Weekend at a Glance


Didn’t get tickets to the big game? There’s still plenty to do this weekend

By James Dupree
Run or walk The Blue Blood Rivalry 5K course on Saturday in Meadowmont Village and the Oaks Golf Course. (Pictured above: last year’s race on American Tobacco Campus.)


Stop by The PIT Chapel Hill for a night of comedic genius as the Fabulous Karmyn, a Charlotte-based drag diva and social media star, performs her show “A Hustler and A Queen.” Hosted by DJ Teddy Bee and featuring Charlotte-based comedian CoCo Fresh, the show will benefit the Orange County Rape Crisis Center and raise awareness for male victims of domestic, sexual and systematic abuse. 


In honor of International Women’s Day, Frank Community Gallery of Chapel Hill is hosting Women Speak,” a celebration of women giving voice to the feminine experience through portraits, poetry and prose. Join them for their artist reception from 6 to 9pm, and then enjoy a display of works by local artist Nancy L. Smith and written works from others until Sunday.


Kickstart the day of the Duke vs. UNC game with a 5K race that celebrates the longtime rivals at the Blue Blood Rivalry Run – Hoops EditionDeclare your allegiance and receive your race shirt in either Duke Blue or Carolina Blue before the race starts in Meadowmont Village.
