>weekends are for schmoozing

6 Jan

>Friday is going to be jam packed with art music and schmoozing. Whats schmoozing? you mean you don’t know? Schmoozing, fine folks, is the fine art of mingling and networking with strangers. So this Friday try your hand at little schmoozing and see the wonders of it all for yourself. Now that you’ve been enlightened lets get on with the show.

First up on Friday head over to uncommon grounds for ‘ the 411 on local music‘ with-
Hectic Hobo
Holy Water Buffalo
Mountain Hymns
The Descriptive
Private Partners
El Caporal
And more!
Come check out the tunes and get yourselves a drink (of the caffeinated kind). Show starts at 4 Pm and will run till 11 Pm. Its a one drink minimum at the door ($5) but that gets you any drink in the house, plus the whole show. So come support some local music and local coffee.

Now that your plenty caffeinated you should have the energy to check out all the cool stuff happening at the Ogden’s First Friday art stroll!

After all the first Friday festivities have simmered down but your still in the mood for some entertainment then hop on over to salt rock coffee for the first performance of the year by mission improv-able brought to you by hilarity house productions. Mission improvable is a hilarious short-form comedy improv troupe. Short-form improv is a quick, energy-filled style that has the audience yelling suggestions and rolling in the aisles. Its great fun and a ton of laughs!

as with all awesome weekends this one must come to an end. Sundays tend to be a bit blasé. Take this time to relax or check out one of Ogden’s great parks. Sunday is also a great day to have a great cup of coffee and my favorite place is grounds for coffee, try their peppermint mocha, yum.

as always have fun and be safe!
