In Case of Emergency
The garage door of an actual private home becomes a curtain, rising on Meredith, a single woman who has filled her garage with supplies for any emergency. It’s gotten a little out of hand, which is why she’s hired Alex to help her get organized. But neither the supplies nor the prepping expert can prepare her for the personal disasters that her younger sister brings home, on a day when the city seems set to go up in flames.

National Pastime

The Baseball Reliquary and the Allendale Branch Library present “The National Pastime,” a musical presentation by Ross Altman, on Saturday, June 25, at 2:00 p.m. Baseball is a metaphor for life. It has a larger-than-life hero (Babe Ruth); it has a flawed hero (Pete Rose); it has a patriotic hero (Ted Williams); it has hubris (Roger Clemens); it has a colossal failure (Casey at the Bat); it has a symbol of America’s greatest tragedy – racism – and our determination to overcome it (Jackie Robinson); it has comedy (Who’s on First?); it has poetry (Jim Murray); it has a tragic disease (Lou Gehrig); it has mental illness (Jimmy Piersall); it has a cautionary tale (Mickey Mantle); it has a song (Take Me Out to the Ball Game); and above all it has a history.

Artful Deceiver
The Artful Deceiver combines unusual props, imaginative scenarios, and masterful sleight of hand to evoke wonder. For example, he brings an “invisible bee” to life in one of his routines.

Urban Plates is a place where you can feel at home. The food is fresh and simple but with enough options to satisfy a variety of palates – they even have a kids’ menu. The outdoor fire pit, communal table and and cozy seats will make you want to linger over your meal. “That’s why we have a community table here – we want people to meet their neighbors, "[Eating together] is a way we connect with each other," said Chef Robert Buycks. The market style restaurant offers solid staples like BBQ Turkey Meatloaf and Oven Baked Salmon as well as vegan and gluten-free choices like the Kale Coconut Tofu salad and the Vegetable Curry.

Music on the Main
A Descanso favorite, Betty Bryant returns for her fifth appearance at the Gardens. Her music is fun, bluesy, and infused with her wry sense of humor.
