It's still slow in January, but the events calendar's picking up steam. This weekend, checkout an art show inspired by Saturday morning cartoons, get coffee at Downtown's latest coffeehouse and go see some live music! As always, here's what I'd do this weekend if I could be everywhere all the time.


Grab a coffee at Downtown's latest coffeehouse, The Roosevelt

The still-to-be-finished Roosevelt Coffeehouse is hosting another pop-up Friday to give all y'all coffee snobs (myself included) another sneak peak.

What sounds better than a fun, colorful art show built around Saturday morning cartoons, complete with pajamas and cereal and mimosas? We both know the answer to that. Moving along now.

Turquoise Jeep at Ace of Cups

Hip-hop for the Adult Swim set? I guess that's me. For the unfamiliar, it's like a rap show of living internet memes. Gleefully goofy, funny and smart, I guarantee you won't go to a more hilarious rap show this year (unless you went to Riff-Raff earlier this year). Lemme smang it. Treat me like a pirate. Did I mention I like to dance? It's gold, pure brilliant gold.
