Stop! In The Name Of Love.
The immeasurably clever writer Tom Miller said it well: “The couple that boozes together, cruises together.”
It's not just a clever little rhyme, either! After studying the habits of couples for more than a decade, a researcher at the University of Buffalo has concluded that couples that get liquored up together tend to stay together longer than their teetotaling counterparts.
So there you have it. And lucky you, then, that should you be in need of a little “couples therapy” tonight, we've already scoped out a handful of places that might be able to help your relationship get back on the booze-filled track.
Yup, right there below. — Cory Graves
The All Stars Tour 2015 at The Bomb Factory
Throughout its history prog-y, post-hardcore outfit Dance Gavin Dance has gone through a revolving door of members, especially from its dual vocalist positions. To that end, 2013's Acceptance Speech LP, the band's fifth, marked the debut of yet another vocalist. But fans have come to accept this kind of thing from the band over the years. In fact, his year's Instant Gratification effort marked the first time the band employed the same lead vocalist for consecutive releases. Currently the band finds itself headlining the All Stars Tour, which also features Upon a Burning Body, A Skylit Drive, iwrestledabearonce, Within The Ruins, Oceano, Dayshell, Chasing Safety, Conquer Divide, A Sudden Revive, The Vanity Affair and A Life in Arms Reach. — CG
Big Night at Knife
The Highland Hotel's bar and restaurant Knife is hosting a Sunday Cinema Series and tonight they're screening Big Night which makes sense, since its a film about keeping a restaurant afloat after the owners go on a gambling spree the night before. It's $35 for a ticket, gratuity included, and you get to nibble on some gourmet bites from Chef John Tesar and drink some local brews from Four Corners Brewing Company. — Diamond Victoria
