Hockey, local literary reading, and audience participation comedy

It's finally Friday! Fret not if you haven't figured out how to celebrate yet, as usual we've got plenty of events and Staff Picks to help you out with the decision. 

Here's just the tip of the iceberg for all of your Friday, Jan. 31 options: 

SPORTS AND OUTDOORS | In the mood to cheer on a local team? The Spokane Chiefs are playing the Victoria Royals at home tonight, and its bound to be a good time. If you've never made it to a game before, cheap hot dogs, constant audience engagement and the chance to see a scrappy hockey fight make it a worthwhile experience for everyone. 

WORDS | If you're looking to spend your night in a calmer environment, head to Auntie's Bookstore for a crazy cool group reading by Stringtown Press. Stringtown Press is a local publisher/press/website of literary work, and quite a few of its contributors will be in attendance to share their work and a great time with the audience. 

COMEDY | Need a to let out a good belly laugh after a long week? Don't miss the last Choose to Lose improv show at The Blue Door Theatre tonight. The show relies on audience suggestions to continue the plot line, making it not only hilarious but engagingly interactive. The best part? Tickets are only $7.
