Art. Music. Food. All our favorite things.

2. Botanical Conservatory – Mary Poppins Garden Party

January 14, 2017 – April 2, 2017


The theme for the gardens this season is Mary Poppins! It’s absolutely magical. Today is opening day, so be sure to check it out between now and April.

3. First Presbyterian Theatre presents: Heroes

Thursday, January 12 through January 28 (weekends only), at 7:30


This will give you all the feels. It’s a funny, yet sad, show about soldiers who never quite recover from their experiences in war. You have plenty of opportunities to go see it, so don’t miss it!

Thursday, January 12 from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.


True stories in front of a live audience. This showcase features stories from Mark Lahey, Christie Bowen, Joel Miller, Erica Anderson-Senter, Dan Kinnaley and Jennifer Watts.

5. Vegan/Vegetarian Brunch Weekend


Yay! Vegan menu! They’re adding a veg menu to their existing menu, so for all you who can’t go without your meat – don’t fear! For those of us who are meat-free, we can grab a mimosa have some great brunch.

6. Winter Warmer

Saturday, January 14 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.


It’s the 4th Annual Winter Warmer! Tickets are limited, so be sure to get one before they sell out.

7. FW Bombshells Present Revolution: Real Live Girls!

Saturday, January 14 from 9 p.m. to 12 a.m.


This show is all about celebrating the power of the female. They’ll be tearing down stereotypes and empowering women. In line with the message of the show, they’ll be holding a charity raffle for Charis House and a pad/tampon drive for the YWCA.

8. The Princess Party

Tuesday, January 17 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.


Princess Party! Before Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella, take your little one to meet the princess! Tickets to this party are sold separately, but my guess is that they are WORTH IT.

9. Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella (Touring)

Tuesday, January 17 at 7:30 p.m.


This is an absolutely fantastic show. It’s every part of Cinderella you love and more.

10. Furniture painting 101

Wednesday, January 18 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.


Have you been to Saving Grace Vintage Boutique? It’s one of my favorite places on earth. Their furniture is amazing. So if you have an itch to DIY but you’re not sure where to begin, consider this workshop! You won’t be sorry!
