The Pajama Men

Culture Shock

By Amy Dalness

Pajama Party

Unlike those highly exclusive, snotty, popular-kids-only PJ parties in middle school, everyone is invited to The Pajama Men's night of flannel-clad hilariousness. You do need to have $15 for a ticket (or $12 for students and seniors), your own ride to the Stove (114 Morningside NE) by 9 p.m. this Friday, Nov. 16, and you can't be a loser (just kidding ... but not really). Shenoah Allen and Mark Chavez will be there—in full pajama regalia—to entertain you with their quick wit and schizophrenic character changes along with a special, unnamed musical friend. This is a one-night-only thing, so be there or risk being laughed at Monday morning by your possibly more popular coworkers. To make reservations, call 301-4892.
