This Weekend in Downtown Fargo (Apr 11-14)

This weekend in Downtown Fargo starts early with several must-see events!

THURSDAY (April 11)

The Plains Art Museum hosts this month’s guided tour of the Warhol exhibit today at 5:30 p.m.  Stop by the museum for the approximately 1.5 hour, no-ticket-required tour.  If you haven’t seen the Warhol exhibit, this is a prime way to do so!

“God of Carnage” Opens Thursday at Theatre B

At 7:30 p.m., it’s Opening Night at Theatre B.  “God of Carnage” by Yasmina Reza will run weekends through May 11.  According to Theatre B, “Carnage” is a great, tension-filled story of family:

A playground altercation between eleven-year-old boys brings together two sets of parents for a meeting to resolve the matter.  At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but as the meeting progresses, and the rum flows, tensions emerge and the gloves come off, leaving the couples with more than just their liberal principles in tatters.

Across the river, from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., it’s College Night at the Rourke — and a night of “frees”!  Free admission to the current exhibits, free pizza, free beer.  If you have your Student ID, and you’re looking for an awesome, culture-filled Thursday night (with free stuff!) then you do not want to miss this.  The Rourke Museum is located at 521 Main Ave. in Moorhead.  For more details: http://downtownfargo.com/events/article/college-night-at-the-rourke
