The weekend's coming, and if you don't have plans for it yet, Patch can help. Here's a list of events and activities taking place not too far away! We haven't included too many Halloween-themed events here because we'll also feature a separate guide for those activities.

Employing women and artists of color in non-traditional roles, this production is set against the backdrop of Game of Thrones to create a fresh and compelling take on this classical work.
