Monday the 8th, at Elsie’s in Northeast from 7pm-10pm.

Tis the season for the reason to get together. Also, turning 1 is a pretty big deal. So, you are officially invited to – get together.

Bear & The BarrelDon’t touch that dial! We are just getting started here at the “Bear & the Barrel” studio. Where else can you find a variety show with live music from guest bands and local films, all accompanied by a house orchestra? I’ll tell you where – in your very own backyard, then down the street, take your second left and 100 more paces, and you’re right where show business lives. Come join us, and get lost in the magical world that is prime television programming. It’ll be a hoot!The show started with an idea and grew into a wonderful event for the whole family. With a wonderful team and the support of the Old Arizona Theatre, The show has been able to grow and evolve every episode in front of a live audience.
