WHAT'S UP TODAY? Comedy at the casino, waxing ladies and pet Halloween prep

Posted By on Fri, Oct 17, 2014 at 10:37 AM


Friday is clearly a big day for all the events filling the Inlander's website and weekly newspaper, and in case you don't have time to sift through them all in planning your evening, or even the Staff Picks, we're here to help. 

Here are some potential goings-on around the area that caught my eye for Friday, Oct. 17: 

COMEDY | The Last Comic Standing Tour, featuring funny folks from the TV series' eighth season, drops by the Northern Quest Resort & Casino tonight. 

For a little local comedy, consider a trip to the Blue Door Theatre for Great Ideas: Spokane: Today!, a satirical take on the oh-so-earnest "Ted Talks" that have become oh-so-popular. Among the elements sure to generate some laughs are "PowerPoint presentations that defy the definition of bad." I used to work in a university business school, so I'm a big fan of laughable PowerPoints. Bring it on! 

COMMUNITY | You think you get scared at Halloween? Imagine your poor pet, dealing with an onslaught of strangers banging on the door and making noise in the streets. That's good reason to hit SCRAPS Pet Tune-up Clinic and getting your pet microchipped in case they scamper off after one too many meetings with a zombie. And after you've made sure your pet is ready for visitors, go ahead and get your dog or cat a costume, too! And then send us a photo to be entered in the Inlander's second annual Halloween Cats Photo Contest

SPORTS | The Chiefs have a home game at the Spokane Arena tonight, skating against the Kelowna Rockets. 

SheJumps, an organization dedicated to getting more women playing in the great outdoors, is hosting Wax Night at the Alpine Haus to teach ladies how to wax their own skis or snowboards. Pretty cool event, and a great excuse to point you toward our first issue of Snowlander for the 2014-15 season.
