AND OF COURSE! OUR MONTHLY SHOWS: 
Check out July and August!!
Friday July 6th!!
Trek Into Summer and boldly get into this Sexy Sci Fi Fantasty Variety show with Hot Metal Hardware.

We are going to get nerdy, flirty and all kind of cosmically dirty. Don't let the new frontier of Smallman deter you, this is your voyage, to explore the strange new world of parking only past 17th or in the lot directly across the street.... to boldly go to this awesome show WHERE you can win prizes for the best start trek inspired costumes individual and group.

We are excited to announce interstellar star, Princess Jafar will be joining us for Trek Into Summer : Sexy Sci Fi Variety at Cruze Bar on July 6th!
Princess Jafar, media mogul and super villain was last traced to an underground recording studio and evil lair in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. With a moderately successful release of a few mind numbing pop singles and brainwashing radio and TV guest specials, Princess Jafar has been able to gather a sizeable number of lackeys and fanatics ready to defend their Princess by any means necessary. Proceed with extreme caution but act quickly. We have received intel that leads us to believe Princess Jafar is in the works to launch a new franchise of mind controlling campy teen films set to hit theaters this summer. We must stop Princess Jafar before it’s too late and the whole world is brain dead and mindlessly singing along with her saccharine singles, “DADDY!” End communication.

Steel City Sisters will be joining us as well as the stellar local artist and illustrator Miss Jess Poodle with their awesome wares. Definitely stop by and explore their art! Check out their Etsy at www.etsy.com/shop/MissJessPoodle

ENGAGE!
Doors open at 9pm, Show starts at 11pm.
