You Don't Say is all about describing art, without using the "off limits" words. Choose the right words and everyone will be able to guess which artwork you're describing. But remember, there are some words You Don't Say. Bring your favorite (kid-at-heart) adult to join in the fun. For info call 389-7200 or visit

Karaoke Every Wednesday @
Red Star!
Spill everything you've got on the mic for the enjoyment of your friends, fans, and fellow karaoke'ers. The point isn't to sound good, it is to sound pathetic. So come on down to the Red Star and sing like the rest of us sappy, drunken, lonely karaoke'ers. You'll fit right in!
