Learning and booze mixed together? Who would have thought? For $12 for admission and $3 drinks inside, you are in for a good night. The exhibits are amazing and the Planetarium IMAX was awesome. My one piece of advice would be not to drink too much before entering the Planetarium because it makes even my sober-self spin. I was surprised to find this "science academy" ranked as one of the top nightlife spots, but I can now understand why. Thursday nights from 6 till closing it is 21+. However, the concept of dressing up as if you were going out for a night on the town for this type of place blows my mind.

*****Review of Free at Noon only******** I work just a few blocks away from World Cafe, so when I actually have a relaxed Friday and can take a lunch break, I like to head over to the Free at Noon shows. For ZERO dollars you get to hear a band that is playing (for $$) later that night, grab a lunch beer (always makes the afternoon better) and walk back to the office before one feeling like you did something cool and worthwhile. I few times I've heard bands for the first time that I turned out to really like. But the best part is to get that weekend feeling started early. For the most popular bands you have to check the site early and RSVP by midweek, but if you can remember to do it, you'll feel "in." My only complaint is the $7 Dogfishhead. $7 for a local beer? Damn.

Charismatic Kat's Cafe I began my Friday as usual, things to do, people to see.... I was mostly excited about visiting Kat's Caf, since my schedule seems to never allow it. So I grabbed a friend and we headed over to Kat's Caf, we were attending a friend's birthday celebration and they were offering Afri-Salsa lessons, Yippee!!! You must try Afri-Salsa, it's so much fun, I'll tell you more about that later, back to Kat's Caf...What a warm, sophisticated and inviting spot, I met Kat a few years ago and she's truly an inspiration to me. The caf is very intimate, 2 cozy fireplaces, separate rooms, a great place for a first date! Start your weekend on Thursday, calling all vocalist, musicians, a jam session at Kat's, show's at 9pm. The Caf offers Martinis on Fridays for $5, delicious $3 appetizers, $8.99 Snow Crab Legs, and DJ Larmarrous spinnin' eclectic beats, get there between 5pm-9pm for the drink and food specials. Can you believe it, there's NO COVER! Just so you know, Kat's Caf is between 9th & 10th street, tucked away underneath the Helmet Salon, it's in the same spot formerly occupied by Jake's ice cream. Now get dressed, find a date, meet and greet, singles welcome too...and head on over to Kat's Caf, you'll be glad you did!
