I'm Claudia Snell and I'm a web developer and photographer from Worcester, MA. This one of my personal projects. As with my other personal stuff, this is one part experiment and one part excuse to make another site about stuff that interests me. In this case, it's a Worcester thing. My plan right now is to create quarterly collections of stuff. My definition of "stuff" will be evolving over time. Winter 18/19 is the first group of "stuff".

I was at Worcester PopUP twice this week for cool things going on in there. On Friday, I was there for Behind the Hype panel discussion moderated by Dee Wells (Twitter: @DeeWellsOSD). On Monday was a performance by musician, poet, and artist, Milad Yousufi - His Art, His Music, His Journey presented by Music Worcester.
Worcester, we are lucky to have this space and the staff that works there to bring so many great events in. Go see some of the things!
The Dirty Gerund Poetry Show has a new YouTube channel so you can relive the Finest Ruckus any time you need to. Show is every Monday at Ralph's, 8:30p. There's open mic, featured poets, art and painting, and the Finest Ruckus in all the land. Go there.
Friday night. Halligan's. Silverbacks. Awesome. That is all.
#WOOSH (Woo Scavenger Hunt) was a friendly challenge from Victor Infante, Entertainment Editor at Worcester Telegram & Gazette. He gave us a list of some of Worcester's hidden treasures to visit and take a selfie. I got 10 of the items so I "won" (there was no prize, just bragging rights and an interview on Victor's podcast.)
Even though the official completion date was back in November, I'm trying to get to as many as possible. I'm keeping track of where I've been and where I still need to get to.
Rattlesnake Shake at Halligan's. Power blues by some of the best musicians in the area, very high energy. If you like Led Zepplin, Cream, Jimi Hendrix and similar, this band is for you.
So much coffee this week! I went to Acoustic Java to get a latte and some popovers from Asylum Pops. Then I went to Wooberry Ice Cream to get a Nutella latte from Jackson Effie Coffee Cabin. This was my kind of week!
Wooberry Ice Cream reopened after their yearly winter break and I had to stop by and get some sweet cream ice cream. I discovered that it's even more delicious with cashews on top. I'll be doing that again.
My friend, Matt Brodeur Music, was playing over at Wild Willy's Burgers so I stopped by to say hi and take some photos of him performing. Worcester has a lot of talented musicians and it's great to see them performing everywhere.
Do you like to knit or crochet? Want to learn? Knitscape can help. They've got beautiful stuff, classes, and a Knit Night meetup. Reduce stress, make friends, make something nice for yourself. Or, if you're like me, make something not so nice looking that your pet will adore #crochetwrecks (But seriously, he's adorable with the "blanket" I made).
Rattlesnake Shake at Greendale's. I really like this band. They've got great energy and are all excellent musicians. They also have a lot of fun together so it's a good time to watch them.
I made it out to the Silverbacks' annual holiday show. They had a great crowd, everyone was dancing. The band was amazing, as always.
When the weather is warm and the venue is animal-friendly, my bearded dragon, Ash, accompanies me. She's been to stores, farmers markets, poetry readings, parties, art galleries, concerts in the park, swap meets, pop-up events and a bunch of other stuff.
If you are an animal-friendly event or venue, please let me know. Ash and I may stop by. We also like to share that animals are welcomed so everyone knows if they can bring their non-human friends along.
