Somber Milestone

Breathtaking sunset over Thalia this evening. While sources vary on exact numbers (CDC vs USA Facts vs NPR….), the United States is at about 500,000 deaths due to COVID-19. With each new day we are that much closer to getting back to “normal,” but we will still remember—and honor—those who perished.

Live Comedy Returns

Now more than ever, we can all use some laughter. Well the Funny Bone Comedy Club and Restaurant in Virginia Beach is open and has shows booked! Must be 21 and over. As a health safety measure, they are only selling entire tables instead of individual tickets with two options: two-person table and a four-person table. Seating is done by the date and time of the ticket purchase/reservation, so you will be assigned tables by purchase date. The earlier you purchase, the closer you are to the stage. And if you’re feeling adventurous to give stand up a try for yourself, they offer comedy school online as well as in person. Check website for details.
