Today: The Greensboro City Council holds one of three work sessions this week at 8 a.m. The Human Relations Commission also meets today at 11:45 a.m. in the city council chamber, followed by council’s CRC enhancement committee meeting at 5 p.m. In Forsyth County, the Northwest Piedmont EMS Advisory Council meets at the emergency management office at Smith Reynolds Airport at 3 p.m. Let’s hear it for local government.

The most interesting thing today may be a press conference in Greensboro at 2 p.m. — the ACLU is planning to announce “major developments in efforts to win the freedom to marry” in North Carolina related to the Fisher-Borne et al. v. Smith case. The press conference will be held at the International Civil Rights Center & Museum.

In other news, GTCC is hosting almost a dozen contests today as part of its annual SkillsUSA conference that begins today.


Local author Jo Maeder is holding a launch party for her book, Opposites Attack: A Novel with Recipes Provencal, at Zeto Wine shop in Greensboro at 5:30 p.m. tonight. You’re already late for the RSVP, so click the link above to respond if you intend to attend.

Maybe you’ve already picked up a copy of the paper and read our food article about the Worx in Greensboro. If it made you hungry, SynerG is holding its monthly On Tap event at the Worx tonight from 5:30-8 p.m. And as I learned the hard way last month, it’s bound to be packed, so it pays to arrive early. The event’s slogan: “Drinks are on you, connections are on us.”

Artworks Gallery in Winston-Salem invites you to join them for “a night of short films and fun,” including music by Mike Foley and Cindy Taplin, beginning at 8 p.m.

Speaking of films, Riverrun is still going strong.
