Slugs and Kisses
They've built a temple to futons.
SAT 4/2 Adopting its name from a never-was flea market in San Francisco, Temple Slug (4303 Jefferson, 816-531-5147) opened in 1970 to a generation searching for the latest hippie accoutrements. Thirty-five years later, it's still selling lava lamps to those original shoppers' kids. We don't know how many small businesses last as long as the Slug has, but the longevity seems like a pretty major accomplishment for a shop that reeks of incense and still uses a cash register from the 1920s. The store has built its reputation on being unusual -- selling furniture that customers couldn't find at Sears, spreading the gospel of the waterbed throughout the Midwest and spearheading the futon revolution of the '80s. But when it comes to celebrating its birthday Saturday, the store is opting for a more traditional offering: cake. The party, from 1 to 4 p.m., will be a reunion of old heads and new customers, with live local bands and, obviously, plenty of places to sit. -- Christopher Sebela
Let's Get Together
Hometown restaurants and entertainers unite.
Creating a bridge between KC's often separate worlds of dining and entertainment is Moulin Rouge, an indulgent evening of cabaret that recalls the party days of prewar Paris and Berlin. At 6 p.m. Sunday at the Hollywood Room (100 East 20th Street), diners feast on a bountiful spread of crêpes, fondue and other delectables prepared by an all-star team of local chefs. The show consists of dark and mysterious songs by Alacartoona, feathers and flesh from the Burly-Q Girlie Crew, and performances by the Aha Dance Theatre, Blow-Chi and others. The $60 admission also include an ever-flowing river of libation. For tickets, contact Michael Poppa at 816-561-7740, ext. 4. -- Michael Vennard
