Local People and Events

Thursday, October 20th, 2005

Calamity JaneThere is much locally to talk about today. Last Saturday we went to Altu’s for music and dinner, and the fabulous Jen Sygit and Laura Bates (known together as the act “Calamity Jane”) played great music and sang gorgeous harmonies. It was wonderful.

Speaking of Altu’s, she has a coupon in the City Pulse local free newspaper this week (Wednesday to Wednesday). It’s inside the back cover, at the bottom. Cut it out and get a deal while joining the best scene in town and eating food as good as it gets.

Doug BerchAnd speaking of City Pulse, they have a nice article on Jen Sygit in the current issue as well. She’s such a talented young singer/songwriter, and a cool person, I’m delighted she’s getting all this press! Go, Jen!

Doug Berch is playing at Altu’s this coming Saturday, from 6:30-8:30. He plays originals on the Hammered Dulcimer and traditional tunes on other fascinating instruments if we’re lucky as well. He’s a dear friend and a wonderful musician. There is sure to be a loyal group of our own friends there this Saturday for that.

NylaOn Friday (today, perhaps, depending on when you are reading this), my friend Nyla is dancing at the Aladdin’s restaurant in Target Plaza (between Marshalls and Pier One) near the Meridian Mall. Shows at 6:30 and 8:00 for about 20-30 minutes.

On Saturday, I’m teaching a mini-toe-up-sock class at Yarn Garden in Charlotte. It is definitely a “go” so you can even just show up and join in the fun, though I’d love an email letting me know you’re coming if you have time.

First-Time Toe-Up sock by LynnHIncluded in the toe-up Saturday class is a copy of my First-Time Toe-Up Socks pattern. In order to do this design in one session, we will work in small numbers of stitches. You can either make a cute little ornamental sock in sockyarn or you can start a bulky yarn slipper version for yourself. The class is 10am to 4:30pm.
