Today:

The Guilford County Board of Education’s board appeal panel hearing is today at 2 p.m. in Room 120 on Franklin Blvd. (no exact street address provided).

Then from 3- 7 p.m., the Creamery (a new ice cream restaurant in downtown Greensboro near Cheesecakes by Alex) is giving away free scoops. There will be eight flavors to choose from, including Carolina Crunch and chocolate chip cookie dough which I can vouch for, though my favorite is the salted caramel.
Tonight:

The first City Market of the year starts tonight at 5:30 p.m. Read details in the paper or here. All you need to know: the theme is homebrew.

The High Point Public Library is hosting a reception for photographer Ken Sunshine tonight at 6 p.m. Read the print issue of Triad City Beat (on the art page) for details!

1531706_10152153555051704_830935124_nHere’s a unique forum: (today at 6 p.m. at Genesis Baptist Church): Bangladeshi garment workers and their supporters will be calling on VF Corp (of Greensboro) to sign an agreement that ensures factory safety for workers in Bangladesh.

The Forsyth County Democratic Party is hosting a forum for the 12th Congressional District candidates (similar to a recent forum held in Greensboro that we covered) beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Rupert Bell Recreation Center (one of the places I deliver papers every week!).

At 7 p.m., the Greensboro Grasshoppers play the Delmarva Shorebirds at home and the Winston-Salem Dash take on theĀ  Frederick Keys at the same time (also at home).

At 7:30 p.m., a hardcore show begins (let’s be real, this will probably start late) at Glenwood Coffee & Books in Greensboro. It’s partially a benefit for the event organizer’s legal fees. Hardcore fans may be excited to see new Charlotte-based band Self Rule as well as Gut Feeling, who just finished touring with the legendary Earth Crisis.

Then at 9 p.m. at Krankies Coffee in Winston, Dark Prophet Tongueless Monk is playing (hey, I know Jacob in this band!) with FutureNature and Spirits and the Melchizedek Children.

Okay one more thing, that I almost don’t want to post in case you buy the last ticket before I do: Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton (This Is Stones Throw Records) is screening at Geeksboro in Greensboro at 8 p.m. tonight, co-sponsored by CFBG and WUAG. 995803_718948264796212_1297849184_n

Please, tell me again how there’s nothing happening in the Triad…
