Hot Dish Happy Hour

Grumpy's Bar & Grill : 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. every Wed.

Throwing the words "hot dish" together with "happy hour" might sound odd. One usually entails booze, while the other reminds us of Grandma's comfort food.

Fassbinder: Tireless Provocateur

Trylon microcinema : Every Fri., Sat., Sun. until September 28

The films of German director Rainer Werner Fassbinder seem to come from a universe where auteur autonomy reigns as a sacrosanct policy.

Art Expanded, 1958–1978

Walker Art Center : Daily until March 8

It was a heady time of happenings: the dawn of performance art, a stripping way to conceptualism, the onset of video, an introduction to experimental sound.
