Your Wednesday To Do List

Last night’s Reds opener against the Cubs was postponed due to that nasty storm, so Bronson Arroyo and Chicago's Jeff Samardzija will face off tonight at 7:10 p.m. A makeup game for last night has not been announced yet.

If you’re downtown for the game or just hanging out, stop by the Moerlein Lager House at The Banks for their first seasonal Keg tapping. Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld will tap the Christian Moerlein Dubél Double IPA, available only at the Lager House, at 6 p.m.

Even if you’re far from a modern dance buff, you’re probably familiar with contemporary dance company Pilobolus. Besides touring across more than 64 countries, Pilobus performed a tribute to the nominated movies at the 2007 Oscars, collaborated with OK GO for the group’s “All Is Not Lost” music video and were featured on Late Night with Conan O’Brien in 2008.

Pretty cool, right? Pilobolus is in town tonight and Thursday, performing at the Aronoff Center as part of Contemporary Dance Theater’s Guest Artist Series. Go here for tickets.

Joseph-Beth hosts staff favorite author Veronica Roth and their Rookwood location tonight. The New York Times bestselling author will discuss and sign the second book in her popular Divergent series tonight from 7-8:30 p.m. Insurgent is “another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature.”

I Just Can't Get Enough

Jac's roundup of pop culture news and Internet findings

One of the greatest television shows of all time came to an end Sunday with the series finale of Breaking Bad. Without going into spoilery detail about this last episode, the finale was truly satisfying for fans of the show. Often times, even great shows can have disappointing endings that leave storylines ambiguous and questions unanswered. Breaking Bad wrapped up fully, touching on nearly every main character and plot point. Alas, it is still emotional to say goodbye to a beloved series. Thankfully, we’ll get a little more Bad with the latest spin-off, Huell’s Rules!

Just kidding. But the Better Call Saul spinoff is actually a go (although it is a comedy and will likely be a prequel, having nothing to do with Breaking Bad aside from the Saul character). Bad creator Vince Gilligan also has his next project lined up —a CBS cop drama titled Battle Creek, which Gilligan actually wrote for the network more than a decade ago. Cop drama? CBS?! OK…
