Former sungod spot Club Ra, at 1111 Lincoln Street, is being reincarnated as Allure nightclub and will reprise Ra's funkadelic Brown Suga on Saturday nights. Because the sweet sounds are presented by the multi-musical masterminds at 3 Deep Productions (www.3deepproductions.com), who brought us Serengeti's suave Safari night, count on DJ Style N. Fashion and DJ Chief to provide all the local color you need.
Finally, Fort Collins has seen the light -- again: The Starlight Theater is back in business at 167 North College Avenue. The new owners at this seemingly cursed locale are businessmen Dan Kerig and Joe Vader, the pair behind the successful Lucky Joe's and Zydeco's.
