The Gipsy Kings play at the Hult Center. There’s always fun and great food to be had at the Saturday Farmer’s Market. If you’re into wine, you’re also in luck because this week on Friday and Saturday you could have a themed wine tastings at Sundance Wine Cellars, Friday Night Music at Silvan Ridge, or Pollinators Uncorked at King Estate Winery. If a 5K is too much, try the 0.5k (not a typo!) at Oakshire Brewing. This “Race for the Rest of Us” raises funds for senior meals and you can get a free Voodoo Doughnut and discounts on pints. Very Little Theater’s “The Skin of Our Teeth” continues, as does Cottage Theatre’s “The Game’s Afoot.” Enjoy comedian, nurse, and advocate Blake Lynch, aka Nurse Blake, at the Hult Center.
