Today, December 16, is the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party where colonists in Boston expressed their displease with King George by dumping highly taxed tea into the harbor. This is one of the events that preceded the American Revolutionary War. The current political Tea Parties take their name from this event.
The popular Acker Music Festival happens Friday, 12/10/2010 in Prescott, Az. Musicians perform in local businesses in downtown Prescott. Details and programs can be found at this location. Last time I checked, the weather was forecasted to be a bit warmer than normal, so it should be quite nice. This is really worth checking out.
