Erik Barnes

ErikBarnes

Wednesdays from 8-12am @ The Library Bar

Erik Barnes has been delighting patrons of the Library Bar for more than 15 years, including notables like Bobby Short, Alanis Morissette, Gregory Hines, John Mayer, the Electric Light Orchestra and back-up singers for Gladys Knight. Whether it’s romantic ballads “when love is in the air” or upbeat tunes for business types who need to decompress, Erik says “the room isn’t about me, it’s about the people who inhabit it.” Nevertheless, the Library Bar wouldn’t be the same without its main man. Erik holds degrees from Yale College (B.A.), Washington State University (M.A.), and he conducted doctoral studies at the University of North Texas. He has performed concerts in many of the major cities and played with four orchestras.

My Sister in This House Pay-what-You-can Preview

WingSpan_My_Sister_in_this_House_2__t520

8pm @ The Bath House Cultural Center

My Sister in This House, which often echoes Jean Genet’s The Maids, is based on an actual incident that took place in the French town of Le Mans, France in the early 1930s. It centers on the lives of Christine and Lea, two servant sisters attached to the Danzard household. The Danzards’, mother and daughter, are models of petit bourgeois idleness and severity. While suffocating under the weight of the Danzards’ authority and the rigid lines of class distinction, Christine and Lea have only each other to cling to. This pressure cooker atmosphere – part psychological study and part thriller – results in a haunting and stunning emotional explosion.

Many years ago Henderson wasn’t the best place to be seen, the safest place, or an ideal place to go out – but times have changed. Now there are so many bars, restaurants, cool shops and the city is doing a great job in making it a safer place. 

 

One spot that is always interesting is ‘The Slip Inn.’

 This is NOT by any means your usual uptown bar. If you have never even seen the Slip Inn, you aren’t the only one. It is a bit hidden and almost all the way down Henderson. It is located next to a convenience store, there are no windows, no surrounding bars. As you can see in the picture, it isn’t you’re usual looking bar. You will usually see a few cop cars outside and and open sign. Music is always good and the drinks are cheap! I even read a review where someone complained the drinks were too strong (why would you complain about a too strong drink?) There is a large diversity of people. You might get weird looks if you were super nice clothes as if you were going to uptown bars.  Even if its not your type of scene, I would just go once to say you’ve been there!

 

The next spot has been around just at a year. It’s Barcadia.

Do you love to drink? Love to play games? This is the perfect spot for you. They have games such as Asteroids, Defenders, Street Fighter, Pac Man, Star Wars and more!  Along with drinks and games they also serve good bar food! They have salads, desserts, sandwiches, appetizers, and even have a brunch from 11am-3pm.  If you pass by on any given the night, the patio is full of people enjoying the weather and the scene (they even have an oversized Jenga to play!)  It’s super easy to get quarters from the bar or even order quarters off your credit card tab.
