10646867_10152443974199107_5073495827363328624_nThe Greensboro Police Department is hosting a walk-thru of Hampton Homes today at 3 p.m., knocking on doors to discuss crime prevention. I kinda wanna go just to see what sort of reception they get.

Today begins the Tea Off & Bar Hop, a competition between five Greensboro bars to make the most interesting tea-based cocktail over the next five days. And it’s all for charity. Details here.

The fourth annual Show of Hands concert is tonight at the Railyard in downtown Greensboro, starting at 5:30 p.m. The lineup includes TOW3RS, who I’m glad I saw Sunday at the Texas Pete Culinary Arts Festival and who Jordan wrote about last week, as well as Well$, Marley Carroll and Yuna. There will be food trucks and beers, too. In past years these shows have been pretty fan-f***-tastic, so check the details here.

Then & Now: Exploring LGBTQ Stories Across Generations is a documentary film featuring people from the Greensboro area, and it screens at the Carousel Cinema tonight at 6 p.m.

At the same time, Salem College is hosting a Fall Fest alumnae meet up. Details here.

Tagtool, those cool-ass artists from Vienna who have been coloring all over buildings and structures in downtown Greensboro, will give the first of two workshops tonight at Elsewhere, beginning at 7 p.m. Click for deets.

This is an important one: Psychotherapist Ashley Warner, the author of the award-winning rape memoir The Year After, will discuss her book and her work specializing in trauma, anxiety and sexual assault recovery at Scuppernong Books in Greensboro at 7 p.m. tonight. Warner is originally from Chapel Hill.
