Early week events preview

After the holiday weekend, it's time to get back into the gym to work off my holiday leftovers and prep for Christmas? While you get mentally prepped for another work week, here's a look at a couple of early week events.

Tired of Turkey? Here are a few  Sunday Brunch suggestions:
Dogwood Southern Table & Bar - I'm well overdue for a visit. I remember the Maw Maw Biscuits, but the menu has expanded and looks incredible.

Bistro La Bon - You can't go wrong at one of Sip & Play's favorite spots. Great brunch buffet, and I typically don't do buffets. Ooh, I order the pecan pie for Thanksgiving and it was ridiculously good. 

Block & Grinder - Don't miss the duck hash and the Bloody Mary.

Charlie Sheen’s announcement will hopefully bring renewed attention to the virus that still disproportionately affects Black and Latino women. The Voices Project tells the story of everyday people living with or affected by HIV/AIDs in Mecklenburg County. These are our neighbors and friends. Their story doesn’t make national headlines, but they are just as powerful. 6 p.m. reception, 7 p.m. showtime. Wells Fargo Auditorium, 430 S. Tryon St. Free. Details.


How time flies! Sip & Play's favorite tree-huggers, Sustain Charlotte, celebrates its five-year anniversary. The celebration will stories and photos showcasing past events, projects, and accomplishments. Food from Twisted Eats food truck. Bikers, walkers and other sustainable travelers get a free, small first pour of beer. Wooden Robot Brewery, 1440 S Tryon St. Details.

I love this concept on the comedy open mic. Remember the Apollo’s Sandman Simms? Well, Santa will be checking the audience to determine who gets the boot and who gets to stay at this comedy open mic at Bad Santa Comedy Show presented by CrowdPlay.Events. 7 p.m., The Comedy Zone Charlotte, 900 Nc Music Factory Blvd, Ste B3. $15. Details.
