Groove on Grove is that awesome live music event that happens every Wednesday during the warm season at Grove Street Plaza. Different bands and musical acts are featured each week.

I used to go religiously, but this year has been hyper busy. Anyway, a shout out for their event tonight (8/17):

The Lineup:
Walter Parks
The Bottomless Mimosas
Bible Gun

Beyond the music this Wednesday, the Artist & Maker Market is back!

Let’s just hope the rain is minimally invasive;)

Get your groove on Grove,

Before you peruse the Farmer’s Market this Sunday at Riverview Fisk Park in the Heights, why not get your free fitness on? Jenna Firshein is leading a Zumba® demo while the weather’s still perfect for outdoor workouts.

The class starts at 11:30 am and lasts approximately 45 minutes. FB info here. All ages and all fitness levels welcome. Let your friends know.

Visit Jenna’s website to inquire about hiring her for a Zumba® fitness party, private training, or a corporate event.

If you miss your fix and can’t make it to one of Jenna’s other classes, there is a new studio in the Heights with Zumba® classes twice a week, which I’ll be writing about in a few days. Stay tuned.

 

Get your dance on,
