Woo that was a little chilly eh?
Early autumn? Well, there looks to be some warmer days ahead but the colors are a changin’. Early winter? One can only hope not. While there are aspects of the season to adore, like even the most welcome of guests who stay far too long we at N3 World Headquarters and Rake Repository grow a bit weary of seeing Old Man Winter’s face each morning.
Early spring? Absolutely. Mid-February work for folks?
But we digress.
First of all it is prime time at the Farmers Markets (Friday Newaygo, Saturday and Tuesday Fremont) and there are few epicurean experiences that run close to the burst of flavor that hits your mouth when you bite into your first Honeycrisp of the season. Oh there are many deliciously delightful items being harvested these days but apples are basking in their glory as we speak. Varieties abound with some slanted toward sauce some strictly for hand to mouth eating and then those designed for the art of pie making.
Side note: In our most humble opinion many of the world’s problems could be resolved with pie (Read “Pie: A Global History” by Janet Clarkson)
Anyway if you don’t make it to the markets check out one of our local orchards because apples in season are a true treasure and did I mention their usefulness when it comes to pies?
Second City is a name synonymous with cutting edge, innovative and absolutely classic comedy. Their ability to wring laughs out of every conceivable situation is an art form unto itself and those who have gone to their shows become lifelong fans.
The Dogwood Center is bringing in Second City for a show Saturday night and it promises to be an outstanding introduction to an entire new wave of comedians from the folks who brought us Stephen Colbert, Tina Fey, Mike Myers and Steve Carell.
One thing though, due to some of the adult content folks under 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. For those of us whose maturity level might not parallel our chronological age however there are no such restrictions.
Tickets are $20.00 and are available through the Dogwood Center Box Office, NCCA-Artsplace in downtown Fremont, or on-line at www.dogwoodcenter.com. For information, phone 231.924.8885. The Dogwood Center is located one mile east of downtown Fremont
