ice Carving and Chowder Competition. It was snowed out last week, so this week they'll bring in the ice, the chowda', and the tasty Hooker beers.
The Blues- Grammy Award winner James "Superharp" Cotton is performing at Infinity Music Hall & Bistro in Norfolk. The guy formed his James Cotton Blues Band back in '66 and has shared the stage with the likes of B.B. King, The Rolling Stones, Johnny Winter, the Allman Brothers, Santana, Bonnie Raitt, Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin, Sam and Dave, and The Grateful Dead. That's one heck of a resume. You can catch the living legend of the blues for a little as $25.
