This month is for the Purple One. Join DJ IGA The Independent Grocer at Spacebar Arcade for an evening of Prince - hits, deep cuts, Paisley Park artists, influences, contemporaries and disciples (10pm-1am). No cover. Wear something purple.
Spacebar will have a custom keg of Payette Brewing Co. Purple Reign purple-colored beer on tap, and Tyler Walker (Magic Sword, Delicate Steve, Bad90s, Wooden Indian Burial Ground, Sun Blood Stories, Finn Riggins, CAMP, the Dirty Moogs) will provide visuals and projection mapping to accompany the music.
The third place (also known as third space) is a term used in the concept of community building to refer to social surroundings separate from the two usual social environments of home and the workplace. In his influential book "The Great Good Place," Ray Oldenburg argues that third places are important for civil society, democracy, civic engagement and establishing feelings of a sense of place.
Third places are anchors of community life and facilitate and foster broader, more creative interaction. Oldenburg suggests the following hallmarks of a true third place:
- Free or inexpensive
- Food and drink, while not essential, are important
- Highly accessible: proximate for many (walking distance)
- Involve regulars: those who habitually congregate there
- Welcoming and comfortable
- Both new friends and old should be found there
