The Soulmobile Eternal is looking for a place to crash in Allentown, Harrisburg or NYC, on April 11 and yes, I can vouch for their good-guyness.

Gary Marzolf has opened a Yoga studio in Oil City’s National Transit Building:

My goal is to create a very supportive and nuturing environment for teaching yoga. I like to include music, chanting and meditation in my classes. I'm currently offering a restorative class, a fast-paced vinyasa class and several gentle yoga flow
classes at the studio. I'm planning some Saturday classes, one being a class for men.

Check out the studio’s website:

An exhibition of comic book art by Chris Yambar comes to Youngstown through May 9 at YSU’s SMARTS gallery.

A creative coloring and drawing contest will be held for young children during the exhibition, featuring Itsi Kitsi. Contest winners will have their images included on a limited-edition print, which will be revealed when the show closes on May 9. The winners will be invited to publicly sign copies of the print with Yambar, who will give a lecture about his career and sign his comic books for fans on that day.

To enter the contest, contact SMARTS at (330) 941-2787 or . Deadline to enter is April 9.
