“Winter is not a season, it's an occupation.”-Sinclair Lewis
Ok so its the weekend and also the second to the last weekend in January. One more week and we are left with merely the 14 weeks of wintry February to muddle through before reaching March.You remember March,the old ‘In like a Lion Out like a Lamb’ (much like any typical Detroit football season) month which can be a little dicey weather-wise as well.At least by its end the back of winter should be bent if not broken and we shall begin the warming process once again.
Here at N3 World Headquarters and Squirrel Sanctuary we have already grown a bit weary of the meteorological malaise these past weeks have brought forth, though the cameo appearances by our solar friend have been appreciably helpful if far too rare.
Winter is the gift we Bi-peninsulars have been given to deter the masses from descending on our gem of a state. Visitors value the wondrous warm weather works we welcome in for a half year or so (stretching a bit perhaps) and might enjoy a drop-in for a taste of wintry wonder. but most don’t remain to stick it out year-round. Particularly if they are accustomed to a less, uh, intrusive climate.
The first quarter of the new year is tough and even tougher if you eschew the outdoor activities that abound in the region. Cross country skiing,, snowshoeing, sledding, snowmobiling, etc. are all enjoyable but also require a modicum of snow which can be iffy what with the recent melt and some non frozen days ahead.
So ok, maybe it’s time for a little inside action.
Newaygo Brewing Company likes to mix it up a bit when it comes to their offerings whether they be food or drink. This philosophy brings periodic surprises to their ever evolving carte and Friday they welcome in a Spicy Beer Cheese made with North York English Ale along with hot pretzel bites. The Brewery draws the burgeoning ‘downtown’ crowd on Fridays so the bites will likely be given a pretty thorough test drive.
Check out photographer Stacy Niedzwiecki’s exhibit currently running at NCCA -Artsplace in downtown Fremont. ”What Fifty Looks Like” is a retrospective of her work and offers exquisite examples of the keen eye and creative thought process possessed by Ms. N. The gallery is also a browsers paradise with items from local artists and you can learn about the multitude of classes offered for all ages all winter.
Every year when the Oscars come out do you ever wish you’d seen the candidates? Sometimes like even one of them? Otherwise it seems like there’s no one to root for since some of us turn all things into competition (self disclosure noted).
Well, here’s your shot. Go see “Lady Bird”. Our friends at Fremont Cinemas are currently showing this Golden Globe winner and though we at N3WH have not seen it we received the highest recommendation from a discriminating cinephile friend who would not reveal a single shred of it and merely said “You have to see this movie.”
“I guarantee that if your funny bone has been frozen by this winter’s frigid cold, Fremont High School’s performance of “Play On!” will have it thawed out and warmed up before the curtain closes.”
