Six GOOD Things to Do This Weekend
From a climate action polar bear plunge to a Big Easy clothing swap, a roundup of GOOD happenings this weekend in six cities from coast to coast.
Hop on your bike for a brisk 15-mile ride through the streets of the nation's Capitol ending up at the National Harbor for a polar bear plunge into waters hovering in the mid-thirties. It's all a part of the Keep Winter Cold initiative of the Chesapeake Climate Action Network.
Looking to plant your own kitchen garden but a little low on the know-how? The Atlanta Local Food Initiative is holding The Incredible Edible Grow-It-Yourself Fruit Tree, Vine & Berry Bush Sale on Saturday morning at the Atlanta Community Food Bank with all sort of varieties suitable for Georgia’s climate.
Feeling a little uninspired by your closet these days? Exchange your duds at the Ruffian Swap's New Year, New Swap on the Northshore. All unclaimed clothing will be given to local charities.
The Overtown neighborhood was once known as the Harlem of Miami—home to a thriving jazz and blues music scene. The Overtown Music Project kicks off this weekend and aims to shine a light on the "epicenter of musical Miami."
Got e-waste piling up in your closets and kitchen drawers? Here's your chance to ditch it responsibly. On Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., the Metropolitan Market Sand Point will be open to receive your tired and outdates cellphones, televisions, computers, and other electronics.
Lots of art offerings this weekend in the City of Angels. Main Street will play host to the quarterly Art Weekend LA which features new work at dozens of galleries and museums all connected by shuttle buses. Down at the L.A. Convention Center, $20 dollars will get you access to miles and miles of work at the LA Art Show.
