Morning Minute: Friday, June 7, 2019

All the Fun Things (that we know about):  A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum opens tonight at Matthews Playhouse. The show made it to ASC's Culture Picks for the week, and with all the rain we’re expecting this one’s the Beacon’s Best Bet. It’s indoors, the theater has had tremendous tech upgrades over the past year, and the talent is always top notch. Just make sure you carry an umbrella for the short walk from the parking lot to the Community Center (100 East McDowell Street).


If the storms start and end early, get on over to North End’s The Loyalist for Coffee, Cars, and Charcuterie, a Father’s Day handmade pop-up event. 

Don't forget the art reception on Sunday (June 9) from 2 til 4 pm at McDowell Arts Center. Touch the art, snack on light refreshments, make art.

Charlotte-based Carolina Lacrosse Association will be in full force this weekend at the Sportsplex. The Big South Summer Classic tournament will be on five adjacent fields this Saturday and Sunday, provided the rain holds out.
