We're Planning a BIG Saturday.

March 15, 2010 | 826 Blog Post

Do you have plans this Saturday? If you do, you’ll want to break them. If you don’t, we’ve taken care of everything for you. Join us this Saturday morning and night for two uniquely fun and fabulous events!

Saturday morning, we’re planning a little get-together to celebrate our mascot’s anniversary. Colby the service dog has been helping out people in our community for five years! Join us for snacks and activities (aimed at five to ten year olds). You’ll want to stop by if for no other reason than to pet Colby, who is, hands down, the sweetest dog in the world. I’m pretty sure she’ll be fresh from the dog-o-mat and ready to snuggle! For more information, click here. This event is free and open to the public! It happens here at 826michigan from 10 to 11:30am on Saturday.

THEN you have the afternoon to yourself. The weather’s supposed to be lovely, so may I suggest walking around downtown and eating outdoors. At about 6:45, though, you should hustle back to 826michigan for this month’s installment of the Great Lakes, Great Times Reading Series. This month is, well, Really Big. Dan Chaon (!!!! — I sort of can’t type his name without parenthetically putting in a bunch of exclamation points, as it turns out), Laura van den Berg, and Christian TeBordo will read from their illustrious bodies of work. Click here for more information on each writer. The reading starts around 7pm, is free to the public (although it should be noted, this is not a family friendly event), AND is a great way to start your Saturday night, promise.

Have a great week, and I hope to see you at one (or both) of these things this weekend!
