Local funky outfit Dan and the Americans play Blondies again tonight at 7 p.m. as a part of its ongoing odd-weeknight residency. The price is unknown to me but the show will likely pull a fun little crowd.
If music doesn't do it for you and you want a rare treat for the coming Winter Season, how about you head on down to Belotti Hall in Ferndale for some ice skating action? The last time I went ice skating was in the Harlem end of Central Park about 15 years ago and I got absolutely rinsed by some school kids who knew their shit on the blades and weren't afraid to school adults. Prior to that it was at least another 15 years back when we had a rink in my childhood neighborhood in San Francisco. I still remember the cold smell of the indoor ice, hot chocolate and Pac-Man in the concession area and watching my friend's evil little brother Trevor pull his dad's sweatpants down in the midst of a well-attended family circle skate. What I am saying here is, go make some real full-sensory memories with some loved ones today from 2 to 8 p.m. ($12, $8 kids).
