September : Do Something ...

Well its September First and I was really thinking about reposting and doing a whole bunch of other stuff for September but instead I am going to tell you about stuff going on .

Yeah, Let's Go to Baltimore first because I am not flying to St. Louis now that Southwest FINALLY has non stop flights there ...seriously.

Let's Go to Maryland to go to really this Saturday check out Memphis The Musical at Toby's Dinner Theater ( Yes you read that right) Its dinner and Show the perfect date nite recipe if I was cooking.

I have to go visit my sister in Texas so let's head South to Dallas Fort Worth area on Wednesday September 10th and see Encounters for Free.

Encounters made its U.S. debut in April of this year at the District Architecture Center in Washington, DC where it was featured during National Architecture Week. The exhibition then traveled to New York City where it was displayed at the Center for Architecture during NYC x Design in May.

An interactive exhibition with a surprising touch of augmented reality, Encounters is an architectural installation created to discover, explore, and present the work of LVA—a celebration of their vision and major projects over the last ten years, including the recently-inaugurated Terminal 2 at London’s Heathrow Airport, which opened its doors this June and which has been officially named Terminal 2: The Queen’s Terminal. The exhibition was conceived to create a meditational space in which one may experience the architectural queries and needs of the 21st century through the critical eye of unconventional architect, Luis Vidal.

The opening reception will include a book signing and presentation by Vidal. Additional events celebrating the exhibition will also occur during the run of the show. Following the opening reception the exhibit will be on display through October 31.

75 Flights, Countless stories: what's yours?

On Wednesday September 24th Let;s see what Will Durst has been up to
In this fresh production, Will Durst, the man the New York Times calls "quite possibly the best political comedian in the country," switches directions to pay tribute to the joys, achievements, frustrations and looming doom of the Baby Boom Generation. Durst explains why his chronologically gifted brothers and sisters should refuse to grow old in the face of gravity no matter how many times they forget their password retrieval question. It's a celebration of the maturation of the Boomer Nation. What happens when acid flashbacks meet dementia.

Let's close out September and Go to Hawaii

Sip of Aloha is a fundraising event to support free financial education for Hawaii’s children. This event will be held on September 29, 2014 from 5:30-8:30 pm at Arts at Marks Garage, located at 1159 Nuuanu Avenue in Honolulu.
