TACOMA PREFUNK TUESDAY, DEC. 26 2017: Kristen Marlo Birthday Beer and the Harlem Globetrotters
PREFUNK: Maybe Kristen Marlo moved you with her sweet lyrics and skillful crescendos. Maybe she called your 86-year-old grandmother “bro.” Maybe she served you the craft beer of your dreams while bonding over the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Maybe she belted out “rude” after you questioned the message on her T-shirt. Whatever your experience with our Peaks and Pints bartender may be you know you love her and can’t miss her birthday party at 6 p.m. tonight in Peaks and Pints’ East Wing room. Rainy Daze Brewing Co. brewed her a special German Chocolate Cake beer for the party. And, you’ll receive an extra Marlo high-five for wearing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles clothing. Happy birthday Kristen Marlo!
1:45 and 6:45 P.M. ODDBALL & THE PENGUINS: An eccentric chicken farmer, with the help of his granddaughter, trains his mischievous dog Oddball to protect a penguin sanctuary from fox attacks in an attempt to reunite his family and save their seaside town. Sure, the penguins are cute, but the big fluffy sheepdog steals the show in this delightful Aussie drama scorning at The Grand Cinema.
2 AND 7 P.M. HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS: As that classic whistled version of “Sweet Georgia Brown” filters through the overhead speakers, the star-spangled Harlem Globetrotters will be at ShoWare Center tonight to show off their incredibly well-coordinated, stylish b-ball tricks. The Globetrotters once had a record of about 13,000 to six against their rivals, the Washington Generals. However, they no longer play the Generals. Maybe the Generals finally had enough.
