Interesting Events – Poptopia, Home Alone, Miracle on Monroe & Moreby The Biscuit Staff on November 26, 2019
‘Tis the season of events in Charlotte. Okay, we hear you, it’s always the season of events in Charlotte. Once you wake up from your tryptophan-induced haze on Friday morning, here are some of our favorites coming up this week and next.
“Home Alone” with the Charlotte Symphony – Nov. 29 at 7:30pm @ Belk Theater
FREE TICKET ALERT! This Friday night, the Charlotte Symphony is performing John Williams’ beloved score from “Home Alone” while screening the movie … and you have a chance to win tickets! Plus, this gave Biscuit-maker Matt Olin a chance to catch up with his old pal, Devin Ratray, on Skype. Devin’s seasoned acting career includes playing “Buzz” in the Home Alone movies. You can watch Matt’s conversation with Devin here.
In the video, Devin asks a question: “What murderous title does Buzz give the Old Man Marley who lives next door?” If you know the answer, email firstname.lastname@example.org right away for a chance to get a pair of tickets to the show this Friday. Winners will be announced on Wednesday morning. You can buy tickets for the show here.
Poptopia Holidays – Dec. 4-7 @ 101 North Tryon Street
Shop till ya’ Pop! If you don’t get your holiday shopping this Friday, don’t worry. Next week Poptopia will be taking over the atrium of 101 N Tryon Street with 14 of the Charlotte area’s favorite shops to bring some holiday cheer. While you knock people off your Christmas list, you can also enjoy light fare from Stoke, beer and wine from Assorted Wine Table, photo moments, live music, and giveaways. For more information, click here.
Here are a few more events to get you out of the house (… since we’re pretty sure you’ll be sick of your guests by 10:28AM on Friday).
Most of us will be stuffed this Thanksgiving weekend, so let’s help others be too.
