Whether in celebration or disbelief, many people will probably be feeling a need for a drink or two (or three or…) this day after the midterm elections. Fortunately, some local venues have just what the doctor ordered. The Classy Cork Wine Room is hosting Wine Bingo. No skill required! They play four rounds, so you have four chances to win fun wine-themed prizes. For something a tad stronger, The Federal American Grill is hosting the Four Roses Bourbon Barrel Release. Enjoy swag giveaways: t-shirts, lapel pins, and more! And Fielding’s Local Kitchen + Bar is hosting Old Fashioned Week. They’re celebrating the Old Fashioned with amazing Old Fashioned cocktails from their craft bar team. There's something for all taste buds so come try specials like the Oaxaca Fashioned, Ron's Best, Gingerbread Old Fashioned, Eau-de-Vie, and the Weller 12 fashion.

It’s a tale as old as time that we take education and entertainment equally seriously here in The Woodlands. And The John Cooper School is making sure to deliver both in massive doses as the staff, administration, and students invite you to the school’s inaugural Fine Arts Preview Night. In fact, they want you to be their guest to this event that is free and open to the public as their performing arts department proudly presents the Disney musical Beauty and the Beast, starting at 6:00 p.m.

Does your mother know that Dosey Doe - The Big Barn has some amazing tribute bands that regularly visit the venue and rock the roof off? Sometimes these tribute bands look and sound so much like the original that people exclaim “Mamma mia!” and think about sending out an SOS to the cops for identity theft. But this time around we should just tell the Dosey Doe staff ‘thank you for the music’ as Arrival from Sweden delivers a fun-filled dinner/live music show with the music of ABBA, Sweden’s biggest music export ever, with almost 400 million records sold. The musical and movie “MAMMA MIA” is a world hit sensation. PlayStation ABBA Sing Star is a great success, and “ABBA The Museum” opened up in 2013 in Stockholm, Sweden. Doors open at 5:30, and the band takes the stage at 7:30, with a full course meal in between.
