Easter is this coming Sunday, so here’s to an EGGcellent week!
On Wednesday, head to Bruning’s Wine Cellar for their Big-Ass Beer and Cab Tasting. For the record, those are their words, not mine. Or make your way to Nick’s Restaurant for the Rock and Roll Wine Tasting. If you haven’t yet, be sure to sign up to network with other young professionals as part of Generation Dayton’s Speed Networking at the Racquet Club. Interested in photography but don’t know where to start? Head to the K12 Gallery for Young People’s Camera Class. By young, I believe they mean for the young and young at heart. Over at Fifth Third Field, catch the Dragons as they play the Bowling Green Hot Rods. And finally, get your tickets to see Permanent Collection at The Loft Theatre. Don’t let the name fool you…the show won’t be running permanently.
On Thursday, all you green lovers will want to participate in the Dayton Metro Library’s Earth Day Extravaganza at their East Branch. Over at the Dayton Art Institute, learn how to draw by attending the Third Thursday Drawing Workshop with James Pate…hopefully the event will be a big draw for the museum. Sing your heart out at with Karaoke Thursdays at Champps Americana or at Karaoke Night at Therapy Café. And over at the amazing Schuster Center, catch the Zoot Theatre Company’s Phantom Tollbooth at Schuster Performing Arts Center.
On (Good) Friday, all you environmentally conscious people will want to attend the ‘Dump the Pump’ Kickoff at Wright Stop Plaza Transit Center. It’s the last day of “no meat” during Lent this year, so bring your significant other to The Melting Pot for their Couples Seafood Fondue Dinner. And if you don’t have a significant other, you can just have lots of leftovers! I’m sure that the Beatles would want you to catch the Dayton Theatre Guild’s performance of Blackbird. If you don’t care about what the Beatles would like, other performances for Friday include Permanent Collection at The Loft Theatre and Zoot Theatre Company’s ‘Phantom Tollbooth’ at the Schuster Center.
On Saturday, learn about Wines for Easter at Jungle Jim’s. Make your way to church a day earlier (Southminster Presbyterian Church) for Gustafer Yellowgold’s Infinity Sock, An All-New Multimedia Experience. The New York Times described it as “a cross between Yellow Submarine and Dr. Seuss.” Art lovers should make plans to attend the Dayton Art Institute’s Sound Bites: Short Talks about Art. In theater news, you will be able to catch Blackbird at Dayton Theatre Guild or Permanent Collection at The Loft Theatre. Listen to the music of three legendary songwriters at Victoria Theatre in the performance, Soundtrack of Your Life – featuring Jimmy Webb, Barry Mann & Paul Williams. Support the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) with Dayton Acoustic (A Benefit Show) at Blind Bob’s Tavern. While you’re down in the Oregon District, you can also head to Oregon Express to catch the music of Uncle Rico.
On Easter Sunday, after church and after hunting for Easter eggs, it’s all about eating good food. There are numerous places offering Easter brunch, including The Caroline, The Winds Café and Bakery, the Hilton Garden Inn, C’est Tout, McCormick & Schmicks, The Hawthorn Grill, Yankee Trace Golf Club, Fleming’s, and Barleycorn’s. In addition, L’Auberge is offering a 3 Course Easter Sunday Supper. I hope you all have a wonderful Easter with your family!
And now it’s time for the Dumb Joke of the Week. Drum roll please…
Why did the Easter egg hide? He was a little chicken.
