Happy Holidays, I wanted to still do an update of what is going on over the next few days but there isn’t a lot because most people have family related stuff going on…. So with that in mind.
Here is the Word on the Street For December 22, 2005
Tonight at the Art Loft you have one last chance to pick up some original artwork by local artists. The Winter Exhibit at the Art Loft runs from 7-10 at 115 Wealthy SE. They are going to have some food a bit of music and some great art. If you are looking for some more info get a hold of JynnaVyve by phone at 616.856.0366 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org..
On Friday the 23rd you could check out the Friction Xmas At ten bells… on Alpine, I think bands sometimes sound surprisingly good at Ten Bells, this show features If he Dies He Dies, Paucity, and Man At Arms…..
or Friday the 23rd you could check out the live entertainment at Mezze. Last time I was there I had some type of cider-caramel-chi-type thing that was really great, (non alcoholic) and served warm. I am also a big fan of their tuna mango wrap… So if you are looking for some live entertainment and a good bite to eat that is what I would suggest. Starts at 8:00
Also I was told that they are going to be doing another 24 hour theater on January 13- 14 at the UICA and they are looking for actors, writers and directors to get in on the action. They are looking for all ages, sizes experience levels. They do only need 5 writers and 5 directors but they need as many actors as possible. So if you are interested in getting a bit more information get a hold of Rachel Finan email@example.com or 901-9717
So a few ideas before I sign off, if you are looking for some light reading over the holiday’s check out Ben Schaffsma new project on G-rad He interviews a bunch of people that have left GR to go off into the big wide world… and it is interesting. “the interviews project”
Second, shop local.
For Music: Stop buy and pick up that last holiday CD from Herm at Vertigo, I had him special order something and I am picking it up today… or in Eastown there is a new place that just opened called Shipwreck music.
For Unique cloths: down town in the Monroe mall I would check out Angina’s, which is all chick stuff but very boutique and chic. One of my all time favorites downtown is Little Bohemia. Besides cloths they have a ton of sweet gifty type things and it is a perfect last minute shopping spree.
For Books: there is a new place down town that I haven’t been to yet but I Hear that they are open, then there is also all of the kings books on Wealthy and my favorite used book store over in Eastown, Argos, which in my opinion, a book s always better used, ( while I firmly believe a magazine will never be as good after someone else has already read it)
For Shoes: All City Shoes, on Division in the old reptile house, or The Weston Project which is located next to the old morning star space on Weston. ( next to the UICA) Or for something a bit more glam, a pear, downtown on Monroe.
For great little ornaments and nic nac s and all that good stuff, check out Gallery 154 in Eastown or Over-the-River at the center of the universe (East hills, Lake and Cherry)
And LAST but Certainly NOT LEAST!!! have a great happy, long, wonderful, weekend with friends and family. Enjoy spending time with those you love. Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow….

I am a fan of resolutions, even though I rarely make any myself, so if you want to run a rough draft by me or tip me off to any great New Years get together, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com..
