This is the weekend to explore the nightclub circuit, with live music scheduled for just about every venue in the area. It's the Governor's Fishing Opener and the nightspots will be hopping with visitors, and, who knows, the governor might show up.
At least that's what the operators of Primetime Food & Spirits in Breezy Point are hoping. They've commissioned popular area bands The Retractions and The Stool Pigeons for Friday and Saturday night engagements and developed a "gimmick" to promote Gov. Jesse Ventura's weekend visit to the area.
The annual Governor's Fishing Opener unfolds on Pelican, Lake and Primetime, just up the street from Breezy Point Resort's front gate, is offering an "off the record bash" in keeping with the governor's quarantine of the "jackal press."
Press passes have been issued but are not required for admission, which is free.
Take in a play
For the theater crowd, the primary choice this weekend is the Central Lakes College student-produced, student-directed "A Midsummer Night's Dream," opening for a three-night run at 7:30 p.m. today in the Bob Dryden Theatre.
The play will feature most of the CLC Theatre Department's scholarship recipients, including student director Katrina Hawley, assistant director and set designer Dawn Marks, and Anna Midthun, Heather Vaughan and Taylor Hays on stage. Admission is $5.
