A daily rundown of live entertainment in and around San Marcos tonight, compiled by Mercury Scene Editor Hap Mansfield and our content partners at San Marcos Tonight.
Tonight’s Best Bet
If you’ve had a stupid-bad cranky Monday at work, it might be fun to relax at Wake the Dead Coffeehouse tonight at 6 p.m. and watch the Jim Varney, uh, “classic” Ernest Scared Stupid, the fifth of the “Ernest” series. Ubiquitous in the 80s, the Varney character of Ernest is a delight to the 7th grader in everyone. And who can resist lines like “What good is a wooden dog? Oh, sure they swim better, but what am I gonna call him, Splinter?” or Ernest running into a scary looking troll and commenting, “I sure hope you’re from Keebler.” Yeah they’re silly but you just might need a little foolishness tonight.
