~ Cat's Pajamas is doing an vocal concert at the Performing Arts Center on Monday at 7 pm. Friends who have seen this group perform in the past rave about them. Everything is vocal, but you would swear there was an entire band up there when they perform. Tickets are $10 for adults, $7 for student, and are available through the any Monroe School office. The event benefits the Monroe School District Choral Department.

~ It will be a busy week for YPs. Tuesday evening is their monthly happy hour networking event. Pop in at Baumgartner's any time after 5:30 for free cheese trays and drink specials. Baumgartener's is owned by fellow YP'er Chris Soukup, and he is sponsoring the food.

~ After the YP happy hour, come over to Kookaburra's in Monroe for one of their cooking classes. Cooking for 2 is this week's class. Sign up on their website or by talking with Laura, $25 per person. They will be making fondue, ravioli gratin, custard and more, and attendees get to eat what they make!

Goodness, there is a lot going on. This doesn't even cover the normal movies and dining options in the area. Have fun!
