We are getting down to the holiday wire, so why not take a break and make some memories for this holiday season.  Your choices include two events on Saturday, December 18th.  The first is the December Edition of the Unity Temple Coffee-House and Open Mic at Unity Temple, 875 Lake St.  Doors open at 7:30p, Open Mic (acoustic only) at 8p, and at 9pm it's "Big Eyed Rabbit" performing for your pleasure with their songs, poems, banjo music and more.  This is really a great monthly event in a magnificent venue.  It's low-key, high energy entertainment.

Also on Saturday night from 8 - 10pm, Lido's Cafe, 122 N. Marion St. invites you to hear Art Harrison's All Stars perform.  There's no cover for the entertainment and Lido's menu has something for everyone. So do something fun this weekend.
