*Lindsay Lohan and her blonde tresses (that's Hollywood speak for "drugs," I think) are still weeks away from descending on Minneapolis to film A Prairie Home Companion, which should cause bar sales to skyrocket and C.J. to start foaming at the mouth. In the meantime, celebrity gawkers can check out Juliette & the Licks, featuring the Juliette Lewis, at the Triple Rock tonight.
*Speaking of people who have played mentally challenged sisters (remember Lewis in the Other Sister?), on the Hallmark Channel on Sunday night, Rosie O'Donnell plays a retarded sister with a heart of gold, plenty of bus tickets, and a closet overflowing with poorly folded shirts decorated with iron-on flower appliques. Watching Big Rosie act by simply bucking her teeth like Meredith Baxter Birney in Winnie should be funnier than the time the Queen of Nice (right) got a staph infection.
*The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy opens tonight, and critics are calling it delightful! uneven! and, mostly for geeks!
*Also around town: Atmosphere and P.O.S. at First Avenue; Elton John at Target Center; The Art of Zines and Graphic Novels at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts, and more.
