The Weekend Go Go: Free Pie, Extended Lingerie, and Sunday Night Funnies

This event will be the cat’s meow. (“Tigger and Apple Pie” Jo Ann Callis c.1980; Courtesy of LACMA)

Important news flash: summer did not end at Labor Day.

First, you’re welcome.

Second, since the mercury is still kickin’ it in the upper 80’s, it’s a good thing you have another two weeks to officially wear white shorts not to mention at least one outside weekend event to wear them to.

Yes, Go Go’ers, the livin’ is still easy.

Let Them Eat Pie

Proof that summer isn’t over: pie and lots of it.

KCRW’s 2012 4th Annual Good Food Pie Contest keeps your haze of summer happiness going strong at LACMA  on Saturday, September 8th from 2:00-4:00 p.m.  Come at 11:30 a.m. to purchase Patina picnic food — you can dine and gaze at a certain rock — but the real event is the Pie Contest.

With celebrity food judges on hand to taste and choose, 200+ pro and non-pro pie makers will vie for the gold bragging rights with Fruit, Nut, Cream/Chiffon/Mousse, and Savory Pies PLUS Metropolis II Inspired pies.  Haven’t seen the mind-boggling Chris Burden’s Metropolis II  installation at LACMA?  Wear an apron and you get free admission to the museum.

Yes, you can wear it over your white shorts.

But Go Go’ers, here’s the BEST part!  Grab a ticket at the KCRW Hospitality Table just north of the Ahmanson Building (first come, first served) and you’ll get free pie.

Which really may be the best thing in life….

KCRW 4th ANNUAL GOOD FOOD PIE CONTEST —  Sat, Sept 8th, 2-4pm; FreeLACMA, 5905 Wilshire Blvd., LA 90036

Truth in advertising…..

Dirty Pretty Things

Just to set the record straight, Ms. Go Go is not referring to Ms. Vanessa Cate and her lingerie-clad ladies as “things”.

It’s a movie reference, Go Go’ers.  Look it up.

Count on those adjectives, though, when it comes to Down & Dirty: Cate’s cabaret spectacular, about a chorus of dancers and their frantic efforts — which may or may not involve clothes coming off — to keep their show from collapsing when their MC suddenly disappears.

You can SO relate…

The late-night, Saturdays-only cabaret — part of the 20th anniversary celebration of  Zombie Joe’s Underground Theatre Group — has been playing to packed houses but — lucky you — has been extended through September 9th by popular demand.

There’s nothing like skimpy lingerie when it comes to making friends.

DOWN & DIRTY – Saturdays through Sept 29th @ 11pm; $15 — Zombie Joe’s Underground Theatre Group, 4850 Lankershim Blvd. North Hollywood, 91601

Reservations: 818-202-4120

Comedy with soul

Dinner Comedy

Go Go’ers, there’s cabaret, there’s comedy and then there’s UnCabaret: Beth Lapides’s legendary, weekly Sunday night comedy line-up, which recently relocated to the swanky Bar Fedora at the First & Hope supper club.

Swanky + comedy = good.

This week, Jackie Kashian, a Ms. Go Go fave, will take the stage along with a handful of other hilarious types including Danny Shorago of the Fuxedos.

Fuxedos…bet you can’t say it just once.

Expect music, expect laughter, and also, expect dinner if you opt for the “Platinum Package” (Hey, Big Spender), which includes a drink, preferred seating, and a three-course “American Bistro” meal.

Go Go’ers, you’ll want to keep your strength up.
