Good day on this chilly Wednesday.
Feeling left out this holiday season? The Green Door Blues Bar and Grill offers a Festivus for the rest of us. Based on an episode of "Seinfeld," Festivus is a celebration for those looking for something a little different from the stereotypical holiday parties. Local cover band Global Village will help folks rock around the Festivus Pole with its array of funk, R&B, Motown, disco and classic rock tunes. 9 p.m. Green Door Blues Bar and Grill, 2005 E. Michigan Ave., Lansing. (517) 482-6376, greendoorlive.com.
Ukulele players of all skill levels — from "mastery" to "hey-I-want-to-try-that" — are invited to Marshall Music's free Ukulele workshop today. There, an instructor will be on hand to help those who want to learn as well as those who just want to polish their skills a bit. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own uke, but instruments can be borrowed from the store. 6-7:30 p.m. FREE. Marshall Music, 3240 E. Saginaw St., Lansing. (517) 337-9700, marshallmusicweb.com.
