TUESDAY. You don’t have to be Wilford Brimley to be concerned about your cardiovasculars. Get yourself checked out at the Cardiovascular Risk Awareness Screenings.

Dr. Kalus will be there to guide you back to the fountain of youth. If successful, take your foxy self to see Lily Slay and Friends on the Pour House deck. If you’re still feeling stuck in the ’60s, just step inside the Pour House for Grateful Dead covers by Reckoning.
