Comedy & the new Kentucky Art Mine

COVINGTON, Ky. - It’s the big lull before the holidays, when we all take a breath before the panic (and the hyperventilating) of the Thanksgiving to New Year’s to-do list kicks in.
But that doesn’t mean you need to stay home.
Here in #LoveTheCov, we have a comedy show, the opening on an art gallery, a production at the Leapin’ Lizard, acrylic pouring class, the holiday toy trains, and two different tastings for quite different palates. And more.
Catnip Comedy Productions
He was a finalist in America’s Got Talent, and he’s the self-proclaimed “Cripple Threat of Comedy.”
On Sunday, Ryan Niemiller will be live at The Carnegie, sharing his “views of the world from the perspective of the handicapped.”
The dude is funny - and makes you step back and think.
Tickets, HERE.
Like Demons
Take off your apron ladies, it’s time to fight!
Set during the American Civil War, the production Like Demons will take you back in time to the forgotten stories of real women who lived and fought as male soldiers on the battlefield.
Get your tickets all weekend at the Leapin Lizard Lounge, HERE.
Art Gallery opening
Local artist Mack Malone hopes to bring artists from the region together in a collaborative way for art lovers to purchase “original, amazing art without having to take out a bank loan to purchase it.”
This Saturday, come to Greenup Street to celebrate the launching of the new website for the Kentucky Art Mine while also perusing the artwork of Bill Fultz, Lisa Sullivan, Kieran O'Hearn, Erica Chambers and Mack Malone. Music, drinks and snacks.
Info, HERE.
Holiday Toy Trains
Come relive your childhood.

Behringer-Crawford Museum’s holiday train display is back for the 28th year.
The Holiday Toy Train exhibit includes over 250 feet of model train track, vintage Lionel and Plasticville trains, Thomas the Tank Engine, and more than 30 moving, interactive displays. Also on display will be Wiley Wahoo's Winter Wonderland (an animated exhibit), and Dicken’s Village and its hundreds of miniature, hand-painted mansions.
Info, HERE.
Voilà (unveils beautiful art piece)
It’s fun, it’s colorful, and it’s messy.
But oh the stuff you can create via acrylic pouring.
Learn different techniques and make something unique and all your own at Chroma Vino on Saturday. Info, HERE.
Seasonal produce
Local farmers are busting their backs to extend the growing season and bring us fresh produce. And you can get it Saturday when the Covington Farmers Market spreads out indoors at Braxton Brewing Co. on Seventh Street.
Meat and eggs, produce, and a big variety of creative and hand-made foods and goods, like bread and pastries, soaps and lotions, cashew butter, honey, candles and seasonings.
This Saturday will feature live music by Mike Oberst.
Citrus season
Sure, the holidays are typically about candy and desserts. Lots and lots of desserts. (In other words, lots and lots of haunting calories.)
But here’s your chance to think healthy: The Florida Citrus Truckload sale on Saturday will offer freshly harvested navel oranges, ruby red grapefruits, tangerines, not to mention Florida Raw Honey & Georgia pecans. Bring a big, big basket.
