#ygkChallenge: Go Out

ygkchallenge, live music, live theatre, local arts, Kingston, OntarioThe #ygkchallenge is an ongoing series where we dare you to be different, resolve to be better, and or do something awesome in support of our beloved community. Each week, Kingstonist establishes a new, ambitious or quirky goal, encouraging you to step out of your comfort zone and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston (and the world) a slightly better place to live, work and play.

This week’s #ygkchallenge encourages you to:

Take in some live entertainment. I don’t know about you, but I spent a good part of the holidays in my pjs, watching Netflix and hanging out by the fire. Getting back into the swing of things is always tough after a stretch of time off, and Tuesday’s snow day didn’t help. Whether you were off over the holidays or not, there are a lot of us who just don’t want to step outside at this time of year. It’s cold, it’s wet, it’s icy and it’s dark. Just seems better to hide under a blanket until spring arrives. However! The arts in Kingston are not hibernating at all and there is a ton to do over the next few weeks. This week we challenge you to go out and take in some live entertainment. Enjoy some local theatre by picking up some tickets to Blue Canoe’s Peter & The Starcatcher at The Baby Grand, the world premier of One Last Night With Mata Hari by Queen’s own Craig Walker and John Burge at The Isabel, or Queen’s Musical Theatre’s Avenue Q; hit the dance floor at The Grad Club with New Swears tomorrow night, or take in some classical music performed by Queen’s music faculty on Sunday at The Isabel. That’s just this week! In upcoming weeks we’ll see the kick off to The Kingston Jazz Society’s Winter Concert Series; live shows featuring USS, Hannah Georgas and The Mahones and a Kingston Symphony concert. There is no shortage of live, and in many cases, local entertainment and you can find more on our events calendar. So, while it’s nice to stay in, get out there and support the arts in ygk!

Join us in completing this week’s #ygkchallenge by liking it on Facebook and/or re-Tweeting it on Twitter. By liking and sharing, you’re not only committing to doing something great, but you’re also helping us spread the word and hopefully encouraging others to participate.
