3 things to do this week
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.ticketleap.com/jimmie.
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 RevelationSpeaksPeace2016.com/Elkton 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 hopsandhotrods.eventbrite.com.
