Let's close down September in style, using some worthy entertainment options found in our event listings and Staff Picks. Here are a few of the highlights I found for the week ahead:

COMMUNITY | Hit Terrain tonight for a discussion and presentation on Spokane's Mid-Century Modern Legacy. Hosted by the Spokane City | County Historic Preservation Office and the Spokane Historic Landmarks Commission, you'll see examples of the different types and styles highlighted, learn about the architects who left their mark on Spokane and more.
