Best Bets This Week


Rising comedian Hampton Yount performs at the Avalon Theatre in Easton on Friday, January 4.

Easton keeps the celebration going  this weekend with the ‘First’ First Friday Gallery Walk.  Highlights include the Academy Art Museum’s open house featuring demonstrations by the Museum’s fine art instructors of adult classes and the Talbot County Visual Arts Center’s exhibit “Monday Afternoon Painters” at Church Alley Gallery. The exhibit will include paintings of five  local Arts Center members who paint weekly with Easton gallery owner and  landscape painter, David Grafton.

Hampton Yount, named  one of 2012’s best new comedians by Esquire magazine, returns to the Avalon Friday night; the perfect antidote to all those “fiscal cliff” worries.

And just in case you are still really in the mood for partying, local favorite Deanna Bogart will be doing her blues/boogie thing in Annapolis Thursday evening at the Rams Head on Stage. Jump blues Mitch Woods and his Rocket 88s are also on the bill.
