“The Mixing Bowl” on Saturday, March 15th Starts
with “Beatles Night”!
3rd Saturdays | 7 – 10 p.m.
Surge Community Church | 1988 Kirby Road | Mclean, VA
Hosted by Paige Powell
A real mixer that includes lots of bowls? Yes, we plan to
“mix” members from SAW, their friends, and some
members from the Surge and we’ll start early with a
pot-luck supper at 6:00 p.m., followed by open mic performances
with a twist: Every 3rd Saturday, we’ll have a musical
theme, and we’ll start this new venue by having a “Beatles”
night! Everyone is encouraged to play a favorite Beatles song
OR a song they’ve written that was inspired by the Beatles
(with some explaining during the introduction, maybe). There’s
a limit of 3 songs, and you can sign up in advance by emailing
our host, Paige Powell at firstname.lastname@example.org,
or sign up when you arrive. Bring a casserole, appetizer,
beverage, side dish or dessert to share, and if it is a culinary
masterpiece, you may want to bring copies of the recipe when
people rave about it! Performances start at 7:00 p.m. after
the pot-luck supper. We are also asking for volunteers to
help with cleaning up afterward, keeping in mind that many
great friendships have started in a kitchen!
