Friday Night Scenester Guide: Secret Stand-Up Comedy and Batmen / Important Local Legislation of the Week: Potbellied Pigs

It's time to quit whining about this week's tiny January snowfall and hit the town, so we'll be starting our evening with a top-secret stand-up comedy show...which you probably already know about if you follow @BARRR on Twitter. But if you still need an invite, we've been authorized to give out 10 of them (it gives Chip a boner to think he knows about shit that other people do not). So send a DM to @larryvillelife if you need the scoop. And we hear Wayne Propst is going to be in the house. Will he be performing any stand-up (or perhaps a ventriloquist act using those freaky babydoll heads?). There's only one way to know for sure.

Afterward, you should probably either head home to watch the Battlestar Galactica episode of Portlandia or to the Jackpot to see Batmen and Mouthbreathers, a show so hip it's not listed on the Jackpot's calendar.


And don't forget that the City Fathers are meeting next week to decide whether pot-bellied pigs should be allowed as pets. Personally, we don't find them as adorable as hedgehogs. Look at this 70 pound beast named Sparky from the LJ-World story on the subject:

Do you want that thing rooting around in the apartment above you?

If you're a local progressive (or resident of the Eastside) the answer is almost certainly yes.
