Eight Great Things to Do This Weekend – 4/18/19

ONE: Join the Methuen Ballet Ensemble at the Firehouse Center for the Arts on Saturday at 7 p.m. for an elegant evening of artistry and grace as they present “An Evening with Methuen Ballet Ensemble” featuring excerpts from Swan Lake.

TWO: Photographer Elaine Seidel will show off her new exhibit, “Look Up, Down and All Around,” at the Arts League of Lowell’s Greenwald Gallery from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursday. The exhibit’s name is no joke – you really do need to look up to see the images Seidel has hung on the ceiling!

THREE: The Price Is Right Live is the hit interactive stage show that gives eligible individuals the chance to hear their names called so they can “come on down” to win. The show is coming to the Lowell Memorial Auditorium on Thursday at 7:30 p.m.

SIX: That Hole Thing at Mill No. 5 on Saturday will combine two of our favorite things: doughnuts and vinyl records.

FOUR: Illusionist Rick Thomas has completed five world tours covering over 50 countries, from sold out performances at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace to headlining the Sydney Opera House in Australia. See him live on Thursday from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at Cary Hall.

FIVE: Lowell’s Annual Celebration of Khmer New Year will kick off at Lowell Senior Center on Saturday from 8:30 to 11 a.m. The initial event will be followed by a parade at 11:00 a.m. to continue the celebration at Roberto Clemente Park between noon and 5 p.m.

SIX: Shop the area’s finest vinyl record dealers & doughnut makers at Mill No. 5’s That Hole Thing on Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. Vendors include RRRecords.com, Surface Noise Vinyl Shop and Donut Shack Doughnuts.

EIGHT: Belgian waffles are just one of the things on the brunch menu this Sunday at the Copper Door Restaurant.

SEVEN: The Wood Engravers’ Network Third Triennial Exhibition is the third juried, traveling exhibit featuring 64 engravings by 37 artists from New England and throughout the United States as well as Canada, Ireland and Belgium. Visit the opening reception at the Museum of Printing from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday.

EIGHT: Brunch and jazz isn’t a bad way to start Easter Sunday (or any Sunday, for that matter). Make it happen this weekend at the Copper Door Restaurant. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., they’ll have tasty selections such as bacon cheddar quiche and Belgian waffles, along with the sweet sounds of live jazz provided by Nate Comp.
