Get to the Corner Just In Time to See the Bus Fly By

Retro TV at the Alamo: SAVED BY THE BELL Party Weds, 2/17 and 2/24 at the Alamo Ritz Advance tix available here

"Hey Hey Hey- WHAT is going ON here!!!"

There's never been another "sitcom" like SAVED BY THE BELL, and no matter how much the Disney channel tries to replicate it's magic over and over again, it's likely that there'll never be one ever again. Some of the haters out there might thing that's a good thing, but to those haters I can only say, "Here's something I learned in French class - Au revoir, creep!"

Lots of people smarter than me have talked about why SAVED BY THE BELL has had such staying power and still resonates with so many people who grew up in the late 80s and 90s. I'm not really interested in the why, though, or if it's better to appreciate it all ironically or as the true art that it is. I just like the idea of celebrating this odd little show that really never should have been a phenomenon at all, and watching some of the best episodes of the series with a room full of other people who get it.

And that's exactly what we'll be doing tonight at the Ritz (and next week at the Village, too). We've put together a collection of our favorite SAVED BY THE BELL episodes, and at each show we'll have the audience choose which episodes we watch. We'll quote key lines out loud, play the "studio audience" drinking game, and at select shows we'll have live renditions of key scenes by select members of Austin's own STAGED BY THE BELL cast!

Trust me, this is a night you should be SO EXCITED for.
