Sure, no one is all that enthused about Tuesday – it’s stuck on the boring side of the week, with no one for company but lame old Monday.
Super awesome fun times aren’t just going to fall into your lap on days like today…. You’ve got to go out there and make them happen!
There’s no better way to do that than by checking out any (or all) of these events going on around the city today – or you could just mope around at home feeling sorry for yourself, it’s a free country after all.
What: Looking for some inspiration, a place to write that isn’t your kitchen table, or simply some guidance on a writing project? For only $5 you can join White Space Writers every Tuesday morning and receive a work space, unlimited coffee, accessibility to writing resources (aka they will look over a piece you’re working on) and a writing prompt, if that is what you’re interested in. Plus you might make a new creative friend or two, which is priceless!
What: Did you know what Calgary was once known as the booze, brothel, and gambling capital of the Canadian West? Join Kimberly Williams, Associate Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies at MRU for an educational talk on this controversial time in Calgarian history as she introduces you to a few of the rowdy women whose clients ranged from NWMP to the “Mavericks” of the pioneering past.
