Daily Beat: June 26, 2014



Join the Tree of Salem walking tour in Old Salem at noon. Details here.

The biggest event today: USA plays Germany in the World Cup at noon on TVs everywhere. This is the Big Kahuna y’all — if you’ve been missing the World Cup (or been following diligently), now is the time to play hookey.


The Greensboro Youth Council invites high school students to its open house from  5:30 – 7 p.m. tonight at 501 Yanceyville St. to learn about the organization and volunteer opportunities.

I’ve never heard of anything quite like this. Comedian Peter Wilbur will be giving two free tours, at 6 and 7 p.m., of the gallery at SECCA tonight. The idea is to get away from the traditional docent-led model and dovetail with the Eric Fertman: A Comic Turn exhibition now on display. Why not?

Four local Caribbean-American artists — hailing from Cuba, Venezuela and Puerto Rico — will show their work as part of Casa Azul’s Caribbean night on Thursday beginning at 7 p.m. There will be music by Soños, dancing, and some food as well. This event was initially scheduled in May but was postponed until now due to terrible weather.

Winston-Salem is holding an informational meeting at 7 p.m. at the Bolton Home and Garden Building at the coliseum all about cell towers. It’s been a big issue for some residents and will likely be well attended.

Our maybe you’re more of a gastronaut. That’s okay, because GRAZE chef Richard Miller is offering a special tasting menu tonight, also at 7 p.m. (in Winston-Salem). Perfect for those who missed Fire in the Triad, because he’ll be sharing his four winning dishes.

Audrey Love is giving an artist talk at Elsewhere in downtown Greensboro tonight at 8:30 p.m.
