      Have we ever got an enticing week of events for you. 

      Enjoy the sunshine on the Monumental Scandals Tour, listen in on some of the city’s up-and-coming poets, grab a bouquet for mother’s day at the VBGA plant sale, catch a comedic depiction of climate change himself, and see the top notch talent of the Rio Theatre’s Burlesque and Variety Show.

      Call Me CC

      From the mind of Kat Single-Dain, CALL ME CC is your chance to meet Climate Change itself, live and in person. CC is equal parts charming and disgusting, graceful and garish, irresistibly fun and coldly egotistical.
