Posted By on Fri, Dec 26, 2014 at 9:05 AM

Did you manage to make it through Christmas without any fisticuffs or shooting your eye out? Great! Then you'll be wanting to get out of the house, so take a look at our event listings and Staff Picks for what's happening in Spokane and beyond. 

No time? No problem. Here are some highlights for Friday, Dec. 26: 

COMEDY | The Blue Door Theatre is light on its comedic feet when it comes to themes for its comedy and improv nights, and Return of the Natives shows that dexterity off again as Return of the Natives welcomes a slew of funny people who have left Spokane back to town for one night of laughs. Talk about a great antidote to the post-Xmas blues. 

THEATER | The Modern Theater takes over The Bing Friday and Saturday for productions of the pioneering rock musical RENT. Read our story about the show, and then get thee downtown for the Tony-winning show. 

WORDS | Spokane graphic artist Manny Trembley will be at Merlyn's Friday from 5-7 pm signing copies of his new book, Under Where?, and doing free sketches for visitors.
