Ethnic Expressions

It’s March 1st and Friday, so you know what that means: First Friday in downtown South Bend. The theme tonight is “Ethnic Expressions.” From Latin flair at Chicory Cafe to Irish folktales by the fireplace at Fiddler’s Hearth and Flamenco dance demonstrations at The Music Village, you will find diverse culture all around you. As usual, there is much to do downtown. I recommend you check out DTSB’s website for more info, grab the fam and head on out. By the way, be sure to check out the marquee at The State tonight. Then let me know what you learned.

Who Doesn’t Love a Treasure Hunt?

What comes to mind when you think “treasure hunt?” Are you whisked back to your childhood and those fun treasure hunts at special parties? Or perhaps recall a team building activity at work? Or are you a modern treasure hunter that uses geocaching?

Whatever comes to mind, we can all agree that a treasure hunt is an adventure. And who doesn’t love an adventure? Well, be prepared to enjoy a local adventure with the Shop Local Treasure Hunt on November 24, 2012.

You’ve heard me talk about the benefits of shopping, dining, supporting local businesses and services. You know that more money stays in our area when we do that. So, some smart people (spearheaded by Willow Wetherall and working in collaboration with other organizers and DTSB) have decided to combine the shop local theme with a treasure hunt.

Brilliant, right? I know!  I just LOVE ideas that highlight the awesomeness that is South Bend with new and innovative ways to experience them. So let’s show our support of local businesses (as well as these hardworking volunteers) by taking our feet to the streets next Saturday. If you can’t be there physically, plan to engage online. Let’s keep cool ideas coming!

Fabulous First Friday Fun!

There is much to do tonight in the Bend, so grab some friends and head downtown for the monthly First Friday activity: Art Alive! There is “Artists in Action” where artists will be creating custom art, in addition to a community art project and an ARTitecture hunt. It sounds like fun! Plus, there are so many great places to grab dinner downtown. Have you tried the new Cafe Navarre? Did I mention that there is music in the KeyBank plaza? For more about this DTSB event that begins at 5pm, check out their website:

Now if  the downtown festivities aren’t quite up your alley, then consider heading over to Eddy Commons for their Kickoff Concert Block Party. There is live music and, of course, all those dining establishments ready for you and your party. This event begins at 7pm.

What are your plans for tonight? Share your ideas here…

Friday Fun in Downtown South Bend

We are truly lucky to have a myriad of things to do in downtown South Bend, from Coveleski Stadium to South Bend Civic Theatre … and everything in-between. But we’re even more fortunate to have a group that organizes a monthly themed activity. How many communities can boast of such a thing? Seriously, how cool is that?!

This Friday is a First Friday, so don’t miss the fun downtown. From DTSB’s All Things Sustainable to the Sunburst activities, there will be plenty for the whole family to see and do. So grab your kids or a friend and get out the door Friday. For more info, check out DTSB’s website:

Raise your hand if you’ve participated in DTSB’s First Fridays before. Or if you’re planning to join in this Friday. Hope to see you there!
