Around Town: 3 Weekend Picks

...............................................................For the weekend of January 15, 2010 Bald Eagle Watching Day: This is a great time to see eagles flying and getting their fill of fish on the open waters of the Wisconsin River in Sauk County, and this Saturday there are bus tours, kids activities, exhibits and more.  Bus tours from 8am-1pm, but the event goes until 4. At Sauk Prairie High School. Madfest Juggling Festival: 6pm-midnight Friday, and 9:30-5pm Saturday at MATC Truax. Plus, and Extravaganza Variety Show Saturday night at the Wisconsin Union Theatre, and a "Renegade" show Saturday night at 10:30 at the High Noon Saloon. It's free, except for the Extravaganza--tickets for that are $10 in advance, $13 at the door. Gotta love this disclaimer from the website. For those wishing to juggle knives, chain saws, flaming kittens, or anything that might damage the expansive floors of our venue, space will be provided on Lake Mendota (notice we did not say near Lake Mendota). Inside there will be juggling, workshops, catching, demos, dropping, competitions, pickups, vendors, excuses, parties, apologies, a raffle, and relief from wind chill low enough to shrivel silicone. Tony Rocker and the Comeback Special: Elvis Tribute Saturday night at the East Side Club. Dinner at 6:30, Show at 7:45. For those of you who didn't get enough Elvis last weekend on what would have been his 75th birthday. Freaky Band Name of the Week: Bathtub Mothers, at the Main Street Pour House in Stoughton, 8pm Saturday. Sorry, but I just don't get this name. Acoustic blues, country, rock from Madison.
