Two fun things to do this week

UPDATE: Oops!  My mistake: A Novel Affair takes place on Thursday, not Saturday!



If you're as happy as I am to see that giant warm circle in the sky (I forget its name), then step out of your house/hibernation cave/panic room and check out these neat events this Saturday!

From 12-3 p.m., head to Mill River Park for the Sakura Matsuri Cherry Blossom festival!  You may recall the dustup over the removal of a number of cherry trees when the makeover of Mill River Park began.  Some people were complaining that they loved seeing the trees in bloom as they drove past the park.  Now's their chance to actually go into the park and see the trees up close!

Once you're done gallavanting in the park, it's a short walk to the Ferguson Library, so you can enjoy A Novel Affair, a food tasting/music/auction event to benefit everybody's favorite downtown booklender.  It takes place from 6-9 p.m. and features food from such local favorites as Barcelona Greenwich, Coromandel, DiMare Pastry Shop, Napa & Co., Remo's Brick Oven Pizza Company, and Tabouli Grill!

PS: Looking ahead to June, the Avon will play host to a certain wacky police academy graduate from the 1980s...to be followed by drinks and dancing at The Blue Oyster, of course.
