In the upcoming days at SubRosa & around town

Lots of folks are celebrating the winter solstice right now and so SubRosa will be quiet for a number of days (actually folks are elsewhere for a number of reasons at this time of year, I just like to highlight the solstice, which is for me a time to slow down and go inward).

Well, in case you do want to be out and about, here is a bit of what is going on at SubRosa in the days ahead, and also a bit about what's going on around town.

-Fri. Dec. 27th- open hours sometime in the afternoon until sometime in the evening

-Sat. Dec. 28th- is someone coming in to staff?  I am not sure, but you can call (831) 426-5242 to check or just come on by and see what you see

-Sun. Dec. 29th-Tues. Dec. 31st- not open, but so much going on the next day!  And there is the Last Night DIY Parade this Tues. night (read more about that below)

-Wed. Jan. 1st-  open hours 11am-3pm (and a show at night!)

*HUFF Meeting- 11am-1pm:

DOGBRETH!! at 7pm:  cool pop punk show!!! bring $ (notaflof)

-Thurs. Jan 2nd- open hours 2pm-7pm

*Guitar Skills- beginning to advanced (a Free Skool Santa Cruz class offering)- 5-6pm: 
Let's learn how to read tablature, play scales, play chords and basic strumming patterns, fingerpick, tune your guitar by ear, make a capo, string your guitar, and jam with others. Requirements: Must have any semi-functioning guitar or any guitar-like instrument (if need strings put on or if guitar needs any minor repair I can help with that). 
 *Open Mic- 7:30pm signups:  Open mic is a space for you to share yourself in anyway that feels right to you.  And you can just come and soak it all up. Donations directly benefit this community-supported space.

-Fri. Jan. 3rd- open hours 2pm-7pm

*Self Knowledge for Anarchists- 5:30-6:30pm
(a Free Skool Santa Cruz class offering)- "Do I know myself well enough that my desire for change in the world translates into meaningful action? One approach is to begin from the ancient Socratic saying “Know thyself” -- if self- knowledge is the aim, then self-observation is one direct approach."

and here is some info about other stuff going on around town...

Tuesday Dec. 31st at 5pm- Last Night DIY New Year's Eve Parade:  a do-it-yourself celebration since 2005-  meet at Pacific and Spruce (behind Saturn Cafe)

Since 2005! The only parade where there are no spectators - only participants!  Last Night is a decentralized, collective, open, public New Year's Eve celebration.  DIY stands for do-it-yourself. And that is what we are doing. This is our celebration that you and I make happen. This is not a paid gig, not something organized or well-planned. It's a people's event. We are doing this just for the love of it.  More info at http://www.lastnightdiy.org/

 At a time when downtown is such a controlled and contested space, this is a chance for folks to come together to celebrate in a collaborative way outside of institutional dictates.
Also, go to the Free Skool website: calendar here and read Winter schedule online and/or print your own copy.  And there are also calendars around town.  Let's have an active and inspiring fall and winter together.  You can also go to the in-your-face-book thingy at https://www.facebook.com/freeskoolsantacruz

Comments on the SubRosa website are fully moderated. As a collective, we agreed that the purpose of the website was to promote SubRosa, not to provide an online place for lively and invigorating debate. We hope that the space itself is where conversations on the nature of anarchism and local projects will take place. That said, we occasionally approve comments that are informative or reflect a viewpoint we feel it is important for website visitors to read.
