What to do in Kingston This Weekend: Jan. 23-27

Find out what's on this week in Kingston!

The winter winds are upon Kingston, and here at QueensEvents we know all the ins and outs of staying warm this witheringly cold week.  Here are Thor’s picks for what to do this week/weekend!

Wednesday, Jan. 23:

Starting out with the Endgame, Marvel trivia night at Clark Hall Pub this Wednesday night is sure to be a hot topic — and no, I’m not just saying that because my name is Thor. Doors at 7:30pm, 19+, must have Queen’s ID

For those farther from campus, perhaps the Open Mic Night at the Tir nan Og will warm your hearts with their five dollar Keith’s and a chance to win a tattoo if you perform! Starts at 8pm, 19+

Thursday, Jan. 24:

Climb into an adventurous Thursday at Kingston Bouldering Cooperative’s free climbing week! This welcoming, volunteer-run environment is open to beginners or experienced climbers! Open 6pm-10pm.

If you’d rather have the excitement come to you from the comfort of a cozy living room, check out KCAP’s fundraising concert for the Kingston Street Mission at The Mansion, featuring The Goodnight Irenes and MTMBRYOYO. The Mission is a valuable resource open 6 nights a week for Kingston’s homeless and impoverished, and this concert is raising money to pay for needed kitchen renovations. Doors at 8pm, 19+

Friday, Jan. 25:

With your muscles sore from the free bouldering week at the KBC, Friday is the perfect day to treat yourself to a “full”-filling foodie event…

Start the day with our most anticipated event, the NUGGET RITUAL. Yes, you read that right. This week’s ritual theme targets a student’s two favourite things: chicken nuggets and beer. Open noon to 6pm at Clark Hall Pub, 19+, must have Queen’s ID

If this isn’t to your taste, perhaps TRANS Hours potluck might be. Trans people along with cis allies are invited to bring a dish to share to the AKA Autonomous Social Centre on Queen Street. This fun, free social costs nothing but the time it takes to ask your grandma for her famous Mac n Cheese recipe! 6pm-8pm

Saturday, Jan. 26:

Saturdays in the Limestone City can be hard to beat in terms of events! We recommend…

Start your afternoon with local musicians at the cozy hot chocolate charity concert for RAICES, an organization providing free and low cost legal services to underserved immigrant children. Relax in the cozy living room of the Kingston Community House at 99 York Street, just north of Princess. 2pm-5pm for $10/Pay What You Can

Sunday, Jan. 27:

This Sunday, you will be seeing me (Thor from QueensEvents) at the Summer of ’69 singer Bryan Adams’ concert in the Leon’s Centre downtown (some tickets still available)! $89+ starts at 8pm, all ages/19+

If you’re looking for an affordable outing, find adventure at the CRCA Winter Foraging Workshop, where, for only $4, you can become an expert winter survivalist – that, and come home with a take home handmade tea bag! 1pm-2:30pm
