Tired of going to bars to listen to hear other people's music?
Get off your stool and get in the game. John Harvard's in Manchester is hosting its weekly open mic night tonight. If you think you've got what it takes, or just want to heckle all those troubled singer/songwriters; the show starts at 9 p.m. And, if you get booed off the stage, you can always drown your sorrows in the brew pub's beers, which are made on-site.
Looking to dine on a dime?
Plenty of restaurants offer meal specials to draw in business in this (insert adjective here) economy. At the Litchfield Saltwater Grille in Litchfield, you can enjoy a four-course meal of soup, salad, entree and dessert, for just $18.
And at Seahorse Restaurant in Noank, you and that special someone can get two entrees and a bottle of wine for $21.99. It's almost cheaper than eating at home and there's no chance of burning down your kitchen.
Have you had your mid-life crisis yet? Or are you still looking forward to it? Now you can see what those wonderful years are all about, and it's set to music!
"Mid-Life! The Crisis Musical" is playing at the Seven Angels Theater in Waterbury. The small musical from Minneapolis has taken theaters across the country by storm, with its no-holds barred assessment of mid-life, from the convertibles, to the reading glasses, to the proctology exams. Call the theater at 203*757-4676 for tickets.
