Local Events for Your Winter Weekend

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, have we got a selection for you. 

Music a la Carte with Jonas Myers – Jan. 7 

The Music a la Carte program at Oregon State University is returning with a piano. Jonas Myers will be playing for your entertainment at the Memorial Union, located at 2501 SW Jefferson, at 12:00 p.m. Just the right vibe to eat your lunch. 

The actual performance will only be open to OSU students and staff, however you can livestream the event here. 

Chocolate Pairing Adventure Series – Jan. 8 & 9 

Do you love chocolate? How about coffee? We’ve got you covered.  

This weekend, Stacey Newman Weldon will be hosting a chocolate pairing that you can attend wherever you are. 

The Chocolate and Coffee Pairing Adventure happens on Jan. 8 and Jan. 9 at 9 a.m. If you’ll be joining remotely, registration will gain you the URL to link in via Zoom. If you’re local to the Corvallis area and want to get out of the house, you can join in person at Conundrum House, located at 460 SW Madison Ave., on the second floor. Tickets are available through eventbrite. 

This event is hosted by Adventure Wednesday of Philomath – a place that is determined to get people to try new things and to try familiar things in new ways.  

Winter Foraging Workshop with Randy – Jan. 8 & 9 

If you’re a weekend-early-riser looking for something to do outside, this might be exactly what you were looking for.  

Beginning at 8 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday, come to 245 SW Cummings Ave., and Randy from Coyle Outside a locally based blend of experimental outdoor programs and nomadic/traveling instruction – will be waiting to show you how to forage.  

Open Table at Grace City Church – Jan. 9 

New to town? This brunch is held each term to welcome anyone new to the Corvallis area – although we imagine they’d like to see people old to the area as well.  

They call it Open Table because you’re supposed to always set your best table for guests. Mealtime is 12:30 p.m., and they’ll be serving their “infamous biscuits and gravy.”  

So, come on over to Grace city Church, located at 4000 SW Western Blvd., and make some new friends.
