Each month I look for TV shows, movies, and events to look forward to. Keep checking back, as I plan on adding more events as I discover them.
The Oddities & Curiosities Expo is a traveling oddities event established in 2017, and quickly growing. Doubling from eight cities in 2018 to sixteen in 2019, each stop features a full spectrum of local and national venders offering all sorts of strange and unusual offerings. Some of the stops will feature Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! mini museum. I already have my tickets for their June 29th stop in Charlotte, which will also feature a side show and live human suspensions.
Thursday, May 2nd– Catch Venus and a crescent Moon aligning close to each other before twilight.
Saturday, May 4th– The post time for 2019’s Kentucky Derby may not be until 6:50pm, coverage will start on NBC at 2:30pm. I plan on making the most out of watching the two minute race by enjoying mint juleps and taking some free guesses at some of the most ridiculous prop bets. My favorite is “Will Mark Hamill tweet ‘May the horse be with you.”
Sunday, May 5th– Consider celebrating Cinco de Mayo early in the morning by watching the Eta Aquariid meteor shower. If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, expect to see about three meteors per hour.
Monday, May 6th– Chernobyl premieres on HBO
Fathom events is one night showing of Batman Returns starring Michael Keaton, celebrating the 80th anniversary of the Batman Comics.
