Ibsenfest: Hedda Re-Imagined

Hi All
A couple of us are going to see Hedda Reimagined at the Dalnavert  museum Monday February 10 at 7 pm.  We can meet at the museum at 6:30. The show is only an hour long so if anyone is interested we can go for drinks after the show.
If you would like to go you can order your tickets at https://heddareimagined.brownpapertickets.com/
Email judith.weidman@gmail.com if you are interested.
The Dalnavert is located at 61 Carlton Street.
PS. Sorry about the wonky formatting … for some reason the line spacing isn’t adjusting. Must be the temperatures. Even the letters are huddling up. 😉

Festive Get Together (via Kelly Black)

The winter version of Festive Fridays is happening at Club 200 (190 Garry Street) on Friday, February 1. This tends to be women ‘d’un certain age’ who gather for drinks and dinner starting at 4:30 p.m.

Here’s the note that Kelly Black sent out:

What a great turnout we had in January…over 30 people!

Great food, happy hour prices, wonderful entertainment, meat draws. Come on down and meet some old and new friends.  You just never know who is going to show up.

See you then.
