The traditional holiday pops concert at the Star Plaza tonight and on Saturday, a Michigan beer party celebrating The Michigan Beer Film in Three Oaks.
Tonight Holiday Pops at the Star Plaza Theatre: If there is a concert guaranteed to sell out the 3400 seats at the Merrillville venue this is it! This year’s concert will feature the symphony chorus, but also Crown Point’s renowned Eisenhower Elementary School Choir. The Holiday Pops concert is always a blend of contemporary and classic favorites so it is the ideal family event. And yes, Santa will be there. Along with some folks from the Food Bank of Northwest Indiana who will be on hand to take donations of non-perishable food items. The concert begins at 7:30. For details about the event contact NISO at 219-836-0525, ext.200.
Michigan Beer Fest at Acorn in Three Oaks on Saturday: Tickets are $2 cheaper in advance for the beer party beginning at 4:30 pm (ET).Tickets at the door are $15 and cover the movie only. If you want to drink fresh local craft beers on tap it will cost $5 more and $9 will buy all the Georgie's pizza you can eat. A Q-and-A with The Michigan Beer Film movie producer Kevin Romeo and some local brewery owners including Scott Sullivan of Greenbush Brewing Co. in Sawyer---a craft brewery that has taken the region by storm--- will follow the screening. As Laura Bell, daughter of the owner of Bell’s Brewery, says, Romeo’s film is a reality-check about the business of brewing. In her words: “Making beer is not all glamour, glory and riches; it's hard work." For more on the movie visit http://mibeerfilm.com
