This Weekend! Legos, Jazz, Etc.

Weekend Stuff!

The Yerwood Center's Community Jazz and Art Fair from 9-6 Saturday. The arts and crafts are in Jackie Robinson Park, on Route 1 East near the Dunkin Donuts. The Jazz is in the Yerwood Center which is on the West Side off exit 6 just south of the highway. It’s the Yerwood’s 65th anniversary. I can’t tell from the website or newspapers, but sounds like the jazz gets going in the afternoon. I would have liked to go to this; the center was built while I was living in Southfield and I always wondered what it was. Click for directions.

Master Lego Builder Nathan Sawaya builds new piece at Stamford Museum, Sunday 11-430. He's going to answer questions and sign autographs. Free with gate admission. A bunch of his work in on display until Aug 17. That's a pic of Nathan above with his Lego sculpture.

Also at Stamford Museum, Stamford Amateur Radio on Sat and Sun. Set-up at 10 a.m., on-air activity begins at 2. From the Advocate: Residents are invited to learn about amateur radio's newest digital and satellite capabilities, voice communications and the Morse Code. Operators from across the country will demonstrate emergency communications capabilities. That sounds cool!

Walk to Cure Scleroderma at Stamford High. Register for $15 beforehand (call 800-867-0885) and $20 the day of. Registration 9am, walk at 10. Register online.

Last days of Arts and Ideas Festival in New Haven. See schedule.

Definitely see the Legos if you haven't already. Very cool, even if you don't have kids.

Plus Democratic candidate for Congress, Jim Himes, is walking across the district -- from Greenwich to Bridgeport --- on Saturday!

He'll be walking through Stamford from about 7:30AM - 9AM. Details are here:

It's a great opportunity to get to know a future Congressman and give him a tour of Stamford!

Maura, thanks! I was going to post that, but one website I saw seemed to say he was walking today. Odd. Thanks for correcting me.

Just found another event listed at my friend Meg Robustelli's site, Sunday summer concerts at the Bartlett Arboretum in North Stamford. From her site:

Hot Cat Jazz Band – June 29
A Bartlett favorite specializing in swing, big band, jazz and classic rock dance music. They feature swing standards from the 20's, 30's and 40's as well as songs by James Taylor, Billy Joel, Elvis, Beatles and Simon & Garfunkel.

Thanks Meg! There are some great sounding concerts, so check FCC or the Bartlett for each Sunday's lineup.

My husband is on the board at the Bartlett. Please go! Maybe we will see y'all there (that would be fun!).

Also happening in Stamford on Sunday morning is the KIC IT triathlon benefits Kids in Crisis.

It's worth knowing about just for the traffic headaches.
