It’s the first weekend of Spring and before the snow starts falling (no, seriously), there are lots of things to do this weekend!
I had Calgary social superstar Mark Hopkins do up a list of his top pick!
What are your plans this weekend?
Kung Fu Panties
March 18-April 3, 2011
Vertigo Studio Theatre (115 9th Ave SE)
Ground Zero Theatre presents a brand-new play by Rebecca Northan! The Sisterhood is an elite, underground vigilante group that…
Y’know what? Screw it. This play is called “Kung Fu Panties”. Go see it.
Local Library One Year Anniversary Afternoon Party!
Saturday, March 19, 2011
131 7th Ave SW (alley entrance)
Tucked away in downtown’s Central United Church is one of Calgary’s hidden gems: Local Library. Not to be confused with the Calgary Public Library, LL is an all-ages arts and culture space that, over the past year, has won hearts and awards with its kooky, inclusive events. This weekend’s birthday celebration features four local bands, make-yer-own button and t-shirt stations, video screenings, a game of dodgeball and CAKE!
Cirque de la Symphonie
March 18-19, 2011
Jack Singer Concert Hall
201 8th Ave SE (EPCOR CENTRE for the Performing Arts)
I’m pretty sure you’ve never seen anything like this before – aerial flyers, acrobats, contortionists, dancers, jugglers, balancers and strongmen performing alongside the full magnificence of the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra. The “wow” factor for this event is off the charts!
ALSO! This Sunday night, I’m hosting ‘We Should Know Each Other’ #74, with special guest Glenn Taylor, Mayor of Hinton and leadership candidate for the Alberta Party. If you want to meet the man behind the guest-blog (not to mention a bunch of cool Calgarians), please join us!
