LAUGH IT OFF: Enjoy a “Stress-Free Tuesday” at U-31. Comedians, Brian Whitaker and Sarah Tiana, take the stage at 7 p.m. to help you laugh away your mid-week worries. Admission is $5 or arrive before 7:30 p.m. and get in for free.
BOOZE AND BOARD GAMES: The Whistler Stop Bar lets “Friends Chill” every week to listen to mellow tunes or get competitive at board games. From 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. let your inner-child play games like darts, pool and even Super Nintendo. Oh and, no cover!
