The Night Kitchen reopens at new Peterborough location
The Night Kitchen recently reopened in its new location at 168 Hunter Street in downtown Peterborough.

Benefit for local musician Rick Young
There are not many people who haven’t seen Rick and Gailie perform at some point. The couple has had to take a hiatus from performing as Rick Young fights cancer.
The couple, who have performed at dozens of benefits for fellow musicians over the years, are now the recipients of such a benefit concert on Sunday, November 19th. Everyone from Jackson Delta to Bobby Watson to Al Black and the Steady Band and many others will perform at The Venue in downtown Peterborough from 1 – 10 p.m.
Tickets are $25, available at Moondance and The Venue and online and, if you are a business, it’s a good opportunity to hang a poster or contribute to the raffle table.
To help out, call Phil Connor at 705-768-4084. For more information about the concert, visit Facebook.
