Thursday, Jan. 9: Angels Among Us is throwing a beer-centric event to raise awareness about their work in the community.

Gather your flock and head to Buildertrend. Pick up tickets here now.

Friday, Jan. 10: The newest Star Wars movie came out a few weeks ago, so if you’re a fan chances are you’ve already seen it. But you can keep the force going strong when you take the kids to Star Wars Weekend at Omaha Children’s Museum. Don a costume, watch the Imperial March, and allow yourself to be taken to another galaxy for a while. Seek more information here.

Friday, Jan. 10: The great thing about certain types of art is that all types of people are able to appreciate it. I would say Hugo Zamorano’s work fits in that category. It’s truly for everyone, as he has helped create several murals in the Omaha area. Crutches is his latest exhibit, opening at Project Project. Learn more about the artist here and more about this free event here.
