Area Activities - First Week of November

Okay folks, I need your help this week!  What do you know about that is going on in the area this weekend?  I have a short list below, but I need your help!  Post your activity in the comments section below.

What I know about:

Friday & Saturday - Downtown Art Association (237 W. 3rd Street)
Artist Galleries every Fri & Sat evenings.  I haven't checked this place out, but have been meaning to as it looks really cool (I'll have a post about it later this week).  I think it has potential for a great date or a night out with a girlfriend - go and check out local artists' work on display, then end the evening at the Potter's House for a scoop of ice cream & cup of coffee!

  1. If you are in the market for a great meal, you won't want to miss two things:

    #1(Swayzee UMC Chicken and Noodle lunch from 11-1) in Swayzee Saturday, November 6th.

    #2 Herbst UMC chicken fry. It is soooo good. It is from 4-7 I believe in Herbst, which is halfway between Marion and Swayzee.
