Nature is big this week plus there’s so much more going on. We have chocolate, William Shatner, a raucous band concert and a book signing.
Take a look at what I have here. There’s no doubt you’ll find something interesting.
For The Love of Chocolate
For the Love of Chocolate is a fun evening at The Hermitage Thursday (Feb 9) night at 7 pm. Anyone who loves chocolate or just wants to learn from a renown Chef, (Kim Hendrickson), will want to come. Because this is both a chocolate tasting and learning event, it’s going to be a fascinating and delightful evening. You’ll even get to leave with some samples and additional chocolate can be purchsed for $5 more than your $30 ticket. Tickets are ordered online.
The Wrath of Khan with Captain Kirk
Whether you’re a Trekie of not, you’ll have a great time 8 pm Saturday night at the Bergen Performing Arts Center. That’s because you’ll watch “Star Trek II The Wrath of Khan” followed by William Shatner who played Captain James Kirk. Tickets are not cheap – I usually limit events to moderate prices or free. However, because you get both a movie and Mr. Shatner, this is like 2 events in 1. So get your tickets online and have a blast Saturday night.
Black Box Theater Saturday Night
The Black Box Theater has a reading of what they call a hysterically funny play Saturday night at 8 pm. The reading is of the play The Agony & The Agony by Ricky Silver. I believe Mr. Silver will be doing the reading. Cash or Venmo at the door for the #20 tickets.
Get Your Rock & Roll On!
Couch Band is a group of friends who came together creating a very unique sound. You’ll love their new take on pop music which will get you out of your seat dancing. This fun evening happens Saturday night 8 pm at the Hackensack Performing Arts Theater. Tickets, sold online, are $45 for premium and $25 for standard.
Mary Calvi & Chris Wragge at Bookends in Ridgewood

Mary will be autographing hew new book,”If A Poem Could Live and Breathe”. Since this is a book signing event, attendees must purchase Mary’s new book, All the information is on this link.
I’d like to ask you a favor – Bookends is one of less than 5 family owned book stores left in Bergen County. Before you order a book in Amazon, get it here. We need to support family owned small business. (In case you’re wondering – I’m not affiliated with them in any way)

The Closter Nature Center has 2 happenings going on this weekend:
Trail Volunteer Event
Do you like working out? Then skip the gym and come to the Closter Nature Center. Volunteers are needed to help clean up the trails this Saturday from 10 am to 12:30 pm. You’ll be part of a great group of people and you’ll feel so good for helping out. Go to their website for all the information.
Since trails are now cleared of debris, it’s time for a winter hike starting at 1 pm and ending at 2:30 pm. The Nature Center asks you to wear rubber bottomed shoes. Bring your sweet tooth too because roasting marshmallows over an open fire ends this even. You can register and get all the details online.
