For $20, it’s hard to find a better bargain for your entertainment dollars than the Science on the Screen at The Capri. That price got us two movie tickets, a bottle of water, and our brains stuffed full of information about World War II and cryptography. It was a lot of fun. First of all, […]

Looking for something to do, but tired of researching to indulge your morbid curiosity about the two tired old folks duking it out in the Alabama Governor’s race? Convinced in some sort of deeply buried sliver of your soul that there might be more to life than consumption of a weekly slate of college football […]
