3 things to do this week

Cecil Whig - - ACCENT -

Help Jim­mie the gi­raffe find a mate Jim­mie’s lonely. As a male gi­raffe housed at the Plump­ton Park Zoo, he spends most of his time toil­ing alone, his head the only one hung near the clouds. Some peo­ple want to change that.

On Thurs­day, from 6 to 10 p.m., the Well­wood in Charlestown will host a fundraiser to help land Jim­mie a girl­friend. It’s $40 a per­son or $70 for a cou­ple, and that will in­clude heavy hors d’oeu­vres, live en­ter­tain­ment (Take 2), a cash bar and a silent auc­tion. In ad­di­tion, there will be a date auc­tion fea­tur­ing Ris­ing Sun Mayor Travis Mar­ion and Ris­ing Sun po­lice of­fi­cer Dal­las Her­bert. Help a gi­raffe out. For tick­ets, visit Pp­zoo.tick­­mie.

Learn about the book of Rev­e­la­tion Start­ing next Fri­day, 7 p.m., at the Prov­i­dence Sem­i­nar Au­di­to­rium (3085 Singerly Rd., Elk­ton), Sev­enth Day Ad­ven­tist churches in the re­gion will be­gin host­ing a free, week-long sem­i­nar ex­plor­ing in­ter­pre­ta­tions of the Bi­ble’s fi­nal, apoc­a­lyp­tic book.

While the sem­i­nar, ti­tled “Rev­e­la­tion Speaks Peace,” ap­par­ently will not skirt around cat­a­clysm — its nightly lessons have ti­tles like “A Planet in Up­heaval” and “Time of the End” — its web­site states that the pro­gram is de­signed “to take away the mys­tique and fear of the Bi­ble prophecy.”

So if you’re look­ing for an­swers about the end of time and whether we’re in the midst of it, you won’t want to miss this. There will also be free child care (ages 3 to 10), and if you pre-reg­is­ter at Reve­la­tionS­peak­­ton or 1-844-668-2000, you’ll re­ceived a free prophecy DVD on open­ing night.

Drink beer while look­ing at nice cars The Hol­ly­wood Casino in Per­ryville (1201 Ch­e­sa­peake Over­look Park­way) will host its in­au­gu­ral Hops & Hot Rods Craft Brew Fes­ti­val on Satur­day.

Begin­ning at noon and go­ing to about 5 p.m., it’ll fea­ture unlimited beer tast­ing from pop­u­lar ven­dors like DuClaw, Fly­ing Dog, In­de­pen­dent, Heavy Seas, Sam Adams, New Bel­gium and more. There will also be food trucks, free live en­ter­tain­ment and, of course, a clas­sic car show. There’s a rain date sched­uled for the next day, Oct. 2.

A-List ac­cess tick­ets: $40; Gen­eral ad­mis­sion: $30; Des­ig­nated driv­ers: $15. Ad­vance tick­ets can be bought at hop­sand­
