THE WEEKLY REPORT
On the agenda: Pups, boxers, and a good dose of holiday magic

This 1983 Christmas classic has been a part of the holiday festivities for decades. Wear your pink bunny pajamas. Mispronounce fragile. Say “fudge” instead of…that other word. Join the fun without having to worry about finding that one television channel that plays the movie for 24 hours straight starting Christmas Eve—and for free! The Details: The Box Garden at Legacy Hall, 7800 Windrose Avenue. 7:30 p.m.-10:30 p.m. FREE. Click here to register and for more information.
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 5–SUNDAY, JANUARY 13 | His name was Cassius Clay, but you know him as Muhammad Ali. His name was Lincoln Theodore Monroe Andrew Perry, but you know him as Stepin Fetchit. Or, do you really know either them at all?
