Today is St. Patrick’s Day and to celebrate there’s a Ceili Irish Dance at St. John’s Episcopal Church, a family friendly party at Clyde Iron, a not family friendly party at Dubh Linn and other events. What are you doing today to celebrate? Let everyone know in the comments.

Yoga North is starting a bunch of new five and ten week classes this week, including Beginning Yoga starting today and The Chemistry of Joy starting on Wednesday.

Renegade opens its new rock musical, Next to Normal, at the Teatro Zuccone this Thursday and it runs three weekends.

The Cabin Fever Bluegrass Festival is back at the Inn on Lake Superior and runs Friday through Sunday.

Just announced: Willie Nelson is playing Big Top Chautauqua in Bayfield on Aug. 10. Tickets go on sale Monday, March 24.

Please God, allow Lyle Lovett's tour bus to also disappear along with his horse. Let them both be martyred together so that he may never again write songs about how it's okay for you to touch his woman, but not his horse. Children don't need that kind of confusion in this complex world Lord.
