With the guys away, the gals will play.
The so-called deer hunting widows weekend is upon us and per tradition, it’s time for the women to get together and get out on the town.
There are options a plenty.
One of the great traditions of the weekend are those stage shows with oiled up, muscly, scantily clad men who get right up in your faces with their big, huge … dance moves. If that’s your thing, pick your show.
Menominee Nation Arena in Oshkosh on Friday night will host “Girls Night Out: Unleashed Tour 2019.” Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8.
The Menominee Casino Resort will bring out the dudes on Saturday night with “The Magic Mike Experience,” which will start at 8 p.m.
For the women who want to make a road trip out of it, “Australia’s Thunder From Down Under” will take the stage at Ho Chunk Gaming in Wisconsin Dells with shows at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
Those planning to head out for a little laughter can catch Kyle Kinane at Skyline Comedy Club. Kinane’s 7:30 p.m. show on Saturday is sold out. He’s also performing at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Friday as well as 10 p.m. on Saturday.
