Good morning, kids! We made it through Monday! All body parts still attached? It's not Halloween yet, so be sure to stay in one piece for now. Here's what's going on today.
Jimmy Chiarella's wildlife photography exhibit is still at the 2 Many Pixels gallery on West Jackson, but it's only there till the end of the month. The gallery opens at 10 a.m. and there's no admission charge. Get there.
East Tennessee's Biggest Bake Sale is kicking off this afternoon at 4 at Lighthouse Knoxville (6800 Baum Dr). Admission is $2-$5. Go get you some baked goods from local bakeries, restaurants, and caterers while raising money for the Ronald McDonald House.
Any day that involves the phrase "Bikes N Brews" has to be a good day. Meet up at Outdoor Knoxville Adventure Center at 6 p.m. and take off on a 10-15 mile bike ride (bike rentals are available). When you get back, there will be free beer all around. How can you say no, especially when it's free to participate!
At 7:30, Chapurukha M. Kusimba, an anthropology professor and curator of African anthropology at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, will be speaking at the Frank H. McClung Museum about "Understanding the Development of Urban Society in Ancient East Africa." The lecture is part of a UT series. It's free to attend!
Taproot will play at the Valarium with Nonpoint at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12-$15. Buy them here or at the door.
At 10 p.m., Danger Cube will take the stage at the Preservation Pub with the Friendly Beasts. There's no cover tonight, but the show's only open to the 21+ crowd.
