El Niño or not, you knew temperatures would hit freezing at some point, and that point is expected early tomorrow morning. Even if we don’t have a fugitive lurking in the cornfields anymore, you’ll probably want to grab the last few tomatoes and start planning to spend a little more of your free time indoors.
Old World Wisconsin‘s Halloween Dinner Theater productions have become very popular. This year’s events are held tonight at 7, tomorrow evening at 5:30 and 8:00, and Sunday evening at 5:30. You start off with a buffet dinner of frightening food like “Macabre Beef Bourguignon” and “Screaming Sage and Ham Stuffed Chicken Breast.” Following that, take a lamplight stroll to Caldwell Hall for the performance — featuring dramatizations of four classic Edgar Allan Poe stories: The Raven, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Pit and the Pendulum and The Tell-Tale Heart. This is scary stuff, not intended for kids 10 and under.
Kenosha’s popular HarborMarket has pulled up stakes for the season. Starting Saturday, the WinterMarket is held indoors at the Rhode Center for the Arts (514 56th Street). The market is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and in addition to over 20 assorted vendors, you can enjoy the music of guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Annie B.
Francis Albert Sinatra was born on December 12, 1915. Saturday night at 7:30, you can celebrate his birth a couple of months early with a Centennial Celebration featuring Sinatra’s hits, led by vocalist (and newbie Instagram photographer) Steve Lippia performing with the Kenosha Symphony Orchestra. The concert takes place in the Reuther Central High School auditorium at the corner of Sheridan Road and 58th Street in Kenosha.
