Get Potted

Don't miss an opportunity to find unique gifts, (Mother's Day is almost on us, your potential to screw up is always ready and why not just because?) enjoy fine art and maybe even talk to a real, live artist, in their native environment.

Yes you can do all of this when you visit North Pointe Realty and see all of the magical works collected there for your enjoyment, once in a lifetime pleasure and educational enhancement.

And just in case you think all of this talent grows on trees, (Artists are a strange and curious lot) just look at this...

See there's hard work, thoughtful planning and sweat equity in all of that creativity.

So go, but own and you'll be the better for it.

Seeking 6-8 fearless actor/comics of any shape or creed. Auditions will consist of cold reads from the script. Affinity for sketch comedy, pop melodrama, multiple characters/ accents, and/or pseudo-Elizabethan claptrap a plus. Also, like, if you look like Jeff Bridges that wouldn’t be bad, man.  

LEBOWSKI: PRINCE OF NINEPINS is brought to you by the orchestrators of PULP SHAKESPEARE, DASH RIPROCK & THE TENTACLES OF DOOM, and MURDER PARTY. It is directed by John Beane and Daneal Doerr.

Damn Fkeas

Not enough useless stuff in your closets? Go to the Punk Rock Flea Market and get really cool stuff to replace all the crap you've collected/ And you'll hear some good bands too. And you get to feel self-righteous cause it's all for Head Start. You know you have some mad money you'be been holding out on The Thing on the Couch. Now you can spend it and feel no guilt.
