Happy Friday you guys!! There are a LOT of fun events happening around town this month. Here is a glimpse of 7 things to do, if you don't already have plans for this weekend (Oct 11, 12, 13). Looking for even more options? Check out our events tab on our Facebook page!
1. See a Show
Sat 2pm, 8pm
Mckinney Repertory Theatre (111 N Tennessee St)
Mckinney Repertory Theatre presents Drinking Habits. In the Convent of The Sisters of Perpetual Sewing, two nuns secretly make wine in order to keep the convent open. Two reporters (their former fiancés) go undercover to expose them. A new nun arrives, who is thought to be a spy from the Vatican sent to shut down the convent. Spirits and secrets are spilled as everyone tries to preserve the convent and reconnect with lost loves.

4. Make a seasonal craft at a Winery
Mitas Hill Vineyard (2300 Vineyard Hill Lane)
We will be creating on a 12" by 12" smooth wooden gesso panel. You will get to practice with alcohol inks on paper first and then create on your panel. You will be moving the inks around by blowing through a straw but a few hair dryers will be set up as well to help you if you need it. Each person will get up to 2 sheets of gold leaf or silver leaf to apply at the end.
You also have the option of getting a 6 in plastic pumpkin. You will do the same process as the board, including having the option to add gold leaf. I will teach you the process from start to finish.
This class will be held at Mitas Hill Vineyards in McKinney. Your first glass of wine (red or white) is on ColorHype! They also serve food at the bar so feel free to come hungry and eat at the restaurant!

6. Wood Fired Pizza, Beer, and Live Music
Cadillac Pizza Pub (112 S Kentucky St)
The Maylee Thomas Band will be rocking out at Cadillac this Saturday. From her early days as a Gospel singer to her legendary status as a Texas Diva, Maylee Thomas-fuller transcends genres, mixing Gospel-based blues with soul driven rock, touches of pop, with the very faintest caresses of country from time to time… and audiences respond. Maylee Thomas Band is the soul of Texas and a must see act.
Cadillac will be serving up hot wood-fired pizza and cold drafts to go with Maylee's fantastic sound! If you're looking for a relaxing mid-weekend place, we've got you covered. Join us in jamming-out with Maylee Thomas.
