Fat Tuesday Musical February 24
Our selection will be the winner of the Razzie Award for Worst Picture and Worst Screenplay of 1980, “Can’t Stop the Music” starring the Village People, Valerie Perrine, Bruce Jenner, and Steve Guttenberg. The film is full of cameo performances and the lack of acting talent of the Village People and Bruce Jenner. This movie didn’t kill disco, but it didn’t do it any good. So, start planning to dress up as a GI, construction worker, cowboy, Indian, leatherman, or cop, or just throw on your best bulletproof polyester outfit and plan to join us singing and dancing to “YMCA” and other disco hits.

Central Arkansas Independent Restaurant Operators serve tasting portions of their famous food.
I've attended two years (not consecutively) and rank the event as fabulous.
Tickets are $18 in advance, $20 at the door.
Wear pants with an elastic waist. Some people bring cafeteria trays to hold the tasting portions. It's that good.
Thanks to heifer3 for alerting me of this year's event.
