C(alendar) Unit!

Sept. 14TuesdayOK, gangsters. We know Salt Lake City is full of nothing but hard knocks. How about something to ease the pain?

Like the Utah State Fair! Again! Still! It might even make it tomorrow! We heard they were operating some of those rides in the middle of a lightening storm! SO cool-where else, people? Where else? Even more, it’s Treats For Troops Day, as in, bring two non-perishable food snacks to be shipped off to our troops overseas, get two-for-one admission. Or you could just bring the snacks here and we’ll fight the State Fair for free.

May I have some more Calendar, sir?

What in the Dickens? Hell yes, you may! “Oliver!” starts tonight! Capitol Theatre! (Damn, we’re good. Did you see that Dickens thing back there?) The run ends on Sept. 19, so go get your “Oliver!” fix before it’s too late. Go beg for soup or tickets (or cheaper service charges) by hustling 355-ARTS.

Every once in a while, things between people and calendars get heated and nasty. As such, we just wanted to apologize to you all for not doing our laundry and will report immediately to Stonewash, at 247 S. and 500 East to air our “dirty deeds.” On days like these (Tuesdays), Stonewash has FREE dryers all day until midnight when they close. Wednesdays are $1 wash specials. The pool tables and movies are free, the suds and drinks next door at Urban Lounge are not. We say: petition Stonewash to bring back their own bar, now defunct and lonely in that dark basement of theirs.

Live music? Well, Switchpin will bring its lovely melodies of anarchy-inducing death metal down to the beanie-baby crowd at the Phat Tire Saloon (4800 South State Street) tonight. And then there’s that Death Cab For Cutie show in four days you can line up for now before the entire Salt Lake County school district descends upon ASUU Presenter’s Office’s Redfest.

And speaking of FREE, we know how to get into movies for FREE in ways that won’t get you ARRESTED by the LAW. Start reading your Calendar more, children. We’ll hook you up.

Listen here: head down to Down To Earth (1950 W. 1100 East) today from 4-6 p.m., get your free screening pass, and get over to Century 16 on Wednesday at around 6:30 p.m. to check out a sneak preview of “National Lampoon’s Gold Diggers” for FREE. One more time. FREE. There. Don’t say we never gave you anything.

Finally, we’ll need some sushi to go with all that sake. Mikado (67 W. 100 South) has happy hour every Monday and Tuesday (today) from 4:30-7:30 p.m. And what’s so happy about it? Half-off sushi rolls. Keep on rockin’ in the 50 percent world, kids.
