Horcruxes & Hunchbacks

COVINGTON, Ky. - Question: How many words are in the seventh book of the Harry Potter series?
Answer: 198,227.
Well, that’s what wiki says - and if turns out to be one of the questions in Friday night’s Harry Potter trivia contest at Keystone Bar & Grill, well ... you owe us a sandwich. Or a beer.
That’s one event going on in Covington this weekend (tho truth be told, it seems kind of a light schedule to us. Must be cold, dark January season.)
The next day and right next door, there’s the weekly Farmer Market. And if you planned to check out Quasimodo and friends at The Carnegie, this weekend is your last chance.
And, as usual, plenty of live music:
Now or never at The Carnegie
Want to see “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” at The Carnegie?
You need to go this weekend. The four showings from Friday through Sunday evening are the last before the production ends.
Tickets and info, HERE.
Farmers Market is back
Yes, it’s winter. But this is Covington, and the Farmers Market here is year-round.
Typical wares include 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 - 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday at Smoke Justis. Info, HERE.
