Buy Books and Learn to Dance This Weekend

Posted By on Fri, Jan 2, 2009 at 4:00 AM

Got the post-holiday blues? Cure your ills by spending some money on yourself for a change. You can start by picking up some collectible and hard-to-find book titles at the Overton Park Antiquarian Book Fair on Saturday. The Parkview Retirement Community at 1914 Poplar is holding the annual sale from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Though the holidays are over, Christmas art shows and plays are still running. One of the most relevant exhibits, "New Deal Holiday Greeting Cards from Indiana State University," for today's harsh economic times remains up through January 11th at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens. The show features Christmas cards created by otherwise jobless Americans by the Works Progress Administration in 1935.

In case you missed any of the larger-than-life educational screenings at the IMAX Theatre last year, the theatre is giving viewers a second chance during its annual film festival. Catch Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs, Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure, Hurricane on the Bayou, The Living Sea, and Everest all day on Saturday and Sunday.

Support local music and ice-cold pitchers of Pabst Blue Ribbon at The P&H Cafe on Saturday as experimental folk rockers The Warble take the stage. Other acts include J. Dorothy Jones and Les Chouettes. The show begins at 10 p.m.

Kick start your New Year's resolution to stay fit during weekly dance classes by USA Dance. Each Sunday in January, you'll practice the waltz and the cha-cha. Classes run from 6 to 8:15 p.m.
