LEYKIS DE MAYO
When we think of Cinco de Mayo, we immediately think Former talk radio host Tom Leykis, don’t you? Well, el hombre is hosting his Cinco de Mayo booztacular starting at 5 pm tonight at J Lounge downtown. He promises “The Leykettes , traditional Mexican music and plenty of Cazadores Tequila.”

TALK*
The Hammer Museum welcomes the Museum of Jurassic Technology's founding director David Wilson tonight at 7 pm. The MJT, which opened in 1988, is an odd little museum that’s part science, part concept art and a whole lot of fun. It’s one of those places that we can’t describe. You just have to go and experience for yourself. Tonight, Wilson will be discussing his work at MJT and his independent film work in conjunction with Kabinet, an arts and science-based cultural institution located in St. Petersburg, Russia.The event is free, and tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Parking is available under the museum for $3 after 6 pm.
