Best Bets for Jan. 13-15 | THE BAINBRIDGE BLAB

Friday, the weekend’s appetizer. The hors’d’ouvre at your 48-hour feast of freedom from work or school.

How to spend your Friday evening? How about spending it by fighting for air between fits of laughter. At 7:30 p.m. Friday catch the first night of the “Last Comedy Show Ever” featuring comedians David Crowe and Peter Greyy. The first show of the year at BPA could very well end up being the funniest. If you like what you see, catch the second show on Saturday which features Rodney Sherwood and Brett Hamil.

Tickets are $25 per person per night or $45 for a two-night combo ticket. Order yours at or via 206-842-8569.

Saturday, the main course. What you do with your Saturdays as an adult is almost as important as what you did with your summers as a kid. You want to be able to return to work on Monday with a story or two that will amaze and delight your colleagues.

What better way to blow your coworker’s stories outta the water than by saying you stared directly into the gaping maw of the infinite. On Saturday 7:30 p.m. visitors to the Edwin E. Ritchie Observatory are invited to enjoy a planetarium show where astronomer David Fong will discuss the new evidence suggesting the presence of another planet in our solar system. Afterward, weather permitting, turn your eyes upward and glass over the cosmos with telescopes provided by the Battle Point Astronomical Association. A $2 donation for nonmembers and a $5 donation for families is suggested.

If you think looking up at the infinite black expanse of our solar system might be a recipe for an existential panic attack, take a jaunt down to Rolling Bay Hall instead for some live music. At 7:30 p.m. the doors to one of the only all-ages venues in the area will open to guests who wish to watch The Staxx Brothers and Moorea Masa tear it up on stage.

Tickets can be purchased at the door for $15 or online for $12 at
