Relive your prom at Gaybingo!

Remember prom? Bad tux? Date who you thought made you look straight (it fooled no one)? Hair bands? Bad themes (Under the Sea! A Night to Remember!)? Yeah, it was awful when you look back on it. But face it: You had a good time. And even if you didn’t, this is your chance to make up for it, with Gaybingo reliving the 1980s (hey, some of us actually went to prom in the 1980s!) for its monthly games-and-fundraiser. Don’t forget your corsage!

Sue Ellen’s hosts 9th annual Women’s Music Festival

Girls — they run the world. Or so Beyonce claims. Well, maybe they do, especially when those girls include Anton Shaw, Heather Knox, Hunter Valentine, the ladies in Barefoot Hippies, Yoza and Deborah Vial, pictured, who will headline this 9th annual, daylong concert series. It’d be worth coming out for any one of these entertainers, but this line-up will keep you rockin’ for seven hours.

Sue Ellen’s

1 p.m.
