Evening Fun This Week Oct. 22-28
Want to get out of the house this week but not sure what to do or what's around? Grab a friend or go solo and make a friend - try these activities and have some fun.
There are a lot of live music acts each day this week around the Upper Valley. Many start at 6-7 pm, so you can enjoy them while eating or if you're like me and eat early, after your meal.
You can see the live music acts on Yellow House Media's calendar here, featuring the Producers, Conniption Fits, Jim Yeager, and more of the local artists you love. There's even a comedy open mic too!
