OUT AND ON SCREEN: A film festival appealing to lovers of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender films opens up tonight in Hartford. The 11th annual EROS Film Festival presented by Out Film CT will screen an eclectic mix of new and old films and documentaries at CineStudio Theatre at Trinity College. Among the films being shown tonight through Sunday is "Little Ashes," which depicts the love story between surrealist painter Salvador Dali and poet/revolutionary Frederico García Lorca, and "Patrik, Age 1.5," a film about a gay couple who tries to adopt a 15-year-old homophobe. The festival kicks off tonight with "Rivers Wash Over Me," about a gay teen who moves in with his relatives in small-town Alabama. Tickets are $8 per film. Click here for screening times.
THE EAGLE HAS LANDED: We were thinking of going with BOY OF SUMMER for the headline, but it's just too cold, and it hurts to think that baseball is about to be done for the season. Anyway, original Eagle and seven-time Grammy Award winner Don Henley is bringing his solo act to the Performance Theater at MGM Grand at Foxwoods tonight. Tickets are $60, $80 and $90.
LOVE IS IN THE AIR?: Everyone's favorite aphrodisiac is on the menu tonight in New Haven. An Evening of Oysters at Sage American Grill & Oyster Bar will highlight the history of oystering in New Haven and Long Island Sound. The evening will also feature a presentation about the current state oystering in the area. Oh yeah, and there's an oyster tasting! It's $55 per person, and reservations are a must. Just call 203.860.1737 to get your seat at the table. 6-8pm.
THRILLER: No Michael Jackson in this one, sorry. Thrill Me: The Leopold & Loeb Story is playing tonight in Norwich. Head to the Spirit of Broadway Theater to see the story of the brutal murder of a child in 1924 Chicago by two wealthy college students. Sounds nice, right? It's a story most people know, but do you know why it happened? The show runs through November 22. Tickets are $30. 8pm.
