Heads up, music lovers, the big Pickin’ For Petit show is Sunday night, early, starting at 3 PM, tickets only $20 for a really big shoe, as Ed Sullivan used to say. See the “Bottom Line” update for other details. Today’s update includes the silent auction list. As far as I know, the items I have donated are the only ones where you get a naked mermaid.
