Posted By on Mon, Nov 17, 2014 at 10:12 AM

The start of a new week means a whole bunch of new opportunities to get out and about using our extensive event listings or Staff Picks to plan your day or evening entertainment. 

No time? We got ya covered. Here are some highlights from our listings for Monday, Nov. 17: 

PERFORMANCE ARTS | You might have noticed that the holidays are pretty much getting into full swing even though we haven't hit Thanksgiving yet. Don't fight it, especially if it means missing your chance to see dancers from the Moscow Ballet performing the holiday favorite The Nutcracker at the Bing. 

MUSIC | You've read our story about the Bob Curnow Big Band, now go see them perform tonight at The Big Dipper

WORDS | The folks behind the Spokane Poetry Slam are hosting a special event at The Bartlett tonight, the Community Cover Slam, in which local poets will perform works written not by themselves, but by their local peers.
