Friday, July 5, 2013's Lowdown

Well, I'm sunburnt and sore from being pummeled by river rockage, but hopefully you had a restful time at America's birthday party yesterday. 'Cuz here comes the weekend, Humboldt. Ugh!

So let's check the weather report. Ah! If you'd like your nights this weekend to rival your days in terms of hotness then set coordinates for Blue Lake. The Mad River Festival rolls on with its annual adults-only cabaret Red Light in Blue Lake which heats up Dell'Arte's Carlo Theater with late night shows on both Friday and Saturday night.

Why should you take the trip over 299? The "classy and sassy, crude and lewd" shindig will feature burlesque by local tassel twirlers Va-Va Voom Burlesque Vixens, live music and a full bar.

Can you take the heat? Less steamy events in Friday's Lowdown below.
