Maybe I shouldn't say this, afflicted as I am with terminal White Maleness, but this "womxn" term I keep seeing offends my every editorial impulse. I literally flinch a little when I see it. Whatever happened to the also objectionable, but at least somewhat linguistically defensible "womyn"? I assume it has to do with some vague chromosomal associations with the letter "y," which really doesn't deserve to be so pigeonholed?
At any rate please tell me it only pertains to this march, and will be mothballed in future uses of the English language.

I don't know from Debbie Reynolds's eventual obituary writer, but I do know this post from Charles captures something essential and insightful.

@2, but the Stranger does all kinds of other reasonably comprehensive listings...they have a happy hour app, listings for all kinds of entertainment, art openings, etc. And this is just the sort of quirky topic they do well.
Plus, this list includes a place that doesn't actually have a fireplace as well as a location the author didn't even bother visiting. Does that really qualify as "curated"?
And furthermore, fuck Yelp.

I don't mind you ripping on this, but you might consider offering up another holiday themed option at the end. Instead you direct us to another play that apparently features "a narrative about a family trying to make it through tough times (medical issues, addiction)." Sounds deep and all, but maybe not suitable as a fun holiday outing, you know? Honestly, recommending that after pissing all over this production makes you sound rather joyless, and thus untrustworthy.
