Knox Area Weekend To Do List - January 15-17, 2021

We hope your 2021 is starting off well. We hope for you health, safety, and a fun year. 

Check out this edition of the Great Life RE Weekend To Do List! While we try to find activities and events that promote social distancing and a safe environment please always use your own judgment when attending any activity or function. 

Do: Snow Day(s) 2021

When: January 11 - January 31

Where: Online 

This year, like most things, the 13th annual Snow Day will be a bit different, while keeping the spirit of the event alive. This event will take place over the course of 3 weeks, with soup pick-ups, an online silent auction, and an art scavenger hunt! Hence, Snow Day(s)!


To keep us all safe, here's the new routine:

Six local restaurants will be competing to create the best soup in Knoxville, using at least one local ingredient. Ticket purchases will allow each participant to pick up one 8oz. cup of soup from all restaurants, during the restaurant’s designated soup week.

Two restaurants will serve soup weekly in the final three weeks of January. Participants will be given a link at the end of the final week to vote on their favorite soup. It is important to note each restaurant's open hours and week of participation in order to plan your soup pickup accordingly. Also, please note the ordering instructions for each restaurant. All restaurants have to-go options to encourage pandemic safety. 

Week 1 (January 11-17): Tako Taco and Emilia
Week 2 (January 18-24): Hen Hoc and Good Golly Tamale
Week 3 (January 25-31): Landing House and Simpl. 
**DETAILED ORDERING INSTRUCTIONS and SCHEDULE will be emailed to everyone with a ticket**

How can we have Snow Day without our silent auction? We're moving things online this year. Visit our website to see dozens of items from your favorite local businesses such as Gypsy Circus Cider, Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop, Dollywood, Meadowsweet Massage, Highland Manor Inn, and gift baskets from your very own Beardsley Farm! The auction will be live from January 11 at 8am-January 31st at 10pm. The auction link will be posted on January 11th at 8am. Start looking at available items now-->

Each soup restaurant will contain a hand painted card of a native plant. Collect all 6 of these unique cards to send as gifts, hang on your wall, and admire the beauties of our backyard!

Crafty Bastard Brewery will be offering a portion of their sales for the Imperial Milk Stout will go towards the Snow Day fundraiser from January 18-24.
