Mike’s Garage Band has made quite a name for itself in Brunswick County, NC – a good name. It’s a great band whose members play for free and donate all proceeds from their playing, and your fun dancing, to worthy causes. This Saturday, November 21, is no exception as they present A 60s/Oldies Dance Party at the Brunswick Community College South Brunswick Islands Center in Carolina Shores, NC, with all proceeds going to the Brunswick County Literacy Council. The cost is only $10 per person and reservations and payment can be made at: http://www.bcliteracy.org. For information, call: (910) 754-7323.
At 7:30 PM on Friday, November 20, you can attend a Star Party at the Ingram Planetarium in Sunset Beach, NC. You can bring your own telescope or use the planetarium’s telescopes. Hopeful viewing includes the moon, of course, Orion, Canis Major and Canis Minor and more. The rain date is Saturday, November 21 at 7 PM. For more information, go to http://www.museumplanetarium.org or call: (910) 575-0033.
