Deep Freeze Fest, and New Year's

Hey everyone, hope you had a lovely Christmas! If you're not partied out yet, make sure to check out Deep Freeze on Alberta Avenue, and Sugar Swing's sweet New Year's bash.

Deep Freeze

This festival, happening Jan 8-9 2011, ushers in the new year with olde school style. With a nod at old winter festival traditions, Deep Freeze presents fun stuff like street hockey, ice sculpture, and tobogganing. To heat up the evenings there are live performances of folk music from all over the world, exotic treats like iced maple syrup on a stick, and steaming Bailey's served at the ice bar -- in mugs made of ice!

And of course, Deep Freeze has an art market. Please stop by and see what I've been working on! More info about the festival here.

And Also -- New Year's Funk Party

Sugar Swing Dance Club (which is run by hubby) is having a Swing and Soul Party on New Year's Eve! So runaround Sue, hit the road Jack, and bring that soul down to the Crestwood Community Hall for some good vibrations. All folks - young, old, teens, tweens are welcome to attend. Don't worry about not being able to dance: this is a lighthearted, groovy night.

The evening will feature a delicious soul food dinner, bar, lesson, prizes, and dancing to some sweet and soulful tunes of the 1960's. Make sure to come decked out in your best 60's threads. More details here.

As Sushi Papercraft is all about making fun books for your thoughts, it's fitting to mention the The Book Lovers Christmas Sale happening this Saturday, December 4. It will be at the Stanley A. Milner Library (Centennial Room – the big room just across the hall from the theatre), from 12 noon to 5 pm.

This event will bring a bunch of Alberta authors together and give you a chance to meet them, buy some books, and get 'em signed. There will also be some locally-crafted goodies there, like stationary, bookmarks and notebooks (including Sushi ones). When you buy any of these particular items, proceeds go to the Writers Guild of Alberta.
