Bead Town Opening Night is January 6: Twelfth Night, also known as Little Christmas, is the day the Wise Men supposedly arrived in Bethlehem, the perfect evening for a pre-Mardi Gras soiree in Miller Beach. The main installation and kickoff party at the Marshall J. Gardner Center for the Arts in Miller, hosted by the Methodist Hospitals Foundation and the Miller Beach Arts & Creative District, will be held from 7 to 10 pm Monday. The reception is open to the public. Admission is $25 and includes beer, wine, champagne, hors d’oeuvres and potluck dishes.

There is another party for Stephen Wanger next Saturday, January 11th at the Rutsen-Rogge house on N. Vigo in Miller. Stephen Wanger is an interesting guy, but you want to see the house too. We featured it in Shore last year. Jog your memory with a peak at the article. Admission, which benefits the Miller Arts district, is $50. Tickets are limited so RSVP by January 8 to Karren Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bev’s Second Season Ball February 1: Once again this wintertime gala will be held at the Four Winds Casino Resort, Silver Creek Event Center in New Buffalo. The fundraiser fior the New Buffalo Business Association is economical---$80 per person---has excellent food, terrific live music (and dancing) and my most favorite silent auction of the year.
