Each year during the museum’s August traditional skiff sailing event boaters race around the islands for the Shanghai Trophy. Originally, the Shanghai Trophy was awarded to a winner in the Comet class. The disappearance of Comets from the sound left the cup in limbo but, after the resurgence of local recreational sailing activity in the late 1950’s, it resurfaced and has been awarded to the winner of that class of boats with greatest representation in the race. In the last few years spritsail skiffs have battled for this historic trophy, which resides in the Web Library. This race starts in front on the Harvey W. Smith Watercraft Center on Taylors Creek at about 9 a.m. North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort, 315 Front Street, Beaufort. www.ncmaritimemuseums.com.

The Infusion Cafe proudly presents a free-wheeling, smash-'em-up evening of blues and rock-n- roll comedy like only Jake and Elwood can bring home.

Jake and Elwood Blues (Kurt Petersen and Dave Springle) are getting "The Band" back together (Tim Raynor, Gabe Raynor & Phil Routzsong) to wow you and to save the day... and they can't lose, after all, they're on a "mission from God"!
Featuring a "fabulous rhythm and blues review" of music from the 1980 movie- funky, late '70s at its best; served up with three courses of Blues Brothers tribute fare (that's a full three course meal that even Aretha, owner of The Soul Food Cafe, would be pleased to serve. Mmmmm. Just "Think about it!" "Best d*** chicken in the state.")
If you're a fan of toe-tapping, knee-slapping, tail-shaking, four fried chickens and a coke; this is a dinner theatre experience you don't want to to miss!
Tickets required. Seating is limited.
Call 252-240-2800 for event and ticket information and to guarantee your seats.

When all is sung and done, this evening will surely be remembered as a most enjoyable, bombastically whimsical and "Truly Scrumptious" journey into musical fantasy.
So fasten your seatbelt. "Thiz is your captain speaking. We hope you had a pleasant trip. In a few moments we will be landing in Vulgaria."

Country Cool

August 26, 2017 | 8:00 pm-10:00 pm
1311 Arendell Street, Morehead City, NC
(252) 497-8919

COUNTRY COOL is a straight-shootin’, no-holds-barred comedy show that laughs at what we’re all dealin’ with…the “this can’t really be happening” moments in life that make us feel like we’re losing our minds, one traffic jam at a time. Trish Suhr, Karen Mills and Leanne Morgan, all headlining comedians, have southern roots but are well-traveled, diverse, razor sharp and savvy. Their no-nonsense approach “tells it like it is” but, of course, with charm and style.  It’s not redneck; it’s not white trash -- these girls are country cool!  It’s comedy for the masses, because, let’s face it, everybody’s got a little country in ‘em. These three women have been friends for more than a decade and have stood in it, walked through it and come out the other side laughing. Whether it’s overcoming cancer, the loss of a beloved pet or talking each other down from the hormonal ledge, they continue to find the humor in everything life dishes out.  Read more about these Country Cool Women.
