Awww dang, Hizzoner, we barely knew ya! …Well, come to think of it, that’s not quite true. We had four grand years together, Mr. Mayor, you and the Current. And while we may have quibbled with you about this and that (your recent nomination of SAWS board members; the foibles of Main Plaza; Ms. Sculley’s contract; the city auditor law; and the whole playground-interview fracas, to name some minutia), like the Current staffers you love our city, you’re smart as a whip, and you’re relentlessly forward-thinking (we’re still swooning over Mission Verde, Mr. Mayorax!). And let it ne’er be forgotten that you and First Lady Linda are true-blue champions of las bellas artes — viva Luminaria! Gracias for the river expansion! And a big yeehaw for your forthcoming public-art foundation! San Antonio’s gonna miss y’all, for sure. So we should definitely turn out for the AtticRep’s “A Celebration Send Off Honoring Mayor and Linda Hardberger and AtticRep’s Third Anniversary,” which will honor hizz-and her-honor, and raise much-needed dough for the justly celebrated local theater group. $75 buys food, drink, musical performances, and maybe even (fingers crossed!) a group hug. … Please? 6-8 p.m. May 5, Tobin Estate, 3316 Oakwell Court, (210) 999-8524,
