Hey Weelunkers, Wheeling is hot this weekend — in temperature, in what’s going on, and in celebrating our mothers, of course :). We hope to see you out and about attending the many events the Friendly City has to offer.
And yes we consider yard / garage sales as “hot events.” See below for more info.
The Stifel Fine Arts Center will be the place to be Friday night to have a combo not touched even by peanut butter and jelly: Beer and Laughter. Sample five craft-brewed beers from the innovative DuClaw Brewing Co. while enjoying the standup comedy of Dan Long. The event includes heavy hors d’oeuvres paired with each beer.
Give a nod to mom and to Wheeling industrial history by creating one-of-a-kind pieces of art glass with mothers, grandmothers, daughters, aunts, and friends at Oglebay’s Glass Museum Studio. And then — voila! — you have your Mother’s Day present in hand.
Do you remember the Trainjumpers? Here’s the new form with some great new additions: Two Bridges. We love their description of Saturday’s event:
Wheeling’s rowdy soul brothers release their debut album “Appalachian Soul” with a big throwdown party at River City in downtown Wheeling. The bad man himself, Adrian Niles, is going to be opening the show. Don’t miss it!
Where else can you park your car, grab a triple IPA at Wheeling Brewing Company, a fish sandwich at Coleman’s, and check out Robert Sako, an award-winning artist in acrylic, photography, digital imagery, and drawing. But with his pastels, (featured this month), he has stuck to natural subjects and organic objects such as fruit, vegetables, and landscapes. His landscapes are almost dream-like with soft subtle highlights. There is a school of pastel painting which creates almost identical landscapes.
