This weekend’s events calendar was packed, and we couldn’t fit it all here. Check out our complete calendar for more events and listings
- Harriet Brewing’s Tap Room celebrates its one year anniversary this weekend. The party starts Friday night with Jimmi and the Band of Souls at 7 p.m., followed up by The Premiums. If you go, get ready to get down to some funk.
- This looks like it will be a very cool exhibit at the Northern Clay Center – ceramic artists show their creative representations of the elements – earth, wind, fire, and water.
- Local singer/songwriters take the stage at Patrick’s Cabaret. Hear Jon Rodine, called “authentic, unpretentious…funky, heartbreaking” by the Star Tribune; Wendy Freund, who studies classical guitar at the U of M; and honky-tonk singer Jen Markey.
- It’s movie night with Transition Longfellow. Watch Wired: A Day in the Life of Energy, and then stick around for a discussion about traditional and alternative energy sources.
- If you’re looking for a last minute date idea, you have to check out Peter Ostroushko at the Riverview Cafe. If we listed all of the people he’s played with we’d be here all day. Just know – amazing violinist and mandolinist who plays in the classical and country world. $15 for tickets.
- It’s supposed to snow, but that doesn’t mean that spring isn’t coming. Get your bike ready for warmer weather at the Spokes open bike shop. Use their tools and get help from mechanics to get your bike ready to ride.
- Stop by Boneshaker Books for family storytime. The format changes every week, so you might also get to sing or do an activity.
- It’s the third Sunday of the month, which means it’s time to warm up your vocal chords and head over to Merlins Rest for a themed sing-along. Kids are welcome, too.
- Cap off the weekend with classic jazz at the Riverview Cafe.
