Best Bets for May 5–7 | The Bainbridge Blab

If you’re not a fan of Star Trek, this week was probably a rough one for you. And If you are a fan of Star Wars, reading that first sentence probably hurt you worse than watching Episode One destroy your childhood.

Anyway, all nerdery and May the Fourth puns aside, here are your best bets for the weekend!

On Friday, head over to the Paper & Leaf and check out their brand new Market Elevated shop, located next door to the original boutique (8040 Day Road). P&L co-founders Brendan Hill and Steven Kessler will host a grand opening event at the new market from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, May 5, featuring legendary rock art from local collector Kirk Andreason, including his personal collection of original, autographed Pink Floyd album artwork and also pieces from Storm Thorgerson and Paul McCartney.

Since opening its doors in 2015, P&L has become a nationally-recognized cannabis outlet. Hill said that Market Elevated additionally compliments the neighboring shop by also serving Bainbridge’s cannabis lifestyle community by offering non-cannabis products too. Attendees must be 21.

On Saturday, head over to the Port Madison Yacht Club where there will be an open house for the public from 1:30 to 4 p.m.

Come enjoy music, food and a beautiful view of Port Madison; take a tour and learn about opportunities to get on the water this summer. The club is at 8478 NE Hidden Cove Road. Visit www.port for more information.

On Sunday, check out flutist Joshua Romatowski and pianist Mayumi Tayake in concert at 4 p.m. at Waterfront Park Community Center as part of First Sundays Concert series.

The pair will perform works by Seattle-based composer Daniel Carr. Carr’s music has been described as “undoubtedly of the 21st century in terms of technique and virtuosity yet retaining the elegant lyricism, driving rhythms and colorful harmonies which audiences love to hear and musicians love to perform.”
