Sun Star Picks, Nov. 17 – 23

Tuesday, November 17

Do you like baked goods? Visit our bake sale in Wood Center from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m! We’re trying to pay our way to the 2016 Alaska Press Club Conference, so your friendly Sun Star staff will be selling cookies, cake, pie and other treats. Also, ask us about placing a holiday greeting in the paper for that special friend/enemy/frenemy. – Spencer Tordoff / Web Editor

The Snedden Chair is giving a lecture in Murie from 6-9 p.m. The Snedden chair is a well known journalist who UAF brings up to teach and lecture for the journalism department for a year. This year, it’s former ADN photo editor and Pulitzer prize winnner Richard Murphy. – Zayn Roohi / Photo Editor

Eddie Izzard is coming to Hering Auditorium, Nov. 19 at 7:30 p.m. I remember my first introduction to Izzard, following several hours drowning in a pit of YouTube videos. He was charming, flamboyant and full of a kind of humor I had yet to witness in around the decade I had been alive at the time. If you want to spend your Thursday night joyously laughing at the comedic antics of a genuinely clever and humorous man, I suggest purchasing a ticket. – Kyrie Long / Copy Editor

Hell’s Belles, an all-female AC/DC tribute band is playing at the Blue Loon this friday! Tickets are $30 in advance and the doors open at 9 p.m. They had me at “all-female AC/DC tribute band”, but if you need more reasons to go, here’s part of the band’s bio: “Representing for a whole new generation of women that won’t be intimidated, Hell’s Belles actively encourage our legions of lady fans to stand up and be counted, and collaborate with women musicians and causes as a part of the mission towards rock and roll inclusion. Not some down-your-throat feminism, but a proactive support and action spirit towards the continued march towards balancing of the gender scales.” So if you’re all abput rock-n-roll, supporting women in music, or just having a good time, this is probably going to be an awesome concert. If you’re over 21 it is. If you’re not 21 yet (like me), feel free to come hang out with me so I won’t be so sad about the fact that I can’t see kick-ass rock-n-roll ladies. Please. We can play Fallout. – Molly Putman / Layout Editor

If I’m being completely honest, I don’t go to bazaars to buy things. I go because they’re the original Pinterest! If you’re looking for an idea for a nifty holiday craft to tide you through winter break, or for gifts for your loved ones, I guess, you could check out one of the (at least) three bazaars and holiday markets being hosted this Saturday!  Ryan Middle School’s bazaar is from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.  Zion Lutheran Church, on 2982 Davis rd, is hosting one from 10 a.m. –  4 p.m. and Watershed School’s holiday market will run from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.  Find the perfect project or gift and support Fairbanks vendors and organizations! – Danny Fisher / Editor-in-Chief

According to the Google Box, this Sunday will hit a high of six whole degrees above zero! Yes, that’s right. Fairbanks will feel that cozy warmth one last time before our world plummets into the seemingly ceaseless sub-zero temperatures. My advice: take advantage of this fleeting opportunity and enjoy it. Rent some cross-country skis from Outdoor Adventures ($8 for a day, $20 for a weekend), do your best to build a snowman or possibly take a walk to INUA wool shoppe for some great quality yarn and hop next door to College Coffeehouse to knit the day away. – Lida Zakurdaew / Distribution Manager

Come on down to the Pub for Monday Night Football at 4 p.m. to see the undefeated Cinncinati Bengals take on the Houston Texans. The Bengals are riding with the Red Rifle Andy Dalton who is in the talks about being one of the best QBs in the NFL. On the other side is the destroyer of men in J.J. Watt who have dominated the Bengals in the past five years, especially in the playoffs. Come on down for a great atmosphere, and get a beer for football. – Aaron Walling / Advertisement Manager
