Editorial Review

The Fojol Brothers will be parked outside of Red Palace that evening, and anyone that buys something from their truck will receive a ticket good for a $2 PBR.

Loteria de Amor kicks off

With the advent of a new game show night, H Street's Palace of Wonders is continuing to do what it does best -- serve up fun and games with a side of burlesque. The game, inspired by the Mexican version of bingo, is also spotlighting area artists; visitors won't be playing with those familiar numbered discs, but rather crafty little creations by locals, including artists Tim Tate and Dana Ellyn and arts advocate Philippa Hughes of the Pinkline Project. And to spice things up, before the game and between rounds, there will be plenty of entertainment courtesy of Palace favorites, including the evening's co-host Shortstaxx and Malibu, Mistress of Fire. As for the "amor" in the game title, there's also a bit of a dating show aspect to the evening. Prizes include a date with another audience member, although if you're already paired off, never fear, there are prizes for non-singletons as well.
