A Night Out At The Clubs Post-Covid Proves Some Things Never Change

A Night Out At The Clubs Post-Covid Proves Some Things Never Change

As an entertainment writer, part of my job entails periodically going out to hit the local scene and check out what, if anything, is new and exciting, especially now that things have been opened up again, and hopefully will remain so (damn Delta variant!) However, a night out at the bars, clubs and haciendas isn’t only recreational. Sometimes it can be educational as well. Here are some of the observations I made, after a recent night’s cogent examination of the local night life: Birds aren’t the only ones with mating moves: You can pretty much scan the crowd and see who’s... Read More

From Sad Clown Paintings To Self-Pity Night, These Quad-Cities Events Just Don't Make The Cut

Perhaps strangest of all, we saw one of the best performances of the year delivered by Adam Sandler. Maybe it’s not so strange, though! I’ll grant you that a cursory look through Sandler’s... Read More

One-man show “ChaRICKatures” at The Establishment Theater

One-man show "ChaRICKatures" at The Establishment Theater

Rick Davis has long been known as an improvisational master of many hats and voices, and in his latest one-man show, “ChaRICKatures,” he’ll get the chance to use as many of both as he can in a show that finds the veteran local comedian presenting a show that even Establishment owner Patrick Adamson says is “really performing without a net.” Davis will eschew the usual practice of improvisation with other partners and instead will partner up with the crowd, playing an interesting game of presenting a handful of celebrities he’ll be impersonating and then having the audience suggestions... Read More
