Greensboro City Councilwoman Nancy Hoffmann is hosting her regular Conversation & Coffee open office hours today at Scuppernong Books starting at 4 p.m. Go speak your mind.

At the same time there will be a press conference in Greensboro protesting planned cuts to teacher’s assistant positions. Details here or read about the issue here.


Reynolda House hosts BBQ & Brews starting at 6 p.m., featuring music by Sarah Siskind, art activities, lawn games and of course, barbecue and beer. You’re welcome to bring blankets (think picnic) but not pups, and it will run you $15 unless you’re a member.

It’s Thirsty Thursday for the Greensboro Grasshoppers, who are playing the Hagerstown Suns tonight. Game starts at 7 p.m. There’s a good chance the Winston-Salem Dash are playing, and I could check their website to find out, but I asked to be added to their email list twice and haven’t heard back so I’m not checking on principal. Petty, I know.

St. Louis-based sculpture and design artist Jacob Stanley is giving an artist talk at Elsewhere at 8:30 p.m. tonight, as is DC-area artist Stephanie Williams. Two more artists are lined up for next week, same time and place.

Apparently there’s a birthday party and reception for NC Rep. John Blust (Republican) today at 6 p.m. at 219 Staunton Drive in Greensboro. I wasn’t invited and you might not be either, but Howard Coble will be there, according to his team.

There are two film events at Geeksboro, including the monthly indie film night and “Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters” as part of CAMP KAIJU an hour earlier.
