Happy Hour Music, Friday, Sept. 11:

All this rainy weather is perfect for spending a little time at an Irish pub. What’s even better is that you can listen to a little music from a local country, blues, and rock artist when you catch their Acoustic Happy Hour with Joe McCarthy. So pour a little whiskey and find a little comfort in the music. Get the details here.

Penguin Play Time, Friday, Sept. 11 to Sunday, Oct. 18:

We’ve all been a little mopey lately, but the star of Penguin Problems likely has you beat. Mortimer is a constant complainer, and his woes are always worse than yours. Take your kids to see his hilarious journey unfold at The Rose Theater. But bundle up, because it’s going to be a cold ride! Find out more about this sullen penguin show here. Touchless ticketing is available for this show.

Oktoberfest Begins, Friday, Sept. 11 to Saturday, Sept. 12:

It’s time to party like the Germans at this two-day Oktoberfest celebration at Rathskeller Bier Haus. Naturally, there will be plenty of brews, food, and live music. But there will also be social distancing and masks, with spaced out seating and plenty of hand sanitizer. Weitere Informationen hier.

Cultural Learning, Saturday, Sept. 12:

The 29th annual Fort Omaha Virtual Intertribal Powwow will be held virtually. The event celebrates Native American cultures with traditional dance, music, artistry, oral history, and foods. Various tribes across Nebraska and the surrounding region will be represented, including Omaha, Ponca, Santee Sioux, and Winnebago. Virtual attendees are invited to share a video or photo of themselves singing and dancing. (Submissions will be reviewed for cultural appropriateness before appearing in the discussion feed.) Learn more here.

Autumnal Conjuring, Sunday, Sept. 13:

Midwest Conjure Fest promises to provide a fun, family-friendly time that will put you in the mood for autumn festivities. Get a reading, shop the vendors, and listen to some music (including from Omaha Magazine alum Hector Anchondo). And of course, there will be food available. Please be responsible and respectful in regards to social distancing and wearing masks. Find out more about the event here.
