  • Grit City Comedy Club
    Located inside Malarkey’s Pool and Brew, Grit City Comedy Club’s intimate, 150-seat venue stages close encounters between audiences and local and national comedians. The tables run right to the edge of the stage, allowing performers to riff back and forth with close viewers, and allowing close viewers to politely clean performers’ glasses after spit takes. While watching rib-tickling sets, guests can order from Malarkey’s full menu of food and draft beer, and wind down after the show with a game of pool.

  • Uptown Glassworks
    Within the century-old confines of Uptown Glassworks' warehouse, furnaces melt handfuls of kaleidoscopic frit into malleable shapes manipulated by a team of professional glass blowers. But these tradesmen don't just create works for the gallery; they also share their secrets with students in a variety of activities, from introductory courses on making beads and paperweights to advanced instruction that can be applied toward college credit or used to fix the pockmarked walls of glass houses. During the shop's Blow-Your-Own sessions, participants apply color to clear, molten glass that has recently emerged from a 2,000-degree furnace, then blow their mixture into 1 of 20 different shapes. The next day, patrons can pick up their cooled and packaged creations, comparing their handiwork to the gallery's collection of products, which are made by more than 90 local and regional glass artists.
