From its earliest days Springfield has provided space for entertainers to give the citizens a few moments away from their daily cares. The first entertainment venue in Springfield was the Court House on the Public Square and by the early 1900s there were theaters all around the downtown and Commercial Street. At one time there were three movie and vaudeville houses on the Public Square alone.
Every Monday night at infusions downtown (300 west Mcdaniel) come and have a few drinks and a lot of laughs as local stand up comedians compete in an open mic competition. The bar offers some of the most unique drinks in Springfield and the comedians always deliver. There are usually 6-8 comedians performing and the show starts at 10 p.m. If you want to get up on stage and tell a few jokes yourself, sign up is at 9 p.m. It's a great way to wind down from those Monday blues. So come on out to Infusions and have a laugh.
