Find Out What John Cryer Did Before Two and a Half Men, What Nivek Ogre Did After Skinny Puppy and What Chef Blaine Staniford Does When He’s Tasked With Ramen.
Bored at work? You could always film yourself with your little video phone every time you have to pass gas on the clock. But, as this chap recently found out, that kind of behavior is grounds for termination in some bosses’ books.
Might we suggest the markedly more discreet action of scoping out something to do once you clock out this evening. The higher-ups will never know. Plus, it’ll give you something to look forward to the rest of the day.
Champagne Cinema: Pretty in Pink at Alamo Drafthouse (Cedars)
For those that can’t seem to keep John Hughes’ two Molly Ringwald-starring flicks straight, this is the one where she rejects the loveable, comic relief-providing nerd in favor of a makeout sesh with a hunky, but slightly hateable douche nugget. Not specific enough? Um, well this is the one that plays OMD’s “If You Leave” at the end, whereas Sixteen Candles ended with the Thompson Twins’ “If You Were Here.” There’ll be some bubbly on hand, and a few lucky folks at the screening will win some Kendra Scott jewelry.
