Today in Stranger Suggests

posted by on October 26 at 14:26 PM

Barack Obama at Benaroya Hall tonight is sold out. Lemony Snicket at Town Hall is sold out. What should you do? Put on a costume and dance, obviously:

Halloween Socialist Slap Dance Party
A communist costume contest (“everybody wins”)! Pictures with Fidel Castro! Songs by someone named Chi-Chi Guevara! Slap dancing! In case you’ve been living under a socialist rock: A slap dance involves people dancing around and slapping the shit out of each other.* It is obviously the best thing in the world. This is a benefit for Washington Ensemble Theatre, whose members will probably be in a celebrating mood after this year’s Genius Awards. (Havana, 1010 E Pike St, $10 with costume/$13 without, 8 pm, 21+.) BRENDAN KILEY

*This may or may not be what a “slap dance” is. Brendan’s been in the mood to slap people, as you know if you’ve been at any of the same house parties lately.
