Is it too early to be thinking about Halloween? Jonah and the Whales are playing at the Blaine VFW.
Cover charge is $10.
I emailed the manager, he said he could fit up to 100 members, so that's a bonus.
If you remember last year, we went to Bogarts and there was no dancing allowed. It will be different this year.
A COSTUME IS NOT REQUIRED...but it is highly recommended. This is one of the few times of the year we can showcase our inner child, so don't waste it. If there is a princess inside you and you want to show the world, go for it. If you grew wanting to be a cowboy, put your boots on. Are you a pirate? Argggggh.
The only recommendation I give is wear a costume that allows you to dance. If you have five layers of clothing and four layers of face paint, you are going to be very warm on the dance floor.
Look forward to seeing everyone!
This starts and finishes right across from Park Tavern (and I live close by). It will be cold and dark, you can be sure of that. After the race, we will head over to Park Tavern for post-run refreshments (hot chocolate or coffee).
I will probably do more walking than running, but this is a move at your own pace kind of event. (Twice around the park). If you don't want to do the run, show up at Park Tavern at 6:30 p.m. with an UGLY sweater on.
Sunday, Dec. 5, 5:30 p.m.
Louisiana Oaks Park, 3520 Louisiana Ave. S.
Dig out last year's treasure, throw on the masterpiece you just created or simply enjoy the creativity of others. This 5K course loops through Louisiana Oaks Park and the lighted trees of Oak Hill Park. Afterwards, warm up across the street at Park Tavern and revel in your accomplishments while wearing your new race medal. Registrants also receive a goodie bag. Pre-race pickup will be Friday, Dec. 3. More information will be sent to participants. For all ages.
Race begins at 5:30 p.m.

It's costs $35 to register. I don't expect a big turn-out, but it's a great way to get outside in December and have a little fun and exercise at the same time.
God Bless Us Everyone!
What are your Christmas/Holiday traditions? One of mine is visiting the Guthrie every other Christmas for a "A Christmas Carol". It always puts me in the Christmas spirit.
Hopefully you already purchased your tickets. We are going to the EVENING performance on December 12 (12 days of Christmas start right around that date).
We will dress up a little, put on our holiday sweater or dress, arrive at the Guthrie and socialize at 6:00 near the endless staircase (they have a bar there to purchase drinks). We will hang out there for about 35-40 minutes until they ring the bell to start the performance. You need to be in your seats before they start.
Come and visit with the ghost of Christmas past, the ghost of Christmas present, and the ghost of Christmas future. See Tiny Tim and siblings around the holidays.
I have great seats, Orchestra Area 1A. I purchase six tickets, four are spoke four, I still have one left to sell for $80.
