How About Attending a Local Event This Weekend?

Every once and a while I take time out from blogging to suggest fun things to do over the weekend. What with the rain, the traffic will be heading to P-town. How about going in the opposite direction, to Hyannis where Clean Power Now is auctioning off a 2010 Honda Insight LX hybrid? The car will be on display at Hyannis Country Garden. If you would prefer to bid on art, check out the silent auction being held August 8 at the Castle Hill Center for the Arts in Truro. Get a sneak preview today, Thursday, from 4 to 6 pm. Also worth mention, Jimmy Tingle will perform at a joint benefit for Castle Hill and Payomet on August 2. Don’t miss Patty Larkin’s gig at the Congregational Church, August 6, to benefit Cape & Islands Radio. Is dancing your thing? The Sentimental Journey Swing Band will enchant 100 couples during the benefit organized by the Wellfleet Historical Society, tomorrow night, at the Chequesset Yacht & Country Club. Support the WHS and help get the sign up on their freshly painting building. Jumping forward a week, join Rebecca Arnoldi August 5th at Quiet Mind Studio for Journey Dance. While at QMS, sign up for some great massage. Finally, if you have not seen Noises Off on WHAT’s Julie Harris stage, don’t miss the final performances. The show, which closes August 11, got a rave review in the Banner. If there’s no money for theater tickets, how about gallery openings this Saturday from 5 to 7? Harmon Gallery will present Daniel Maffia’s “Hollywood Icons.” The Left Bank Gallery reception for Graceann Warn and Ellen Grantner will take place from 6 to 8 the same evening. Walk next door to the Cove Gallery for “New Works” by Larry Horowitz. I stopped in last week and admired paintings, including some incredible fish by David Witbeck.
