Hooooooray for a holiday weekend!
I for one plan on relaxing so much that I get exhausted from relaxing. Here are some event selections for the extended weekend:
Pin Projekt @ The Pinhook - This is the unique art auction that acts as a fundraiser for the grand Troika Music Festival. Bid on some creatively transformed bowling pins, and support Durham's greatest local music festival. Following the auction, Jason Kutchma will be hosting a karaoke block party. Friday/6:30pm.
The Ginger Thompson Band @ Brightleaf - Part of the Brightleaf Square outdoor summer concert series. 7pm/FREE.
The Doughman Hearts Durham Banquet @ Durham Athletic Park - The Doughman is a charity quadrathlon whose primary function is to raise funds and awareness, through event participation and the attendant advertising, for Durham-based charities. It is a relay format with each team member performing an individual eating and athletic leg culminating in a final team eating and sprint leg to the finish line. The race comprises 1 bike leg, 1 aquatic activity leg (requires some running), and 2 run legs. The banquet is a post-race evening of dinner, dancing, and entertainment, including performances by The Beast and Joe Bell and the Stinging Blades. 6:30pm/$20.
Durham Bulls vs. Rochester Red Wings - Your Durham Bulls are having a three game home stand against the Red Wings. Games are Friday at 7:05pm, Saturday at 7:05pm, and Sunday at 5:05pm.
