But you never know what you'll get. One recent Tuesday at 9:15 p.m., a 90% male audience waited patiently while a middle-aged man earnestly made his way through Simon and Garfunkel's "The Boxer." A week later, a DVD release party for a "Vagina Monologues" parody brought a buzzing crowd that included several cast members. If neither night sounds like your style, here's good news: Just across the street from Bob's is the 130-seat Falcon Theatre (4252 Riverside Drive,, founded in 1997 by "Happy Days" creator Garry Marshall. It features goofball musical mash-ups by the Troubadour Theater Company and director Matt Walker. Just from a sampling of show titles, you get the flavor: "It's a Stevie Wonderful Life," "As U2 Like It" and "Much Adoobie Brothers About Nothing." Pictured: Sardo's Grill & Lounge Jay L.
