Tucson Roadrunners vs. Colorado Eagles. Another week, another chance to cheer on our hometown hockey team!

Tucson Arena, 260 S. Church Ave. $12 to $61+. Information.
Type in Tuesday! Type in Tuesdays are truly, totally Tucsontastic. If you have friends coming to town and you’re not sure how to describe the Old Pueblo’s artsy, old-school, charmingly Western vibe, just tell them that on the first Tuesday of every month, there’s a local brewhouse you can go to where you can type on an old-fashioned typewriter. Friends of the brewhouse bring ’em in by the dozen, so you can write a poem, or a love letter, or make a poster for your band’s next gig. Type your heart out (and take a nice break from the internet) with a beer in hand. If you’ve got a story in your heart, get a beer in your hand and come on out. 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3. Public Brewhouse, 209 N. Hoff Ave. Free. Information.
Jesus Christ Superstar. So, you know the story of Jesus Christ. But if you don’t know this show, then you probably don’t know the story of Jesus Christ through Judas Iscariot’s eyes, who I think we can all agree does not have a great reputation as far as that whole story goes. This cult classic, with a worldwide fanbase and a number of absolute bangers (Gethsemane, anyone?), is coming to town through Broadway in Tucson, so you know they’re going to put on a good show. Lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber. Tuesday, Dec. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 8 with shows at various times. Centennial Hall, 1020 E. University Blvd. $25 to $125+, with discounts for seniors, military and students. Information.

And for dessert, warm Venetian-style fritters! 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3. 2890 E. Skyline Drive. $125. Information.
