From 6 to 8 p.m., the Hudson Pride Foundation is sponsoring Rainbow Skate Night at the Skate Factory, 1131 Route 9H in Ghent. It's an LGBT friendly, teen friendly event for skaters under 21 only--although there will be adult chaperones. Admission is free for the first 30 skaters; after that, it's $5. It's a private party and only those on the list will be admitted. To get on the list, send an email to
For those over 21, there's something else: Hedda Lettuce, the Queen of Green, performing at Stageworks. Hedda, who's been described as "delightfully offensive" and acclaimed for her "poised characters, startling satire, and original music," will be appearing with some surprise guests. The performance begins at 8:00 p.m., but show up at 7:30 for snacks and a free glass of wine, courtesy of (p.m.) Wine Bar. In the dead of winter, there's nothing more heartening than a good laugh and a good glass of wine. To order tickets, visit the Stageworks website or call 822-9667.
