We are literally calendar-wise on the very cusp of Spring ladies and gentlemen and we at N3 World Headquarters are pretty pumped about the whole thing. Grilling without gloves, a walk without layering, perhaps even holding an implement of outdoor maintenance that is not a snow shovel looms ahead. It’s even looking to be a tolerable weekend weather-wise.
By now you should know if your bracket has been busted and if you’re a Michigan fan they won’t be playing until about 10 pm Saturday with State (should they advance as expected) not likely to be taking the court until later in the day Sunday.
Friday and Saturday LionHeart Productions will be putting on Junie B. Jones Is Not A Crook at the Grant Fine Arts Center with shows at 7pm Friday and 3pm and 7pm Saturday.
The characters created by Barbara Park in her kid-friendly book series come to life in this imaginative and fun for the family production.
They will be repeating their performance at the Dogwood Center next week as well with shows on Saturday and Sunday at 2pm.
Haven’t been to one of the nearly world famous Lenten Fish Frys at St. Bart’s or All Saints yet? Not many Fish Fry Fridays remain since Easter is on the horizon so don’t delay.
This weekend it is indeed St. Patrick’s Day and a Saturday as well. This means celebrations will be considerably ramped up and hopefully each and everyone of you out there who are looking to be involved in some level of imbibing will have a designated driver or live within stumbling distance of home. If you’ve no other reasonable options other than sleeping in your car there is a local cab service known as JC’s Subercab. You can call them at 231.519.9072……….or you can call your lawyer at 2 a.m. and prepare for months of melancholia along with mounds of monetary misplacement.N3 cares about our readers and wish them good health as well as limited legal entanglements so plan ahead people.
We love the Irish Music Fest It’s so very cool in so many ways particularly the volunteers who create a most welcoming atmosphere in a near-perfect setting.The Festival Folks are holding a party at Bella Maria’s Ristorante and Event Center, 513 W. Pontaluna Road, on Friday and Saturday, March 16-17.The music should be outstanding and proceeds benefit the Festival. See the story in our feature page.
Who doesn’t love a parade?
In Muskegon the St. Patrick's Day Parade will step-off from Fourth Street and Clay Avenue at 11am and travel four blocks down Clay to Hennessy's Pub & Whiskey Bar at the corner of Clay and Jefferson Street.
Shorter parade in mind? Try the Conklin St Pat’s Parade that begins at 10:55am and ends at 11am at the Conklin Bar where there will be will be Irish Music flowing all day beginning at parade’s end.
And Sunday is Free Admission Day at the Grand Rapids Public Museum. Check out the story on the home page.
Lots to do in the coming weeks so shake loose a little of that hibernation mode folks.
Spring will be coming round that lake-effect corner any day now.
