North Star Ballet is hosting a Beginning Ballet Workshop at 1800 College Road, starting at 7 p.m. tonight. The fee is $160, but it’s for weekly classes until October 27. I practiced ballet for a few years and actually enjoyed it quite a bit, although for my age at the time it was mostly waving scarves around. Lucky for dance enthusiasts, this class is for beginning level adults. If you’re a little bored this semester and have the cash, this could be a great way to occupy your time and let you get out all the pent up energy winter is sure to bring.

There will be beer tasting at the Pub at 9 p.m. Personally, I have a strong dislike of this yeast-poop drink, but maybe this will be the opportunity to sample some different kinds and discover whatever beer I dislike the least. There will also be trivia!

Are you ready for some FOOTBALL? I’m not, honestly; Monday Night Football this week features Pittsburgh against Washington DC, and San Francisco against Los Angeles. None of these teams are my beloved Seahawks (SEA HAWKS) but that being said, having a couple beers at the Pub is never a bad time. The show starts when the Pub opens, at 4:30 p.m.
