TACOMA PREFUNK WEDNESDAY, NOV. 15 2017: Lagunitas Lodge Meeting and David Feherty
PREFUNK: We all love Scooby Doo for its thinly veiled weed references and campy, nonsensical villains. There’s something to be said for a world in which the monster is always just a maniacal old dude in a mask. Seriously, the smoke from the Mystery Machine as it pulls away? That’s not coming from the tailpipe, friend. Stoners get a bad rap. They are often thought of as closed-eyed, open-mouthed, pizza roll eating, Scooby Doo watching couch potatoes. Not stoner Tony Magee. Sure Magee admits he wakes and bakes, but then the founder and CEO of Lagunitas Brewing Company oversees an operation putting out 640,000 barrels of beer a year, a staff that half are also baked and one delicious craft beer after another. We’re not sure if Magee enjoys Scooby Doo, but Peaks and Pints does. We’re combing the two hosting a Lagunitas Brewing Lodge Meeting with Scooby Doo on the big screen beginning at 6 p.m. tonight. The gang will all be here: Eroica Flemish Farmhouse Ale, Fred Jones, Brown Shugga, Daphne Blake, Aunt Sally Dry-Hopped Sweet Tart Sour Mash Ale, Velma Dinkley, Nightime Black IPA, Shaggy Rogers, Laguntas IPA, Scooby-Doo, Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Hoppy Pale Wheat Ale and Scrappy-Doo. Scooby Dooby Doo, where are you? At Peaks and Pints tonight, that’s where.
1:45 AND 6:45 P.M. THE BIRDS: Daphne du Maurier’s 1952 short story The Birds probably wouldn’t be remembered if not for the 1963 Alfred Hitchcock film version. In case you don’t know, The Birds is about, well, birds joining together and attacking humans. The du Maurier original is set on a farm in Cornwall, England, and it is about a man protecting his family from the gathering menace. In the Hitchcock version, it’s Bodega Bay, Calif., that’s besieged when a socialite — poor Tippi Hedren — starts romancing the local Most Eligible Bachelor. Today, at The Grand Cinema, it’s all about the Hitchcock version. Expect hosted trivia before the 6:45 p.m. screening. Release the birds!
7:30 P.M. DAVID FEHERTY: One of professional golf’s biggest personalities, David Feherty brings his uncensored and unhinged one-man show to the stage of Broadway Center’s Pantages Theater. In Live Off Tour! Wandering Around On His Own, the pro golfer turned broadcaster and best-selling author will take you on a wild ride that mixes biography, comedy and commentary.
