Jew Wanna Go? | October 23 – October 29, 2015

Hey, there’s a ton going on this week. Like, a crazy amount. Not all the events are even listed here, so make sure you peek at our calendar, too. TOO MUCH CRAZY FUN STUFF!

Just Dolittle It! ($8)

All Children’s Theatre Presents Dr. Dolittle Jr.

Sat. Oct. 24-25; 7:30 p.m.; St. Paul JCC; 1375 St. Paul Avenue, St. Paul, MN

Come see this kiddie take on the famous crazy doc who can speak to animals. In this variation, the good doctor travels the world looking for the Great Pink Sea Snail, the oldest and wisest creature on earth. Um. Heh. I don’t know about you, but it sounds like someone was smoking some major kind of bud when they came up with this idea for a story.

Spoiler: The Butler Did It! ($15)

Masquerade Murder Mystery

Sat. Oct. 24; 9 p.m.; Beth Jacob Congregation; 1179 Victoria Curve; Saint Paul, MN

Think you got what it takes to solve a murder mystery, or are you just clueless? Well, regardless, you’ll definitely have a blast when Beth Jacob hosts this 20s/30s group masquerade ball filled with murder, intrigue, and costumes. But you better get this case solved ASAP! I’m getting a lot of heat from the brass upstairs!

Vegging Out ($12)

The Hadassah Chew

Sun. Oct. 25; 10:30 a.m.; Waterstone Place Apts. Party Room; 9700 Waterstone Place, Hopkins, MN

Get your veggie on as Debby Wolk shares her ideas on how to make your Jewish food healthier (read: vegetarian). Plus…and this is, by far, the most important bit: There will be samples!!

Soul II Soul ($80)

Journey of the Soul: An Exploration of Life, Death and What Lies Beyond

Tues. Oct. 27; 7:30 p.m.; St. Paul JCC; 1375 St. Paul Avenue, St. Paul, MN

Ever wonder what makes us, well, us? What is a soul? What happens after we die? Where do our souls go? All this and more will be explored during this spiritual class. However, the burning question still remains: Do all dogs go to heaven?!

“Joking” Around ($10)

Twin Cities Jewish Film Festival Presents: Are You Joking?

Thurs. Oct. 29; 6:30 p.m.; St. Paul JCC; 1375 St. Paul Avenue, St. Paul, MN

Hmmm…let’s take a look at the newest installment of the TCJ Film Festival. It’s a comedy called “Are You Joking?” Looking at the synopsis, the filmmakers clearly never met a cliché they didn’t like. We’ve got a NY 20-something (Check!) with a Jewish overbearing mother (Check!), a disapproving sister (Check!). No Joke. 

Back Pocket…Events to Come! (Or…Events to Come, but we’ll schmooze about them more later!)
