Sushi Making with Michelle
MAKE SOUTH BEND – *Registration closes 3 days prior to this event. Michelle FitzGerald, owner of MAKE SOUTH BEND, is a big Japanese fan and took Japanese classes for 3 years way back in high school and got to travel through Japan for a few weeks as well, though all she can say is "I like sushi." Lucky for her, one of the skills she learned and retained was the art of making sushi. It all comes down to the rice. In this sushi making class, you'll learn what ingredients are best to use and how to prepare them to start making your own amazing sushi rolls. Each student will receive a bamboo sushi mat to keep and be able to make 2 types of maki rolls to practice your new skills. Enjoy some sake or green tea as you eat your freshly made sushi. This is a 21+ event.

LATW: "The Mountaintop" | Presenting Series
DeBartolo Performing Arts Center – Ticket sales begin August 21! Winner of the prestigious Olivier Award for Best New Play, "The Mountaintop" imagines what happened inside the Lorraine Motel’s room 306 the night before April 4, 1968. In the expert hands of L.A. Theatre Works and an experienced touring cast, Katori Hall's fictional reimagining begins in Memphis in April 1968, as King finishes delivering his impassioned "I've Been to the Mountaintop" speech. Exhausted, he retires to room 306 at the Lorraine Motel, where he encounters a young hotel maid with whom he forges an unexpected relationship. During a conversation that ranges from the personal to the political, King finds himself confronting his destiny and the fate of the very nation to which he's devoted his life. Event contains mature or adult content. Ages 14 and up recommended. This performance is part of the Presenting Series' annual King Week celebration Higher Ground: Artists Inspiring Community. Be sure to join us Saturday at 7:30 p.m. for our popular African drumming and dance celebration led by UZIMA! Made possible by Rick and Peg McFeeley Golden.
