Deadline for Calendar and Art in the Galleries submissions are noon on Thursday, a week before the issue that covers your event. Send an e-mail with event, date, time, location and cost to attend to cal@eugeneweekly.com

Buxom saloon girls, loud-mouthed cowboys and … werewolves? It’s all in an evening’s entertainment for the Poison Pen Players’ murder mystery dinner theater Saturday at the Red Lion. In So Long Saloon, the audience is part of the act, while talented performers act, improv and yuck it up. Sound like totally cheesy, tacky, low-brow humor? Hell yeah! P.P.P. has one mission: to make audiences laugh. So come on, Eugene! Have some fun — it’s not going to kill you.
