Daily Beat: June 17, 2014


Today is one of those work-hard, play-hard days where there’s not much going on during the earlier hours (besides Triad City Beat‘s new print issue circulating the streets — go grab one!) and more than enough to keep you busy at night.

Unless you’re headed to Tunes @ Noon in Greensboro’s Center City Park, with two food trucks and live music by Kris Ferris.

Partners Ending Homelessness and the Volunteer Center in Greensboro are hosting a poverty simulation. The event is free and starts at 5:30 p.m., but you need to register.

A/perture is screening Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory tonight at 7:30 p.m., accompanied by thematically relevant art by Les Caison III.

At the same time, Songwriters on the Road hits the Hanesbrands Theatre nearby in downtown Winston-Salem.

Speaking of, North of Nashville plays at Foothills as part of Bluegrass Wednesday tonight at 8 p.m.

Looks like downtown Winston-Salem wins today, folks. Read more about what’s going on this week in Triad City Beat, and sign up for the Weekender email list here.
