Show and Tell

Show & Tell • Preschool For Adults • variety

Ah, the safety of childhood. For at least some of us the early years were not as fraught and demanding as the adult world. There was plenty of time to pretend, explore and grow. Contrariwise there's hardly enough time after the age of majority occurs to keep track of the adventures, much less make sure that they are wholesome, fun and embrace the sense of safety and freedom that some kids grow up on. Well, the news is that on Tuesday, Jan. 30, you can have a little bit of that childhood innocence back (but not all of it; nobody knows any 10-year-olds with tattoos and a proclivity for horrorcore and Jaegermeister, after all) by participating in Show and Tell: Preschool for Adults. It's be happening Downtown at one of our city's most comfortable and convenient nightspots, so feel free to dress down in your jammies, just like you do when headed for Walmart. JK. This awesome night of childishly fun yet seriously adult indulgences is free and begins at 8pm, Moonlight Lounge.
