This week: mountains to be climbed, dances to be danced, and bells to be jingled


Here’s a sampling of what you have to look forward to this week on the PDD Calendar.

Lonnie Dupree is set to attempt to summit Mt. McKinley in January, which has never been done before. You can meet this hero slash mad man at the UMD Planetarium on Tuesday.

It’s been said that “talking about art is like dancing about architecture.” Well you can see UMD folk dancing about art in the Tweed Museum on Wednesday and Thursday and then… you can talk about it. Perfecto.

Well, it’s snowing out and we haven’t even finished our Halloween candy so, of course, Christmas events must begin. (Insert curmudgeonly grumble here.)

Fa la flipping la.

By the way, revisit our new Christmas tag to see a list of all similarly festive happenings in the area.

So what are you doing this week? Can we tag along? Any upcoming events that you want to promote? Let us know!

Hello fellow film nuts:  a late breaking development..."The Master" is opening at Zinema on November 30!!!!!!!!!  YES!!!
