To-Do Thursday: 2/5/09

It’s Thursday, which means it’s almost Friday, which means you only have to deal with the hangover you’re going to earn tonight for one day before you have a whole weekend to recover from it. Hair of the dog, man.

Tonight, there’s all kinds of awesome to get your weekend started a little early, which in our opinion is almost always a good idea (almost).

Tonight at George’s, get your Dickson Street shuffle on with “the only Front Porch, Whiskey Swillin, Foot Stomping, Gypsy, Punk, Country, Grumble, Boogie band in the land,” Dirtfoot, with Fayetteville’s Earth Society opening the show.

The stars of the 1994 hit movie “Blue Chips,” the Nick Nolte’s (yes, both of them) will be at Froggy’s possibly reenacting scenes from “Blue Chips,” but more likely being “a 2 man dueling piano bar act, minus the piano, and the dueling.”

Opal Fly will make her regular Thursday appearance at the Smoke and Barrel, which by all accounts is anything but regular. Jeff Kearney will be sitting in with Opal this time.

Wanna dance? Teatro Scarpino has its usual Thursday night “Salsa, Swing etc. Lesson” at 8:30 for $10. An hour later, the dancing begins (9:30pm) and for the ladies, there’s no cover until 10pm.

Pesto Cafe has Kevin Bennoch, and On the Rocks has Nathan Scott Hancock.

As always, if we missed anything, feel free to let us know in the comments. Party.
