PLAN DATE: THURS / MAY 2
With the goal of “plugging the holes in your education,” the Adult Sex Ed show at Caveat promises to be both comedic and uh, informational. Caveat is a comedy theater that focuses exclusively on educational shows, and this month’s edition of Adult Sex Ed is here to school you on sex and the movies. You’ll hear from talented storytellers like Natalie Wall and Jeena Bloom, watch related sketches, and get updates from the host on current sex ed events. It may not be the hottest thing you and your date do tonight, but it’ll definitely be the funniest.
Keep the fun going at the nearby Parkside Lounge, a bar and event space going on 10 years that recently settled into this new location. At first look this place seems like your classic dive bar, in a good way: tons of mounted beer styles, low lighting save for neon and twinkle lights, a pool table and oft-occupied foosball table. Once the back room is opened, however, this bar turns into a lively showroom, featuring live music every night, with anything from spoken word to indie plays thrown into the mix.
