It’s a new week, which means a new Gallery Deck. Welcome back to your guide to affordable activities in and around Mequon.

The Rivoli

The Rivoli is a movie theatre in downtown Cedarburg that has been open since 1936. This piece of local history is a great spot for a cheap night out. The Rivoli is showing Jesus Revolution April 10th-13th at 7:00 P.M. Tickets are $2.50 on Tuesdays and $4.00 on other nights. The theatre only accepts cash or check, so come prepared. If this film isn’t of interest to you, you can keep an eye on their website for future features.

Trivia Night

Lime Cantina in Cedarburg hosts a trivia night every Tuesday at 7:00 P.M. Stop in for some Mexican food and the chance to win a $30 gift certificate!

K-9 Carnival

It’s slowly warming up outside, which means festival season is back in Cedarburg! CUW students are partnering with Exterior Pros and Gruber Law to bring a dog-friendly event to downtown Cedarburg. The K9 Carnival will take place on Sunday, April 16th at 1:00-4:00 P.M. in the Community Center parking lot.
