CoMo Weekender: Summertime ft art, wine and plays

Beat the heat with these indoor events. Sip wine and enjoy art. Catch a musical or comedy. Go anywhere that has the A/C pumping.

PS:Gallery Summer 2012 Artists Reception (Sat, 6 p.m.)

Check out the Artists Reception at PS:Gallery on Saturday night and see work from local, regional and national artists. Chat with the artists as you peruse the artwork. With Sycamore Restaurant and Maipe Wines as co-sponsors, I’m sure you’ll enjoy some yummy treats, too.

Les Bourgeois Collector’s Series Wine Release Party & Art Show (Sat, 2 p.m.)

Head to the Blufftop Bistro at Les Bourgeois Vineyards for a taste of new vintage wine. Sample the Collector’s Series while viewing artwork. Although the event is free, you might want to walk away with a few bottles and works of art.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (Sat, 7:30 p.m.)

This Broadway play didn’t win nine Tony Awards for nothing. Catch this musical comedy at the Rhynsburger Theatre on Saturday and experience a funny thing that happened yourself.

The Importance of Being Earnest (Fri, 7:30 p.m.; Sun, 2 p.m.)

Make a weekend at the Rhynsburger Theatre and see this classic Oscar Wilde comedy. Who knows? Maybe you’ll walk out of the theatre with Earnest as your new pseudonym.

James & the Giant Peach (Fri, 7 p.m.; Sat, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.; Sun, 2 p.m.)

Take a shopping break at Columbia Mall and watch the TRYPS Children’s Theatre production of the Roald Dahl classic: James & the Giant Peach. It’ll have you craving those summer peaches.
