To Do Tonight - 4/21

Chapman Dialogue Debate with John Yoo, 11 a.m.

Okay, so this isn't technically going on tonight. It's actually going on right now. But if you're not too busy this morning, we suggest heading over to give this debate a listen. Yoo is currently a visiting professor at Chapman Law, and during his time working with the Bush administration as legal council he authored the infamous "Torture Memos" defending water-boarding and other "enhanced interrogation techinques." This one could get heated, folks!

Our Mother's Brief Affair, 8 p.m.

Written by Richard Greenburg (who has secured a Tony Award, Los Angeles Drama Critics Award, an Oppenheimer Award, a Pulitzer finalist nod and scores of other accolades), Our Mother's Brief Affair comes to South Coast Repertory in another round of impeccable storytelling--no need for fancy action sequences here. Read Joel Beers' account of the production here or in the current edition of OC Weekly.

Past Tents: The Way We Camped, 9 a.m. to close

What could possibly be more thrilling than walking around a campsite from the '20s? Or better yet, a campsite from even earlier?! Three exhibit themes - "Round the Campground," "Hitting the Trail," and "Open Roads, Open Fires" - exploring the history of camping in California with contemporary prints of rare historic photographs and objects, will be on display at the Old Orange County Courthouse Museum in Santa Ana this month. Why not take a gander, then return to your ultra-luxurious Winnebago complete with satellite television, microwave and central air conditioning and breathe a sigh of relief.

Old Courthouse Museum, 211 W. Santa Ana Blvd., Santa Ana, CA; 714-973-6605
