Quite a diverse sampling of activities around town this weekend. Enjoy!
Fourth year medical student Kathryn King will be hosting a one-hour presentation with ideas to help keep your kids start off on the right foot when it comes to health and eating. Saturday, February 21st from noon to 1pm, Stony Point Fashion Park between Dick’s Sporting Goods and Three Dog Bakery, FREE! Seating is limited, so call (804) 612-8385 to reserve a spot. And then you can take the kids to P.F. Chang’s afterwards! Jk, jk, do you know how many calories are in that Mongolian beef?
Two words for you: Shadow puppets! One more word: FREE. Visiting scholar and artist Madé Sidia is heading up this spectacular find, promising up to 50 carved leather puppets accompanied by a live gamelan orchestra. You might remember those from this article. Saturday, February 21st, 3pm, Cousins Studio Theater at the Modlin Center at UR, free but tickets are required. Call (804) 289-8980 for details.
3. Smokey Robinson: An Evening with a Motown Legend
Smokey Robinson! You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me! Tears of a Clown! Vice President of Motown! C’mon guys, he’s great! The Richmond Forum presents this event hosted by Daphne Maxwell Reid, AKA Aunt Viv from Fresh Prince! I imagine this will be much like Inside the Actor’s Studio but with a less awe-inspiring stack of blue cards. Saturday, February 21st, 8pm, Landmark Theater, 6 N. Laurel Street, $27-$55. Go here for info on buying tickets.
4. RVAjazzfest featuring Steven Bernstein, Fight the Big Bull, Boots of Leather, & Glows in the Dark
Guys, Steven Bernstein is legit, and his willingness to appear in Richmond with these local bands helps make them and us legit too. Read more about the legitness (and the importance of his visit to Richmond) here. Saturday, February 21st from 8pm to 11pm, The Camel, 1621 W. Broad St., $10. Tickets on sale at The Camel.
My giant nerd head just about exploded when I saw this one. It reminds me of how Matthew and I had physics together and he said he would buy me lunch if I put his name on my egg drop project in Mr. Booth’s class. And I did because I’m fat and dishonest. Anyway, this contest involves middle and high school students creating egg containers that can prevent the egg from cracking when dropped from 25 feet up! Trophies and cash prizes are up for grabs. Note: NO BUBBLE WRAP ALLOWED. Sunday, February 22nd, 1pm to 5pm, Science Museum of Virginia, 2500 W. Broad St.
