The city of Greensboro is hosting a Rail Trespassers Safety Summit starting at 9 a.m. today at the  J. Douglas Gaylon Depot downtown.

The New Winston Museum invites you to its Salon Series at noon today: “Join us as Dean Najouks, Riverkeeper and Executive Director of the Yadkin River Keeper, will be here to discuss the history and how we can create a sustainable future for one of our most treasured local natural resources, the Yadkin River.”


The Winston Under 40 Social is tonight from 5-7 p.m. at the Piedmont Club. Details here.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is showing at the Carolina Theatre in Greensboro at 7 p.m. Also, the Monti is happening at the same place at 7:30 p.m., presumably in a different part of the building.

You’re going to read this one twice: The Weatherspoon Art Musem is screening  How to Cook Your Life at 7 p.m., a film about “a disarming Zen priest and vegetarian chef.” Somehow it’s rated PG-13. Thirty minutes beforehand, there will also be “a light sampling of locally made goods from Congolina Farms, Nora Glanz Bakery, and Quaker Acres Apiary Honey.”
