Two of the biggest things that happened this past week: North Korea tried to launch a missle and it bombed. Alan Cox launched his "Alan Cox Comedy Tour 2017" and he blew the House of Blues up with laughter and fun. It was Friday night. House of Blues was the venue and Alan Cox was our host, in case the name of the show wasn't hint enough. Alan was not too interested in being the focus of his own show. He gets that ish five days a week on his WMMS radio show. Instead he g
First things first...Hilarities is a great comedy venue. If you have never been, it's a very cool room. The sound is great and the staff is very friendly. Friday night it was packed for headliner Chris Franjola and featured comic Bill Squire. Our host was Juanda Mayfield. As you read this, keep in mind there are two more performances tonight.

Here's a little of what we saw... Bill Squire kicked it off. Some of Bill's subjects tonight included his guide to appropriate volume level
We stopped by the East End Bistro in Bird Town last night to see Bill Squire and Cody Cooper's "Stand and Deliver" series. The East End Bistro is a cool little spot. The food that we've had there has been good. The bartenders are great and really nice. The back room where the comedy does its comedy-ing is small (realtors: "cozy") and has a fireplace. Yep, jokes AND fire in the same place! On this evening, Mr. Cody Cooper was our host and, when needed, moral compass. If y
