HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (WAVY) – Take a step back in time to the roaring 20’s with Anne McNamara as your emcee at the “ABSOLUT ARTini” event at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) this Thursday evening. There will be a red carpet entrance to greet you, ARTini’s competing for your vote from local restaurants to be the best of the evening, open bar with throwback “bathtub gin” cocktails, fine fare, dancing, silent art auction, VIP area and more. It promises to be a fantastic evening!
The ABSOLUT ARTini event is MOCA’s spring fundraiser which is produced by Generation MOCA, a committee of rising business, civic, and social leaders who want to create a positive impact in the Hampton Roads community through the arts. All proceeds from ABSOLUT ARTini support MOCA’s exhibition and education programs.

Hang with WAVY’s own Jeff Edmondson as he helps remind everyone how very important it is to “wait to text”. He’ll be handing out thumb bands and magnets at the
Camp Allen Health and Safety Fair. If you add in a little ‘Minnesota nice’ – he’ll probably take a photo with you – especially if you promise to use the hashtags #W82TXT #WAVY and share it with our Hampton Roads community via social media!
Meet him at the Camp Allen Health and Safety Fair located at the Elmore Marine Corps Marine Corps Exchange at Camp Allen on Friday, May 2nd from 11-1 p.m.

Come enjoy a Tides Game and get a free blanket to keep the chill away through the game (first 2,000 fans age 18+ get a free blanket!), but make sure you’re there for the beginning! Chief Meteorologist Don Slater will be arriving in style via our Chopper 10 to throw out the first pitch of the game! He’ll be sticking around to visit and sign autographs in the concourse area behind home plate on the second level! This is a great opportunity to introduce your aspiring weather (little) people to meet a seasoned meteorologist and enjoy a wonderful family night.
