The Look Ahead: Monte Pittman, Beer for Bark, Glitter & Glitz, ARC Workshops, and El Clasico

What a day… Just when it seemed like it was all but conquered, work reared its ugly head. So much for my productive-unproductive time. That’s ok, because it seems like all the good stuff kicks off on Thursday anyway. Take a look at what we’ve found. You won’t be disappointed… probably.

The man from Longview, TX has had quite the ride to the spotlight. On Thursday afternoon he will be performing at Cactus Music for all you lunch CD shoppers. Later that evening he’ll take the stage at House of Blues’ Peacock Room. Doors open at 9:00PM with the show starting at 9:30PM and an asking price of $10 per ticket. Then again, you could just take the free lunchtime serenade and pick up a copy of Pain, Love and Destiny. Check out Monte Pittman’s website for a taste of his music if you’re not already familiar.

Too early to tell you about one of the epic showdowns in La Liga? I think not. You may as well start preparing today for the match between Real Madrid and Barcelona. To get you in the soccer spirit, Bar Munich is always showing soccer matches from way across yonder. With the Dynamo season closed out, there’s nothing to do but turn our eyes toward the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A.
