Hot Stuff In Feb:
Film festival, indoor drone racing, stuff about bears, lap dances for loggers by honky-tonk women

February 08, 2018

This report was first published Feb. 7 in the Breaking News column
By Rex D. Cain

(REGIONAL) – The powers that be in Snohomish county – dark, shadowy forces full of fire and fury – have been begging the mighty Chronicle to do a rundown of all the arts gigs in the county for the month of February.

Since we’re tired of hearing grown men and women beg (it’s really awful to listen to) here then forthwit and therefore is all the hot action happening this month in the fine (but awfully wet and gray) county they call Snohomish.

Remember kids, you read it here first.
