I have a feeling that my check liver light may come on this weekend. This weekend we have a ton of fundraisers that benefit our local community and they include drinking. So beat those winter blues and attend a show, support a local cause, or feast on amazing food!
Friday, February 8th
Mamma Mia, here I go again! The Community Theatre of Terre Haute is performing Mamma Mia Friday, February 8th-February 10th and February 15-17th. This musical will have you dancing in your seats.The stage comes alive with the music of ABBA as Sophie invites her mother’s three former loves to her wedding in hopes of meeting her dad. Directed by Karen Crispin. Rated PG. $20 adults, $15 students and youth. Weekend shows begin at 8, Sunday matinee is at 2:30pm.
The Great Affairs with special guest Nashville singer/songwriter Joshua Ketchmark opening up with a solo acoustic set this Friday at 10pm at the Verve.
While they may have cut their teeth on KISS and The Black Crowes, or Queen and Humble Pie, The Great Affairs simultaneously draw from the Pop well of such ‘80s icons as Rick Springfield and Bon Jovi, juxtaposing these elements with the sound of more contemporary acts like The Gaslight Anthem, Butch Walker, and The Stereophonics, to offer up the kind of sweaty, gimmick-free, big guitar anthems that’ll rattle your brain, just as easily as they might slip into lonesome troubadour mode and soothe your soul.
The Great Affairs recently signed to NY-based Kivel Records for the release of their new LP ‘Ten & 2’, due in June 2018. Once again recorded with Grammy-nominated mixer and engineer Michael Saint-Leon(Buddy Guy, James Cotton), this record finds the band pursuing a more muscular, guitar-heavy sound, owing as much to their Classic Rock forebears as formative efforts had to the Singer/Songwriter model. Inspired perhaps by the 2017 covers collection ‘Six Pack’, where the band mined and re-imagined gems from ‘70s FM stalwarts like Thin Lizzy, Fleetwood Mac, and Cheap Trick, the forthcoming collection openly embraces their various influences to create a sound that is both comfortably familiar and refreshingly its own.
Please join J’s Bikes, Trek, & Emily Brana on Friday February 8th at 6:00 pm for a Yoga for Cyclists class. Please arrive at 6:00 PM, they will start the yoga session around 6:00 PM. This clinic will go over stretches and yoga positions that will benefit any cyclist. Please bring your own yoga mat and wear comfortable clothing. They only have space for 23 participants!

ABOUT THE 2019 POLAR PLUNGE
Jumping into a frozen lake, river, or other body of water in the middle of winter may seem like a crazy idea, but over the past 20 years, thousands upon thousands of Special Olympics Indiana supporters have risen to the challenge, braved the elements, and made our annual Polar Plunge a huge success.
Celebrating 50 years of changing lives in 2019 and now serving more than 16,000 people across the state each year, Special Olympics Indiana is aiming to raise at least $1 million through the 2019 Polar Plunge season for the first time in its history. All funds raised will directly benefit current and future Special Olympics athletes.Come “wine” down at The Sycamore Winery throughout the winter months with live music, food, Big Leaf Brewing beer and, of course, wine.
