The Three Best Ways To Have Fun in Tucson Today

Posted By on Mon, Feb 12, 2018 at 11:09 AM

Dawson Rutledge. If Harry Connick Jr. was funnier, if Beck was Canadian, if Wes Anderson was a pop-folkster born in the late 1990s, you'd have something approximating the blinky yet sincere ponderings of Dawson Rutledge. He's an old-souled and wonder-filled 20-year-old. His music trips senses. Like a silent movie. Like physical comedy. Like he sees thought bubbles and captions above murals. It's clean and universal and destined to get better. Rutledge can sometimes be precious, but what the hell, he's 20. More than that, he's unafraid to play the fool in order to make overlooked wallflowers grin. His songcraft is kind and playful, like a sweet Valentine to your lonely self. Monday, Feb. 12. The Flycatcher, 340 E. Sixth St. 9 p.m. Free. 21+.

The Spouse Whisperer.
In the mood for a healthy dose of relationship realism during this over-romanticized month? Comedian Mark Cordes, here to make light of the roller coaster that is the dating world, the wild ride that is relationships and marriage and even the tilt-a-whirl nausea of divorce, is your guy. And lucky for you, he's coming to the Gaslight. Spend your evening laughing and learning about all the do's and don'ts of relationships (at least according to Cordes). 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 12. The Gaslight Theatre, 7010 E. Broadway. $22.95 adults, $20.95 senior/student/military, $12.95 children.

Drink Beer, Make Your Valentine's Bouquet. You know what's coming up soon? Valentine's Day. You know how your significant other will feel if you forget to get them something? Pretty bummed out. No worries, if you go to Bouquet Making Class courtesy of The Soiree Girls, you're covered. You can learn how to make a bouquet for your S.O. or yourself. (Self-love is just as important). All while guzzling some beer. Now, how will your special someone ever doubt your love for them? Reserve your spot online. 6-8 p.m. $3.
