If you are out and about this weekend and are looking for a little old-world charm, head over to the O. Henry Hotel. The above black and white photo features the courtyard in the very heart of the hotel. Just beyond is where their southern breakfast is served and, at the point where the photographer is standing, is the lobby where afternoon tea is available. Even for people who aren't staying at the hotel, the O. Henry is a vibrant and dynamic place for the general public.
This upcoming week is packed with a lot of great happenings. On Thursday, they are offering a cocktails and jazz package featuring the music of Emile Worthy; next weekend, they are having a Farm-to-Fork Harvest Gathering with sustainable food movement folks, talks, and food.* The O. Henry is a dynamic place that can connect you to the pulse of the present or can take you back to yesteryear. Sometimes, it is good to get away, even if you don't leave town.
As for today, if you are local, consider heading to the Coliseum for the Living Art America North American Body Painting Championship. There will be live body painting sections from 2-4:30 and at 8pm, a runway show. Greensboro is a busy town on the weekends and the world's best body painters are here to share their art with us!
