First off, you might be saying to yourself “Where the heck was the August Hot List?”
That’s a totally legitimate question. The answer is this: I was in Aruba.
Now, the idea was proposed that I do an Aruba Hot List while I was down there but I was much to busy on the PIRATE SHIP, at THE SPA, dining at MY FAVORITE FIVE STAR RESTAURANT , lounging on my private dock at THE BEST PLACE TO STAY ON THE ISLAND, hiking to the NATURAL POOL and jumping out of a PERFECTLY GOOD AIRPLANE!!
Yeah, do all those things.
OK! Onto September! The mornings are cool, the sun is golden, the kids are in school…Let’s see what’s HOT!
A Cheers of sorts, it just doesn’t get more “everybody knows your name” than the Sixpence Pub & Eatery! From organizing cruise-ins and poker runs benefiting the community to offering a great line-up of local music, this place is always filled with good vibes!
With a full bar, traditional pub food and a happy and attentive staff, you can bet on seeing Hot Tomatoes there on the regular…ESPECIALLY on Wednesday night! Open Mic with Woody Hupp never disappoints! He regularly features some of my very favorite musicians like Chris Hogsett and Nick Hunter, Becky Goings, Smokestack Betty, Lydia Hyde and so many more.
We look forward to seeing you there!!
Building Bridges 2 Careers, Harmar Elementary School, Marietta Middle School and The Boys and Girls Club of Washington County, are working with the 5 artists of REsolve Studios to fill over 5000 sq. ft. of museum space at the Parkersburg Art Center, with a variety of imaginative interpretations of a clubhouse.
( Below is the original description from the Opening Reception Event )
THE CLUBHOUSE an interactive art exhibit by US!
A giant blanket fort made of meaningful fabric scraps, significant to the ups and downs of everyday life we all experience, along with a bazillion pillows with which participants can playfully imagine their own pillow forts, turning the triumphs and tragedies of our past into a new way of being.
A sitting room that becomes an energetic dance/music/performance stage, transforms experience from that which passively stays at rest sitting into art that floats and flies through the air.
A study or reading room on a tree stand, a platform set within tree branches flowing into building block structures becoming abandoned, quarry-like (a bit like an old mine shaft or rocky, stacked mountainous) structures.
An empty lot or abandoned family farm grows to become a Tin Forest, butterfly garden of scrap.
An art studio where designs on a 2 dimensional page lift off the drawing board, becomes art that extends off the wall inviting viewers to step inside.
Please stop in while you’re enjoying downtown Parkersburg and let the soul-minds of these beautiful creatives transport you to a magical moment in THE CLUBHOUSE!
Sometimes images speak for themselves nut in addition to them, I would like to say a few glowing words about Lure Tattoo and Piecing Studio! The environment, client care and pure talent that this staff offers is unmatched in the MOV. No matter what you are looking to have done, these folks are honest and informative from the start. They take their time and prepare you every step of the way. From timeline and pricing to what to expect in terms of discomfort and healing time. I’ve always been thrilled with with the quality and service at Lure! Make your appointment today !
