"Everyone's a little bit racist," which is not a political message but the title of a song sung by puppets in the Tony-winning show Avenue Q. You can catch it at The Bushnell in Hartford this weekend.
Song and Dance - They say every musical has to start somewhere. Head to Goodspeed Opera House in East Haddam this weekend to find that next big hit. The theater's hosting the Fourth Annual Goodspeed Festival of New Artists. Tickets are only $15 per person per show - $10 for students. They also offer a weekend package including dinner.
Fine Wines - We always get pumped for this event. The Mohegan Sun WineFest is going on all weekend. They've got hundreds of wines, beers and liquors you can sample. There are a bunch of great local restaurants offering grub, not to mention celebrity chefs waging war with one another in the middle of it all.
