Happy Friday! We are experiencing some chilly weather today, which has made our leaves absolutely stunning. If you are around and about this weekend in Chattanooga, there are tons of fun things to do including touring the new art installations Passageways 2.0.
The season of galas has begun in Chattanooga and the Queen of them all is Spectrum, the premier arts gala to benefit the Hunter Museum of American Art. Featuring a seated dinner on the river terrace overlooking the Tennessee River, live auction featuring artworks from around the country, live music and more. This is the see and be seen event in Chattanooga. Tickets are still available and can be purchased online. Event begins with cocktails at 6pm. The Hunter Museum of American Art 10 Bluff View Ave.
Wine In The Woods
The woods are officially one of my favorite places to be. Add a little wine, some live music and a light display? You may never get me to leave. Saturday, the Sequatchie Valley Institute will share their love of the woods, sustainability in landscaping and architecture along with their love of wine in their annual fundraiser, Wine in the Woods. Tastings of craft beer, mead, kombucha and non-alcoholic will be offered along with a hike, live music and a light show. Tickets are $35 in advance and $50 at the door. More info on the institute and the event can be found online. Event begins at 3 pm CST 1233 Cartwright Loop Whitwell, TN
Southern roots rockers/sisters Rebecca and Megan bring their act to Songbirds North on Saturday. Based out of Nashville, these ladies rock and their haunting lyrics will get inside your brain and rattle around for days. (I have Come On In My Kitchen stuck in mine for days). Show starts at 8pm with Anna Grace Beatty opening. Tickets are $25 and are available online. 35 Station Street
SANTA! I know him!
Sorry, couldn’t help it… Elf is one of my favorite movies. Santa arrives at the Hamilton Place Mall on Saturday in a parade which circles the mall. If you are one of those parent who puts their Christmas tree up after Halloween, this is the kick off for all the Christmas themed festivities in Chattanooga. 11 am. Free 2100 Hamilton Place Blvd.
Chattanooga is getting so many nationally popular acts, it is hard to keep up. Dawes will be playing in Chattanooga on Sunday at The Signal. I saw Dawes a few years back and they put on a great show. Hailing from Southern California, the band has created a polished sound earning them the title of Forward Thinking Band of the 21st Century. Tickets can be bought online and are $29.50 and $50 for balcony tickets . Doors open at 7 pm, show starts at 8 pm. 1810 Chestnut Street
The weekend promises to be clear and cold. However, this is the perfect weather to check out all the local breweries in town, Naked River Brewery being the newest and catch a movie, play (White Christmas is at the Tivoli this weekend) or local music act. Whatever your weekend entails, we hope you have a wonderful one!
