Flight Night @ Secco

Mon Aug 27 6:00 pm
Trying new things is like hitting the refresh button on our existence: it delivers us from complacency, engages our senses and forces us to question our tastes, values and, in turn, our very nature. Yet, more often than not, most of us will opt for the familiar over the unknown. Every Monday.

Byrd Market (Oregon Hill)

William Byrd Community House, 224 South Cherry Street
May 1 through October
Every Tuesday

Cinematheque @ Grace Street Theater
