1. Catch a show
On Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. in Hesston, the Dyck Arboretum of the Plains Prairie Window Concert Series will continue its 2017-18 season with Molly Venter and Goodnight Moonshine. The concert will take place in the Prairie Pavilion at the Arboretum overlooking the lake.
Tickets are by reservation at http://dyckarboretum.org/event/the-talbott-brothers/ or by calling 620-327-8127. Cost of tickets is $20 for adults and $10 for children, plus tax. Proceeds benefit the Arboretum’s mission to promote environmental landscaping with native plants.
Goodnight Moonshine is Molly Venter’s latest musical project, a collaboration with her husband Eben Pariser. Co-writing often, Eben and Molly explore what it means to be in a healthy authentic relationship; both wholesome and irreverent, they sing of joy and grief in equal measure.
In addition to high quality acoustic music, the PWCS provides delicious savory and sweet food options during intermission, with a menu provided by Crust & Crumb Company.
