Get out those golf clubs and get ready for a little putt-putt on the 400 Block... Yes, in the snow. This week it's the 15th Annual Ice Tea Classic, a fundraiser to benefit the Neighbor's Place of Wausau. Chris Conley spoke with Tom Rau, he's the director of the Neighbor's Place. The Ice Tee Classic starts tomorrow morning on the 400 Block. You can find out more by logging on to http://www.neighborsplace.org/
There's plenty to do, both indoors and outdoors this weekend. Here's your community calendar for the weekend of the 19th.
If you've got the Olympic Bug, and want to try your hand at Curling, the Wausau Curling Club will let you try it out for yourself! Throw 44 pound granite rocks down the ice. See for yourself what a fun and invigorating way curling is to beat the winter doldrums. Food, beverages and entertainment are being provided. And watch live coverage of the curling events at the club. It all gets started at the Curling House at Marathon Park, tomorrow at 11 am and Sunday at noon. The event is free.
If you're looking for some theatre this weekend, UW-Stevens Point has two more showings of Nickle and Dimed. Based on the 2000 best seller, “Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America,” the play portrays the author’s experiences as she works in several different low-wage jobs and struggles to make a living. Joan Holden’s stage adaption is a focused comic epic shadowed with tragedy, and is not recommended for young audiences. Showtimes are tonight and tomorrow at 730. Tickets are 17 dollars.
And Fat Tuesday might have been earlier this week, but you can still get a taste of Mardi Gras tomorrow night at the Chalet on Granite Peak. Enjoy some home cooked cajun food & Hurricane drink specials. Take part in the Silly Slalom plus other races and activities. It all starts tomorrow at 2pm, and runs through 10 pm.
Next week, enjoy some Green Eggs and Ham, and settle in for a good book, it's a Seussical party at the Marathon County library.
