SHE'S FUNNY AND SHE DANCES
The Bad Arm ­ Confessions of a Dodgy Irish Dancer is a one-woman show written and performed by Máire Clerkin at the Bang Studio in Hollywood. Clerkin is a London-Irish comedienne who is a recent arrival to the states, and tells tales about the disappointing daughter of an Irish dancing-school mistress. Amid the stories of dysfunctional family strife, accidental alcohol abuse and a life dedicated to work avoidance you'll see some fancy footwork. The show is at 8 tonight and will continue for the next five Sundays.

ROUND YOURSELF UP FOR SOME RIBS
Lucques is putting on their 8th Annual Rib Roundup so get ready to chow down like a cowboy on some fine feeding. They'll have a huge assortment of meaty goodness for you to grub on, like St. Louis-style pork ribs, braised beef back ribs, spicy lamb spare ribs, too to handle chicken wings, and of course the sides, like cole slaw, baked beans, greens, and cornbread. They're open from 1 to 10 p.m. and reservations are highly suggested, so get on the horn, cowboys and cowgirls. Yeeeeee haw!
