Daily Beat: May 28, 2014



It’s probably too late to make it (and it costs $85), but the Greensboro Partnership’s annual Raleigh trip is today from 10 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. and includes remarks from Phil Berger and Thom Tillis during the lunch. Don’t know who those guys are? You really need to start reading TCB more regularly.

There’s also a free shuttle to the Greensboro Farmers Curb Market from downtown today from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.


The Greensboro Transit Authority’s monthly board meeting is tonight at 6 p.m. at223 West Meadowview Road.

Maybe this is more your bag: At the same time, Fitness by the Fountain at Center City Park hosts Faun Finley’s belly dancing program.

But here’s my pick for the evening: UVA professor Charles Marsh is talking about his new book Strange Glory about Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a “German theologian and Nazi resister.” The event, which starts at 7 p.m. at the Community Arts Cafe in Winston-Salem, is hosted by First Baptist and Augsburg Lutheran.

Or runner up: One of the members of Dr. Dog is part of Lithuania, a Philly-based duo band playing tonight at New York Pizza in Greensboro with new local outfit Jenny Loves Honey. 7 p.m. sharp. Dr. Dog’s a big deal. I remember seeing them play at the now-defunct Underground at Guilford College, and I’m also partial to the event because I can trace part of my lineage to that little eastern European nation the new band is named after.

Greensboro band The Zinc Kings are playing at Foothills Brewery in Winston-Salem tonight, starting at 8 p.m., as part of the brewery’s live music series this month.
