There is a lot going on this weekend here in the tri-state – If you plan to get your weekend started early, nearly every bar in town has karaoke and pool, and if they don’t, they have booze and food – you can’t miss.

This weekend’s highlights include Michael W. Smith at the Ford Center, Evansville Ballet’s production of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker at the Victory Theatre and the Magic Cares 2012 – Holiday Magic and Variety Show at the Centre.

As always, there are plenty of local bands and acoustic artists performing in your favorite bars all over the area.

Have fun and be safe!
