Wow – a few days into March and I’m just publishing this now. I guess that’s what happens when February is the shortest month and the sun starts luring people (me) outside and away from computers. Anyway – just in time for First Friday (btw: check out the fab listing of galleries, bands, outdoor rec events and more on the event calendar) – here is a shortened edition the YP Roundup. Since you’ve got the handy-dandy DMM calendar, this Roundup will start to feature just one or two events each week from our great local YP organizations. Check out organizational Web pages or the DMM calendar for a more comprehensive list.
March is the month that launched the Young Guns vs. Old Pistols for the Wright-Patt Junior Force Council. Not on Base? Keep up with their events on their new Facebook page. Want more info on YP events behind the gates? Check out the story on DMM.
Check out First Friday. Some really cool opportunities there include a story telling session, live music in a music store, a new art exhibit (or two), zumba, an 80’s skate party, a bike ride, and general frivolity and fun.
Join the Dayton Ballet Barre at Norton’s on Sunday, March 6 for… ballet? NO! It’s to get in the mood for March Madness. They’ll be watching OSU take on Wisconsin. They don’t call it the “big dance” for nothing – of course the Ballet Barre is getting into that action.
Wednesday, March 9 gives you a chance to join the members of HYPE for lunch at Kanoe Cafe. It’s an informal lunch to meet a few new friends and learn about upcoming HYPE events. RSVP by March 8 to guarantee your spot.
Wednesday night brings you the chance to check out Lucky’s Taproom, the Oregon District’s newest tavern, with the Dayton Creative Syndicate. This Happy Hour brings together professionals from design, copy writing, and other creative fields for a good time.
Get the Montgomery County Economic Update when Generation Dayton hosts Commissioner Debbie Lieberman on Tuesday, March 15 for the Business and Breakfast Speaker Series. A free event to attend (breakfast at your cost) with good friends and great information.
On Thursday, March 24 JumpstART is going to campus for a great deal on String Theory featuring the Richter Uzur Duo at UD. Of course, it’s not a full Flyer experience without first checking out Milano’s for some great food and drink specials as well as some great door prizes.
On Saturday, March 26 the American Heart Associate answers the call for YPs who wanted to be included in the Dayton Heart Ball (without the Heart Ball price). Join them at the Red Heart Lounge After-party! Geared toward YPs, it’s a chic event that offers a discounted rate, food, dancing, wine/beer, red carpet photos and a chance to mix and mingle with other YPs making a difference in the lives of others. Contact [email protected] for details.
Other great events tagged for YPs in the region include the Dayton AMA presentation on how to turnaround a downtown, a healthy and tasty wine/yoga combo, and the chance to bring your friends together to Bowl for Kids’ Sake.
