ANOTHER COLD WEEKEND IN THE FORECAST, but that doesn't mean there's nothing to do....
THE LEGENDARY ANIMALS, FEATURING ERIC Burdon will play live on the Kent Stage Friday night at 7pm. I'm sure you'll hear all their greats, like "House Of The Rising Sun" and "We Gotta Get Outta This Place", but you'll also hear songs from Burdon latest solo album. Get information and tickets at www.thekentstage.com.
THE FUNNY STOP COMEDY CLUB IN Cuyahoga Falls features headliner Thea Vidale on Friday and Saturday night. Two shows both nights, and you can get information on this and future shows at www.funnystop.com.
FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT, how about a ride on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad. With the snow and ice, riding through (as opposed to hiking through) the park wouldn't be a bad idea. Trains run twice each day this weekend and you can get tickets and information at www.CVSR.com or call 800-468-4070.
THE RUBBER CITY ROLLERGIRLS ARE BACK for another season! The home opener happens this Saturday night at 6pm at the John S Knight Center in downtown Akron. Tickets and information at www.rubbercityrollergirls.com or call 800-838-3006.
SATURDAY NIGHT AT EJ THOMAS HALL, Gospel will meet symphony at 7:30pm. The 200 member strong Gospel Meets Symphony Choir will join with the Akron Symphony Orchestra to create a sound unlike anything you've ever heard. Tickets and more information at www.akronsymphony.org.
FINALLY, THIS IS THE FINAL WEEKEND for "Race" at the Weathervane Playhouse in the valley. Get tickets and information at www.weathervaneplayhouse.com.
JOIN ME TOMORROW MORNING FROM 9am until noon on 640 WHLO. By the way, the WKDD - Akron Childrens Hospital "Have a heart, Do your part" radiothon is going on both today and tomorrow at the hospital downtown. Just tune to 98.1 FM for all the fun. JIM
