The Benson Theatre Project will be hosting a special Toons & Brews event on Feb. 22 at the Pizza Shoppe Collective in Benson.
Toons & Brews will feature works by artist Jeff Koterba, beer tastings provided by New Belgium Brewing and food from The Pizza Shoppe.
The exhibit will open at 7pm, and Koterba will be giving a talk at 8pm.
If you go down the stairs to look at the train cars in the Durham Western Heritage Museum, you may hear the voices of Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin, or even Lady Gaga. Don't be alarmed, just follow them past the train cars and on to the "Women Who Rock" exhibit.
At the entrance to the exhibit, you'll be greeted with a mural of vinyl records. Each one features interesting facts about women in music history from the early 20th century to today. It's a good tease for what lies ahead in the rest of the exhibit.
Next week UNO will host the 2012 Show Choir Invitational, and the university's vocal music department would like to invite everyone to attend.
Walking into Canvas and Cabernet, a new addition to the Aksarben area, you might not be sure what you're getting yourself into.
On one side, the walls are covered in seemingly elementary paintings. The walls on the opposite side are lined with artistic masterpieces. There is a stage and about 20 painting stations. Keep walking and there are shelves with eclectic items for sale. Keep walking farther, and you'll run into the bar.
At this point, you aren't really sure if you're in a bar, gallery, gift shop or classroom.
The truth is that Canvas and Cabernet is all of these things. It is an exciting new venue that offers instructed painting "classes" to groups. But, this isn't your average painting class.
With Valentine's Day slowly creeping up, it would be wise for all of you procrastinators to start planning now. Otherwise, you'll find yourself stuck waiting 30 minutes for a table at Applebee's. Or, in a movie theatre sitting rows away from your date, because you got the only two seats left in the theatre.
This year, beat the crowds and woo your valentine with a not-so-typical night of romance. The Joslyn Art Museum will be hosting a special night of food, cocktails and art on Thursday, Feb. 14 at 6pm.
