Whether or not the
weather wants to cooperate, it’s spring, dammit. So, this weekend, grab a
popsicle, throw on your Easter best, go play in a park and celebrate the season
— even if you have to do it while wearing a sweater.
Local small-batch gourmet
opens for the season this Final Friday.
Swing by the storefront at 1437 Main Street beginning at 5 p.m. for music, a
photobooth, sammies from C’est Cheese and, of course, delicious and unique
frozen treats. The pop shop will subsequently be open 1-6 p.m. Thursday-Sunday
and the streetpops cart will make an appearance at various farmers markets and
events through fall.
You probably won’t
be able to pass a yard or park this weekend without seeing neon, plastic orbs
dotting the grass — it’s Easter egg huntin’ time, y’all! The newest community
hunt goes down at Washington Park
Saturday from 10 a.m.-noon.
troupe OTRimprov presents “The Chronicle” Saturday at Know Theatre. The
improvisational comics will take “themes, ideas, characters, words and scenarios from guest
storytellers and turn them into a beautifully chaotic series of improvised
scenes.” Tickets are just $5 and can be purchased here.
If you’re looking
for new places to check out, eat, drink, shop or play, be ruse to read our Best
issue. From Best Burger to Best New Bar to Best Bookstore, you voted and the
results are in. And don’t forget our staff picks — we have pretty good taste,
too.For more stuff to do this weekend, check out our To Do page
