What to do this weekend…April 29-May 1

I don’t know about you, but I’m a planner.  I’m going to start posting my “what to do this weekend” on either Tues/Wed from now on (and try to be more consistent!), so you fellow planners can start plugging fun things into your calendar!

Here are my Little Miss Redhead picks for the Burlington, VT area & beyond:

Friday, April 29:

Restaurant Week begins (April 29-May 5)!  Woo hoo!  I’d suggest you call & make reservations at least a couple days ahead of time for any restaurant you hope to go to!
More info, events, participating restaurants & sample menus: vermontrestaurantweek


An Evening of Fine Wine Tasing 7pm-10pm at the Country Club of Vermont in Waterbury Center.  Local benefit.  $50 per person, $90 per couple for food & wine: info

Rubblebucket (Afro-funk band) playing at Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington, doors open at 8:30pm, $12

Saturday, April 30:

Montbeerlier Festival @ Three Penny Tap Room
3pm-10pm
Sausages, live music & rare casks of beer- yum!
More info: 

Women Helping Battered Women’s 3rd Annaul Zumbathon at Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington 10am-12:30pm.  Great event put on to raise money for a great organization.  A friend of mine is teaching at this event & I just heard that it is SOLD OUT!  You can still show your support by donating!

Holistic Health & Wellness Expo with healthy cooking demos, facials, dance/yoga/Zumba classes every hour & more. 10am-4pm at the Alburgh Community Education Center, $2/$5 per family.

Everything Equine two-day event (Sat & Sun) at the Champlain Valley Exposition in Essex Junction.  Anything & everything for the horse enthusiast.   $8-10. Info

Sunday, May 1:

Dairy Day at Shelburne Farms.  See cows in their natural habitat & visit the milking parlor.  $5 per car 1-4pm. Moooo.

Zack duPont Band (Indie Folk) at the Parima Acoustic Lounge in Burlington 7:30pm

Misc:
I read in 7Days about an exhibit going on right now at The Green and Blue Gallery in Stowe, VT on redheads.  The exhibit ends THIS Saturday, April 30th, but has been running since April 6th.  The exhibit is a collection of images by photographer Julia Baum from her ongoing photographic project called “A Rare Breed.”  There’s only a small percentage of us in the world, so come check out the photos while we still exist!  The Green and Blue Gallery hours are Thursday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. 646 South Main Street, Stowe, VT.
