It’s hard to believe but it’s the first weekend in November! Only a few more weeks until…oh, I won’t go there yet. There’s way too much to do first.
- Intiman Theatre brings the play “Abe Lincoln in Illinois” to History House (790 N. 34th St) tonight at 6:00 p.m. It’s part of their Front Porch Theater program which takes a play to different neighborhood gathering spots and gets everyone to join in. Family and friends read the play aloud then talk about it’s themes and ideas. Cost is free and everyone is welcome to participate or just enjoy.
- It’s the first Friday of the month so that means Fremont First Friday Art Walk from 6:00-9:00 p.m. no matter what the weather. Art fans can get free tastes of 509 Wine (1300 N. Northlake Way, Suite 509) before starting their trek. There’s a jewelry trunk show at Fremont Jewelry Design (3510 Fremont Pl N). And painter Tyson Anthony Roberts has a new opening at Fremont Coffee Co. (459 N. 36th St). But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Click here for an art walk map and a complete list of all showings.
