We keep writing up these Welcome Hat events because they keep booking really good entertainment and vendors, that’s all there is to it. In addition to hearing Al Church and meeting the Klondike Kates, there’s food and drink samples by St. Paul Switchel, Summit Brewing Company, The Liffey Irish Pub, and Cheng Heng Restaurant. Plus you can see the My Realm Is The World prints inspired by immigrant stories done by Christopher Saint Christopher that we previously mentioned. All that, and you get to help new St. Easy residents feel welcomed. 5-7 PM. Free. —Myron Wellsleyen
