Here we go. October is in the rear view mirror and November is upon us. We've endured the first tease of snow and the three big holidays lurk ahead.
As Emily Dickinson once said, "November always seemed to me the Norway of the year".
Yeah I don't know what that means either but here you go for some weekend fun and don't forget to turn those clocks back Saturday night so that the sunset will start occurring around 2:30 in the afternoon.
John Gorka will be coming into town after playing at packed houses on his extensive tour including a Friday appearance at The Ark. Haven’t heard of him? Well, take a listen to him on youtube and if you’re a fan of folk you’ll be highly impressed , but come to think of it if you’re a fan of folk music and Americana sound you already know about Gorka. His show delivers great music and his witty stories are sure to provide some laughs.
Saturday at 7:30pm in the club like setting of the Black Box at the Dogwood, so shake off this meteorological preview of things to come, check out the new (closer) entrance to the Dogwood, take in a great show while sipping a couple adult beverages and pretend for a while that Old Man Winter is still far off. Details:
Upcoming events include Che Apalache on November 14th and a cool kids show coming in early December when the Velveteen Rabbit hops into town.
NCCA Artspace downtown Fremont. Saturday at Drop-In Art kiddos will be making clay turkeys starting at 11am,
HERE IT COMES...
Ok so we know Halloween is behind us, thinking about Thanksgiving is still off a ways, but make no mistake we are about to be plunged knee deep into the Christmas Season. Face it, Hallmark has already put the Christmas movie train in motion and it is chugging along full throttle now with new movies popping up with increasing frequency and if you were in Meijer and Walmart this week the Halloween stuff disappeared with the speed of a fb fireworks rumor and the Christmas stuff that began to make appearances has gone full throttle now.
This weekend there are a few of the arts and crafts shows popping up around the area. If you want to take a little drive Morley Stanwood has a Holiday Bazaar Saturday from 10am-3pm, and the same day brings theKnights of Columbus Craft show in Sparta. This one has been going on for over 3 decades and the doors of Holy Family Church will be open from from 9am-2pm.
Quite frankly these should be seen as warm-ups because next week comes the granddaddy of all local exhibitions of this type.
Yes, the vaunted Jingle Mingle returns to the Fremont Middle School next Saturday and at N3 World Headquarters and Hallmark Holiday Movie Preview Center (N3WH&HHMPC) the day is circled on calendars throughout the HQ.
If you’ve been there before we are truly preaching to the choir because there are people who have been coming so long that vendors can predict the times they arrive at their booth to the very minute.
If you are a newbie to the fray you simply must go. Beyond the absolute plethora of vendors who boast a wide variety of items just begging to be taken home, there is an aura about the event that is hard to describe. It’s kind of a community feel. We’ll try to get a little more skinny on it before next weekend.
The Fremont Moose apparently serves up breakfast the first Saturday of the month. I don’t know if this is new or not but, hey, we’re always looking to expand our circle of breakfast options and for 7 bucks it might be worth a venture into Moose Country. We have yet to enter the Lodge(is there a secret password?) and know little of fraternal organizations other than the Sig Taus of CMU in the early 70’s and that could be a bit dicey on occasion.
You say you missed the book signing for Mango Rash the wonderful read by local literary treasure Nan Pokerwinski? They packed the Artsplace last week but tomorrow she will be at the Croton Library from 11am-12:30pm.
Here’s our recent story:
The second season of The Komnisky Method was released on Netflix and it has not disappointed. Unlike the few newer sitcoms out there on the networks that have thus far been nothing but disappointing.
The World Series this week had everything and if you were watching closely in game 6 we mean Everything. We heard a radio guy go with the ‘’what’s the big deal’ reaction explaining that during the 70’s streaking was a common form of artistic expression (or a drunken dare we assume) and this was much the same.
Well, we at N3WH do recall the Academy Awards being ‘streaked’ on live TV back then when a man named Robert Oppel ran naked across the stage. At the time David Niven was at the podium and classically quipped "Well, ladies and gentlemen, that was almost bound to happen... But isn't it fascinating to think that probably the only laugh that man will ever get in his life is by stripping off and showing his shortcomings?"
See you soon.
