Storytelling In The Snug With Tennessee Rick Elliott (8:00 pm - 10:00 pm)

Sunday, May 24th at 8 pm - Storytelling in the Snug with TENNESSEE RICK ELLIOTT

Join in with Rick Elliott, an authentic Appalachian wordslinger, for an evening of Storytelling in the Snug! “No story begins ‘Once upon a time…’ and very few wind up ‘…happily ever after”, but you’ll recognize a lot of your own life experiences here. There’s nothing you couldn’t say in church, but the stories are best suited to those 13 and older. Rick will go for about 75 minutes or so, or until the police arrive – whichever happens first!” ~www.TNRick.net

There will be NO COVER CHARGE for this wonderful event, but we will "pass the hat" for Rick that evening.

**PLEASE NOTE** Seating in the Snug is very limited. Come early to reserve your seats, have a meal in our dining room, and then retire with your drinks to the coziness of the Snug for storytelling!! Reservations for dinner and storytelling or for storytelling alone.

Michelle Areyzaga returns to the Evanston Symphony Orchestra, led by Music Director Lawrence Eckerling, in Richard Strauss’ final work, his beautiful tribute to the soprano voice the Four Last Songs. Brahms’ Third Symphony is a cornerstone of the concert repertoire, with an opening theme expressing his personal motto “free but happy” and an instantly memorable folksong-like third movement.
