Over half our shows happening this year at The Rudyard Kipling, Galerie Hertz, Haymarket Whiskey Bar and Hillbilly Tea are free or pay what you can and here’s why: we want to strongly encourage you to spend your time and hard earned cash experiencing Irina’s Name Day Party by Conni’s Avant Garde Restaurant and Corn Mo , and then enjoy the rest of the week’s events on us. …just tip the bartenders and servers and buy your friends a drink.
