The weekend came early for parents who couldn’t park their public school kids somewhere, but for the rest of us the bell just rang and we’re free to go. Here’s where the Collective is spending their precious 55 hours.
Friday the 11th
- If you’re superstitious, don’t forget to make a wish at 11:11pm tonight. You’ll be dead and gone the next time 11:11 11.11.11 comes around. Unless you wish for eternal life.
- Feeling a little uncool these days? Up your hip factor by going to see the KOCU bill at MoJo’s. CAVE, Jerusalem & the Starbaskets, Running, and Hott Lunch are playing. Doors open at 8:30. It’s a cheap night at $6 a ticket (plus $2 if you’re a minor.)
- Weekend opens at Ragtag. Wesley Morris of the Boston Globe says it’s “one of the truest, most beautiful movies ever made about two strangers.” Check out the trailer here.
Saturday the 12th
- Want to get a jump start on your holiday shopping and support local bsuinesses? Take yourself down to the Expo center for the King’s Daughter’s Holiday Festival.
- Did our post on Occupy CoMo make you want to get in on the action? Then head to city hall at 12pm and join in the potluck/protest/celebration.
- If you’re not sported out from the last Mizzou home game, the Derby Dames have some sweet roller action happening at the Boone County Fairgrounds. The Convixens and Violent Phlegmmes will face off at seven. Tickets will be $15 at the door, unless you bring 5 donate-able cans of food for $5 off the price of admission.
Sunday the 13th
- Let’s face it you’re never going to finish that scarf in time to give it to your aunt for Christmas. Let the professionals of the Wavers and Spinners Guild take over your warmth needs. They are having a Holiday Exhibition and Sale from 11am-3pm at the Boone County Historical Society Museum at 801 Ponderosa drive.
- Stop getting your comedy and mystery from network television and catch it on the live stag instead. Missouri’s own playright Lanford Wilson murder mystery comedy Book of Days is showing at the Columbia Entertainment Company
