Friday, June 6's Lowdown

Comparatively, we’re calling this a pretty low-key Friday for Humboldt. Hmm. Maybe you missed the opening weekend of the Humboldt Crabs slaughtering all comers. If that is the case, you’re required to get out to a game this weekend to watch them club Seals. Tonight perchance. 

Down at the Ferndale Repertory Theatre, they’re opening The Dixie Swim Club, a story of five college friends who reconnect and validate the hell out of each other. Very touching. Show runs for the next three weeks.

Oh! Or. For some reason the vibrant Ocean Night crowd scheduled this month’s film screening for a Friday. Do you crave environmentally savvy chit chat over beer? Do you like raffles? Do you want to see Disney’s eye-popping Oceans documentary on the big screen (trailer below)? These are reasons you would go to that.

It's Hemp History Week? Isn't it always here in Humboldt? What that? You don't smoke hemp? Well if that's true why is it illegal? Because not every law needs a good reason behind it you say? Oh. Learn even more tonight at Bringing it Home Humboldt at the Bayside Grange tonight at 6p.
