Have A Nice Day.
After watching the Cowboys get hosed in yesterday's playoff game against the Packers, there's a greater-than-zero chance you're in dire need of some good cheering up. You're probably also questioning whether or not you can believe the things you blatantly see with your own eyeballs.
Of course, that's all to be expected after yesterday's inexplicable turn of events.
Unless there's some sort of baffling upheaval, here's a few places where you can go drown your sorrows and/or start planning your next moves. — Cory Graves
College Football Playoff Championship at AT&T Stadium
Tonight, the NCAA will crown the first national champion under the new President Obama-sanctioned College Football Playoff system. Vying for the title is the 13-1 Ohio State Buckeyes, which is looking for its first national title since 2002, and the 13-1 Oregon Ducks, which is looking for its first ever. — CG
Mick Foley at Addison Improv
Mick Foley's tried on a number of personas throughout his 30-year wrestling career, from the hardcore Cactus Jack to the hippie Dude Love and the escaped mental patient Mankind. In the late '90s he added best-selling author to his resume. More recently he's decided to give the whole stand-up comedy game a shot. Ahead of his first handful of shows, Foley told TheMonitor.com what to expect from tonight's offering. Said Foley: “It's not a traditional stand-up comedy show; it's more like a one-man show, a spoken word show where I use stories from throughout my career to entertain people. It's just me in a rental car. Most of them will make the audience laugh, but the stories don't have to be funny — I'm not going on any kind of 'laugh per minute' ratio like other comics may have.”– CG
Tremors at Alamo Drafthouse
Tremors is the most important movie in film history. That's not true, but it's a hell of a lot of fun to watch. Join Kevin Bacon, Reba motherfucking McEntire, Fred Ward and Michael J. Fox's dad from Family Ties as they battle the ravenous Graboids once again on the big screen. If you're feeling dangerous, get ahold of the three straight-to-video sequels and make it a week-long event. — Chase Whale
Arts and Letters Live at Horchow Auditorium
Glenn Morshower played Agent Aaron Pierce from 24. Of course, he's probably best known for being the 223rd most famous Dallasite of all time. Tonight, he'll be reading works by David Haynes and Clay Reynolds as part of DMA's Arts and Letters Live series. Also reading at this one will be Sally Nystuen Vahle, Lydia Mackay and Chamblee Ferguson. — CG
