Friends, Food, Art, Music -- Twin Ports Events of Note

The Twin Ports Arts Scene is best followed by means of Esther Piszczek's Twin Ports Art blog. I am just highlighting a few additional items of note for the next several days.

Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Eric Dubnicka's I'm Selling Most Almost Everything I Own and Moving
Eric is an artist in its truest sense. His house in Gary/New Duluth has been on the market and it was only a matter of time. Address is 93rd Avenue West which sounds easy, but it's a quirky little set of small turns if you've never been. The house is on the inland side of Grand Avenue as you go west. You will be rewarded if you can make it.

Tonight and Tomorrow
Sarah Greer at the Oldenburg House. 
Improv vocalist Sarah Greer will be Cookin' at the O this weekend.
I wrote about Ms. Greer earlier this week and if you've never been to one of the jazz weekend dinner events, I encourage you to check out the Oldenburg House website at OACC.US to get acquainted.

Tonight and Tomorrow
Melody Mendis: A Night With Barbara
Ironically, in December I interviewed another Barbara Streisand impersonator who just happened to have initials MM. This event is at the Spirit of the North Theater in Fitgers.
Here is ticket info and more on Faceboook.

Sunday, 3:00-9:00
Benefit for Tom O'Keefe 
Izzy's Bar in Superior
If you work in Superior and like fish fry, Izzy's is a great place to grab a bite. EXCEPT on Sunday when $10 will get you a spaghetti dinner as part of a fun-raiser for local musician and all around good man, Tom O'Keefe who has some major medical bills to cover.
There will be live music, a silent auction, 50-50 Raffle, and lots more music.

The Silent Auction will be from 3-6.
If you can't make it, you can still help at the Go Fund Me site

February 19, Noon till 5 p.m.
Blazing Trails
And Finally.... MONDAY February 19 there will be an important event at AICHO in the Dr. Robt Powless Cultural Center called Blazing Trails. If you ever wished you knew what all the regulations were for making food products and selling them, this event is for you. Creativity comes in all stripes, and unfortunately some forms of expression more regulated than others. There will be a meal at noon followed by four hours of information invaluable to small farmers and gardeners.

If you see me, say hello.
