Good morning! We're on the downward slope toward the weekend! Let's all muscle through! Anyway, here's what's going on to distract you from your holiday shopping.
Have some weird kiddos who think cold weather is AWESOME (I was one of them, it's cool)? THe Ijams Wee Ones class to introduce two- and three-year-olds to science and nature starts at 10 a.m. The class costs $5-$15. Call (865) 577-4717 ext 110 for more info. It'll be sunny, at least!
Robin Bullock (unknown relation to Sandra) will play at WDVX's Blue Plate Special with Jonah Tolchin at noon. So grab that brown bag and hoof it to the visitor center for some free lunchtime entertainment.
Hey crafty/outdoorsy grownups! Ijams is hosting a Holiday Craft Happy Hour at 6 p.m. I'm sure if I loved crafts, that would sound SUPER AMAZING because for $30-$40 you get crafts, cocktails, and hors d'oeuvres. Call (865) 577-4717 ext. 110 to register. It's a win-win situation, so bring along your non-crafty friends and let them eat and watch you craft.
Hey cyclists/Christmas light enthusiasts! The city is hosting a 6-mile bike ride/ Tour de Lights tonight at 7 p.m. The group will depart from Market Square and meander through the nearby historic neighborhoods. PLUS! If you decorate yourself or your bike or your helmet, you could win a prize. Free cocoa and snacks will be provided courtesy of Mast General Store. Helmets and front white lights are required. There will be bike safety checks starting at 6 p.m. at the park. Check out the city's press release for route details and more info.
Circle Modern Dance will be performing "Modern Dance Primitive Light" at the Laurel Theatre tonight at 8 p.m. Tickets are $13-$15. Buy them here. There will be more showings of the performance!
At 9 p.m., Smooth Operationz will play at the Well with Anna Grace and the Shameless. Cover is $5. 21+ only.
