One more dose of ink for the “Monk at 100” concert at the Whitney Center for the Arts at Sheridan College Saturday night. PUBLIQuartet of New York City, the current quartet-in-residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art whose resume includes Carnegie Hall and the Newport Jazz Festival, are the featured artists. The concert will celebrate the music of Thelonius Monk (1917-1982), one of the most influential composers and jazz pianists. The New York Times praised PUBLIQuartet as one of the most “independent minded” groups in music today.

The concert begins at 7 p.m.

The fall/winter edition of Destination Sheridan is out and about throughout Sheridan County and tourism centers in Montana, Wyoming and South Dakota.

It’s free and available on local news racks.

Good to send, too, to friends and relatives.

“My feet are cold!” the wife says to the husband.

“Well,” he replies, “all you have to do is go to bed and have a brick at your feet.”

“I tried that,” she said.

“Did you get the brick hot?”

“Get it hot? It took all night just to get it warm.”
