From a meet & greet to great market meats

Posted By
COVINGTON, Ky. - Anything after Monday night’s revelry might seem a bit of a letdown, but don’t panic. There’s an interesting weekend ahead in Covington.
 
Among the agenda: A first look at the new City Commission, the return of the Covington Farmers Market, a last chance to sign up for Baker Hunt’s classes, a beer tap party, and a heavy metal album drop - not mention a free concert featuring a bunch of brass among the stained glass
 
Oh, and then there’s the gamut of yoga (meaning you can try out a basic, introductory skillshare-type of session or the sophisticated, acrobatic class with a partner).
 
Swearing in ‘the electeds’
You elected them, now come meet them.
 
The four newly elected members of the Covington City Commission will be ceremonially sworn in on Friday evening at The Carnegie. Featuring two returnees, a name from the past, and a newcomer to politics, the four Commissioners will join Mayor Joe Meyer to make up the 2019-2020 Commission.
 
The event includes a short ceremony and a meet and greet with appetizers and a cash bar. Info, HERE.

Farmers Market is back
If the words “Farmers Market” and “winter” seem incongruous - that is, not compatible - then you haven’t been to the Covington Farmers Market.
 
This Saturday, the Market kicks off its 2019 season with cool weather produce, eggs, market meats, hand-crafted goods, bread and pastries, cold-pressed juices, sugar scrubs, CSA signup opportunities, and much more.
 
Check it all out - plus your Covington Farmers Market swag - in The Roebling Room at Smoke Justis. Info, HERE.
 
Learn from the experts
Do you or your children want to learn how to paint or draw (oil, pastels, colored pencils, acrylics), do pottery, design fashion, sew, draw cartoon characters, build with Legos, clay, play guitar, knit, weave, take pictures, write poetry, do yoga, etc. etc.?
 
Then sign up now, because winter classes for both children and adults (separately) start Monday at Baker Hunt Art & Cultural Center and run through March 2.
 
Registration and info, HERE.
 
Brass & stained glass
You like brass? Free concerts? Stained glass windows?
 
Seven Hills Brass is collaborating with Greg Schaffer for “An Epiphany Epilogue” at the beautiful Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption on Sunday. Info, HERE.
 
The gamut of yoga
“If you can breathe, you can do yoga.”
 
That’s what organizers are saying about “Yoga Confidence” (skillshare session) on Saturday hosted by change.yoga and Rooted Yoga. Info and signup, HERE.
 
On the other hand, Sunday’s “FLY: Introduction to AcroYoga” is a partner activity combining yoga, healing arts, and acrobatics. Learn spotting, safety precautions, calibrations, progressions, shapes, counterbalances and therapeutics.
 
Info and cost, HERE.
 
Unfiltered, not unplugged
The guest of honor is Haven Hefeweizen, or is it Jess Lamb?
 
Either way, Braxton Brewing Co. is hosting its Haven Tapping Party & Can Release on Friday evening (you know, that unfiltered seasonal wheat beer) ... and since it’s the first Friday of the month, there’s live music, this month from Jess Lamb and The Factory.
 
Info, HERE.
 
Get to know your electronic device
Finally, help for the technologically challenged among us.
 
If you received a tablet, iPad or E-Reader for the holidays and don’t know how to use it, come to this class Saturday afternoon to get an introduction to using your electronic device.
 
It’s at the Kenton County Library at 1 p.m. Info, HERE.
 
Free matinees
If your school-age children are driving you nuts, take them to the Kenton County Public Library on Saturday afternoon for “’90s Saturdays,” where they can watch two kid-friendly sports movies from the 1990s.
 
Info, HERE.
