Valentine’s Day may have passed already, but a different kind of V-Day is still being celebrated, one that merely requires you either have a vagina or love vaginas. And I’m pretty sure that covers most of us — and for some lucky folks, both apply.

Yes, it’s time once again for the Las Vegas community production of Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues. This benefit production offers only two performances, at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 7 and Saturday, March 8, at Bugsy’s Supper Club (6145 W. Sahara Ave.).

It’s the 10th anniversary of V-Day, the movement founded to raise awareness of violence against women and raise funds to support organizations fighting to end that violence. This year’s national recipient of aid is the Katrina Warriors of Gulf South, and as always, the local beneficiary is the Rape Crisis Center of Southern Nevada.

Tickets for the show are $10 each and can be purchased at either Bugsy’s or the Rape Crisis Center (on the campus of CSN, 6375 W. Charleston Blvd., building B, office 149). All proceeds go to the aforementioned charities, but the warm fuzzies go straight to your heart.
