By Kerry Alsheimer

The Brazen-Faced Varlets: Buffalo’s Progressive Feminist Theater Company. What does that even mean? The Varlets came together back in 2006, as the brainchild of Lara Haberberger, Heather Fansgrud and Kelly Beuth with some pretty big goals in mind. The trio wanted to see more complex roles in theater for women, to produce work that focused on political issues affecting women, and to raise awareness and funds for charities and organizations that provide needed services for women.  Read moreRead more

The Dude Hates Cancer Combines Bowling and Brewing…on Shabbos

This post currently has no comments.

By Tim Maxwell, Founder, National Chair & Buffalo Co-Chair, The Dude Hates Cancer

The Dude, Jeff Bridges’ lead character in the Coen Brothers film The Big Lebowski, seems like a pretty laid back guy. However, he does have some pet peeves, including: nihilists, The Eagles, and (I presume) cancer.
