What Else is Happening in Provincetown Winter 2020?
Coffeehouse at the Mews
Now entering its 29th year, Mondays at 7pm is all about the Coffeehouse. Each night a local Cape performer is highlighted, along with an open mic for writers, playwrights, poets, singers, songwriters, comedians, etc. The host for the evening is singer-songwriter Peter Donnelly, who co-founded the Coffeehouse with Mews owner and radio/television personality Ron Robin. Come for dinner and stay for the show, or come for the show only and enjoy a wonderful night of entertainment with a Mews signature cocktail. Runs from November through May.
Winter Wednesdays is a free community program bringing people together to learn new skills, meet other locals, and stay active and connected during the quiet winter moths on Cape Cod. The program runs Wednesday evenings from 6 to 8pm, February 6 to March 27 at the Provincetown Schools, 12 Winslow Street (enter through the Grace Hall lot, by the playground). Last year, Winter Wednesdays brought together roughly 50 local residents to socialize and stay connected with classes and activities such as card making, pie baking, woodworking, acting Shakespeare, movie musicals, meditation and more.
Center for Coastal Studies Lecture Series at Napi’s
Once a month throughout the winter, an educator from Provincetown’s Center for Coastal Studies presents programs on topics such as climate disruption, Gulf Stream orphan protection, whale entanglement, seal research and protection, and sea turtle migration. Lecture topics to be announced. Wednesdays, 7pm, free
Team Trivia at Napi’s
Now in its thirteenth year, Michelle Crone’s popular team trivia night is Thursdays at 7pm at Napi’s restaurant. Drop-ins are always welcome, so if you’re in town for a week, come on by, they’ll match you up with a team. Cash prizes to top-two winning teams.
Thursday Night at the Movies at WOMR
Thursday nights you can head over to Cape Cod’s only community radio station, WOMR, for a “reel” old movie, often accompanied by live piano and, sometimes, ukulele. Hosted by Brad Moore, the 7:30 show includes free popcorn and there’s wine available for purchase. The five-dollar admission fee benefits the radio station.
Lunch at the Soup Kitchen
Established in 1992, the Soup Kitchen In Provincetown (SKIP) provides a hot, nourishing lunch to Outer Cape Cod residents, November through April, Monday through Friday. Lunch is served from 12:30pm to 1:30pm on weekdays. SKIP serves over 125 meals a day, over 15,000 meals each season, to residents who are either in need or seek community during the long, wintertime months. The lack of proper nutrition is a serious problem for many in this area, affecting both seniors on fixed incomes, and the workers facing seasonal unemployment caused by the tourist economy. The warm, sociable atmosphere of the dining room can also be as nourishing as the meal itself. Donations of any amount are accepted and each gift is acknowledged. A gift may be given to commemorate an occasion or in a person’s memory, and SKIP can send a notification. For just $250, you can sponsor one day’s lunch for over 100 people!
