The weekend is upon us again friends. Now, you could stay home for two straight days eating takeout pizza and jellybeans while watching movies, but would that really be satisfying?
If yes, then go ahead, there's probably at least one John Hughes movie playing somewhere on your cable package.
But if you have the ambition, drive and sheer will to haul yourself out of the house this weekend, here are our Top 5 picks for ways to make your weekend better than that of a jellybean eating, pajama wearing couch human.
Number 5 - Look at art, there's a bunch of it at Plug In
It is, in fact, the final installment of the My Winnipeg project, this one's called Artists' Choice. There's an opening reception Friday, February 8 from 7:00pm to 11:45pm. And what makes this show a little bit different, is that it invited participating artists from the previous installments of the show to nominate another artist and one of their works for the exhibit.
14 were chosen - it's like Survivor: Art...kinda - work by Erica Eyres, Steven Nunoda, Paul Cherwick, Jake Moore, Richard Hines and others made the final list. Our own Alison Gillmor snuck in early and took a peek around. See what she thought here, then head down, soak it all up see what you think. Then tell someone. 'Cause if you don't talk about art...is it really there?
Number 4 - Listen to music, in this case, the music of Whitehorse
Former Winnipegger Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland of the duo Whitehorse are in town, performing with Del Barber and Daniel Romano at the Burton Cummings Theatre on Friday night.
This husband and wife musical duo perform together, tour together and often share a microphone onstage. But don't feel your own relationship is inadequate...maybe they spend time apart on Valentine's Day?
