Antigo Area Weekend Activities
space
Wow, is it a busy time in the northwoods!

The opening of the gun deer hunting season, downtown shopping bargains for the hunting “Widows,” Thanksgiving dining and much more are cramming the Antigo Daily Journal's pages as the holiday season roars to a start.

Here's a look ahead, taken from the advertising columns.

KICKIN' OFF THE SEASON

Kiwanis International Antigo Chapter is “Kickin' Off the Season” tonight at North Star Lanes.

Join Hip Pocket and national recording artist Slim Man for an evening of music starting at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door and are available at North Star Lanes and CoVantage Credit Union in Antigo.

THEATER

Wabeno Area Players present “A Deadly Habit: The Superbowl Massacre” now through Sunday at Madonna Hall. Showtimes are 7 p.m. tonight and Saturday with 1 p.m. matinees on Saturday and Sunday all at Madonna Hall.

A sports widow is "mad as hell" and she's not going to take it anymore! The football commissioner mysteriously resigns. A cheerleader stages her own kidnapping. A referee is up to his ears in drug deals and bad calls. This deadly game goes into overtime for an intricate scheme of revenge and cover ups that invites a lot of audience participation.

Table service is provided to all guests as well as a complimentary coat check. Snacks will be served throughout the night as part of the ticket price.

Tickets are $15 per person. They can be purchased by calling (800) 838-3006 or online at
