Your hyperlocal satirical news live show thinks this is a big enough news week to stage three consecutive shows starting tonight.

That’s right, Bar Politics has three shows this week.

That’s because Alamo Manhattan comes back with its new plans for a Bishop Arts development at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 3, in the Hitt Auditorium at Methodist Hospital.

The developer’s plans for apartments and retail space in the area surrounding Zang and Seventh streets met with much disdain when plans were first released earlier this summer. The ensuing discussion divided neighbors, even though everyone hated Alamo Manhattan’s design.

“We’ve put a ton of work in it, and I think the community is going to be very excited about it,” Developer Matt Segrest says of he new design.

But it’s like you might as well not even go to that meeting unless you hit up Bar Politics for knowledge and satire. Also, a lot of tension.

At 8 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 1, Ten Bells Tavern owner Meri Dahlke and Go Oak Cliff co-founder Rob Shearer are on the panel.

Patrick Kennedy, founder of  A New Dallas, and Brandon Castillo of the Dallas Homeowners League, headline the 8 p.m. show Wednesday, Sept. 2, at Small Brew Pub. Jazz/hip hop quintet Spenser Liszt & His Disciples perform after.

And to wrap it up: We hope Scott Griggs and Angela Hunt are at least a couple beers in for their 9 p.m. show Thursday, Sept. 3.
