CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT
The Rosie’s Kids Organization works hard to get funding for children who want to be in extracurricular activities. Considering that these activities might soon become extinct with the current state of our school funding, Rosie’s is holding a golf tournament to raise funds for cleats, ballet shoes, musical instruments and everything else kids need to become well-rounded individuals. Raise money for charity and get your fair share of golf in for the day.
Check-in, 6:30am. $65 per golfer. Eagle Falls Golf Course, Fantasy Springs Resort, 84245 Indio Springs Pkwy., Indio, (760) 342-5000; www.fantasysprings.net.
There’s the Le Chat Nior, Moulin Rouge, Folies Bergére and Kit Kat Klub—all catering to that seedy nightlife that while some find hard to admit we all find enticing. It’s not the red-light district sex appeal that turns us on—okay, maybe for some of us—but it’s the players, the MC, the audience, the music . . . the romance. Cabaret, the hit 1966 Broadway musical takes you through the backdoor of the Kit Kat Klub set in 1931 Berlin, where Sally Bowles emerges center stage of a long but not forgotten story written by Christopher Isherwood. She is the daughter of a Lancashire mill owner and an heiress, or so we’re told. She was dark, she was thin and powered dead white . . . Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Cabaret!
General admission, $15; special, $12; CSUSB students, $6; children 5 to 17, $6. CSUSB University Theatre, 5500 University Pkwy., San Bernardino, (909) 537-5884; www.theatre.csusb.edu.

35MM FOREIGN FILM
Foreign film fans will gush with joy now that they can have a dose of foreign movies every week. Starting this week with a film called Jiro Dreams of Sushi, the Fox Events Center is bringing to you what DVD and Blu-ray can’t: 35mm film. This week it’s a story about Jiro Ono, an 85-year old sushi chef who is considered to be one of the best sushi chefs. Ever.

POP GOES THE HUMOR
Invoking even a silly jingle like “Pop goes the weasel” barely begins to describe the pop art if the 1950s. From the more sarcastic and intelligently enjoyable pieces of satire or the simple comedy of a caricature or cartoon drawing, nothing here will keep you from hiding a well deserved chuckle. Because life isn’t very fun when you can’t make fun of stuff once in a while.
Thru Oct. 7. Gallery hours: Tues, Wed, Fri, Sat. 10am-5pm. Palm Springs Art Museum, 101 Museum Dr., Palm Springs, (760) 322-4800; www.psmuseum.org.
THE ROCKET SUMMER
We haven’t heard a piano intro as catchy as The Rocket Summer’s track “200,000″ since Vanessa Carlton. Only this time, the song is much catchier. On tour with The Scene Aesthetic and States, The Rocket Summer is celebrating a new album, Life Will Write the Words (Releasing June 5), and with it a new song you’ll sing in your car without fear.
7pm. $15-$17. The Glass House, 200 W. 2nd St., Pomona, (909) 865-3802; www.theglasshouse.us.
