When can you come over and pick up your holiday gifts?

Reveille 3

There's a big red sack full of holiday gifts for you at the library. Come and get 'em!

At Fresh City Life, we know this is a busy time of year for folks. And sometimes we'd all just like to slow down and enjoy the season. 

We've put together a couple concerts so you can do just that. Please join us for these special events:

Over the river and through the woods -- to Katie's house we go

Katie Holmes as April

Katie Holmes hosts us for a memorable Thanksgiving dinner in Pieces of April. Fresh City Life serves it up with a slice of pie.

A relaxing get-together for knitters and other crafters, KnitFlix meets once a month in the Fresh City Lounge for an eclectic mix of classic and contemporary films. Guests may bring favorite beverages and nibbles, and have been known to comment on the film while it plays - KnitFlix is like going to a friend’s house to watch a film. Grab your knitting and let’s go to the movies!

For November, we continue a tradition of showing a film highlighting the most American of all holidays -- and will dish it up with a slice of pumpkin pie, if you've got room for dessert! 

The Search Continues For Intelligent Life

The Search For Signs of Intelligent Life In The Universe

Jane Wagner's beautiful and funny play about the big questions.

Lily Tomlin helped to create a character written by Jane Wagner who believes she is communicating with higher beings from outer space. Tomlin won a Tony Award for her portrayal of multiple characters in the show, The Search For Signs of Intelligent Life In The Universe. The show gets a revival at Jefferson County Open School this week.

I'm attending tonight and tomorrow night. Hope you can join me. Here's the details for our special Fresh City Life search:

Guess What's Coming To Dinner

Well, Thanksgiving dinner, anyway.

Look, when you are on a road trip and you see a sign that says, “Two-headed Squirrel -- Turn Rght at the Next Exit” – you turn right at the next exit! If someone is making turducken and you're invited -- go!

For the Love of Beer: Women Pioneers in Brewing

Whole Foods Market and Fresh City Life present a free screening of The Love of Beer, the 2011 documentary spotlighting women in the beer biz.

From The Love of Beer: "When someone thinks of a brewer, they probably don't picture a petite woman with red pigtails. But with Tonya Cornett's amazing beers and growing collection of medals, things may change. From farm to consumption, women are fighting their way to become some of the most influential people in the craft beer world. Based in the Pacific NW, this documentary follows these inspirational women as they struggle to end stereotypes, handle their rising fame, and raise families in a 21 and over lifestyle.

Sending out a search party -- for signs of intelligent life

Sometimes, life finds you. Sometimes, you have to go out and look for it. Join Fresh City Life for a field trip to search for signs of intelligent life at Jefferson County Open School.

If the Mayans were wrong and life goes on -- then the quest for a meaningful life will continue as well. And here's a great way to re-ignite your journey:
