If you want to feel like a goodwill ambassador, take a street-legal golf cart for a spin. You'll get plenty of waves, smiles and ride-along offers from wannabe passengers.

"Five Women Wearing the Same Dress" is a character-driven comedy. That means the plot is as thin as water. Not necessarily a bad thing.

If you're from the "shaddup and play" school of concert-going, Friday night's bill at the Coach House probably isn't for you. Dubbed "In Their Own Words: A Bunch of Songwriters Sittin' Around Singing," the program also involves a good deal of sittin' around gabbing.
