Calendar of Events for week of 3-31-15

Tuesday 3/31

6:30 p.m.

When we touch something, often times we have an emotional response to it. Why is that? For answers to this question and more, make your way to the Pearl Brewery (307 Pearl Parkway) for a lecture by David Linden, a professor in the Department of Neuroscience at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, as he links our behavior to how we feel and touch others, physically and emotionally.

Wednesday 4/1

8 p.m.

What do we mean when we say “luck of the Irish?” And what does “red nose, short hose” mean? Chronicling a support group for under-endowed Irish men, one young member dares to challenge the beliefs that curse their lineage in “The Irish Curse,” playing at the Tobin Center (100 Auditorium Circle). First produced at Trinity University in 2011, this humorous comedy also deals with other issues like masculinity and body image, all in the context of guys with a tiny problem.
