“Something fabulous is out there, taking shape. Emerging. Peeking. Calling your name.”-Anonymous

There is a reason we recognize spring as a time of rebirth and rejuvenation as so much is emerging this week, like the daffodils in this photo taken by Mike Muckle at Bread Lock Park. Speaking of that park, the Warren Heritage Museum there, along with its companion the Jim and Mary Lee Museum at Morris Canal Plane 9W, are open this Sunday for the first time since the pandemic started!

Meanwhile, hop down to More Things to Do for Easter events or click here to find happenings this weekend and next! Go find your new best friend through Hops for Hounds happening at several breweries around the county. Let someone else do the cooking while supporting local organizations like First United Methodist Church or Mt. Lake Fire Co. for fish and chips or a ham dinner. And, as always, the music is flowing throughout the county at a stage near you!

Whatever your vibe, Happy Weekend and Happy Wanderings!

Day of the Dead - that rare holiday where grief gets exchanged for celebration!  It's never an ordinary day, but for 9-year-old Bibi and her mom Francine, their family life in Akron, Ohio is about to forever change.  1: their dog just died. 2: Francine's nearly broke.  3: their dearly departed are far from dead and buried - they aren't even dead.  So if you're thinking to cross the Rainbow Bridge, better fasten that seatbelt! This show making its world-premiere run was developed through Centenary Stage Company's Women Playwright's Project and written by Ruth Kirschner, who was recently nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for Drama. There are just four performances left, including a Live Stream of the April 9 show.
