101. Treat Your Tushie to the “Best Seat in the House”

Home Newsroom 101. Treat Your Tushie to the “Best Seat in the House”

Isn’t it always great to have the best seat in the house? Wouldn’t it be even better if that seat wasn’t 63 years old and “…re-stuffed, re-sprung and re-upholstered too many times to count!” Well, your dreams are about to come true and the booties of Barrington will benefit with a fun event happening this weekend that’s all about replacing the seats in Barrington High School’s auditorium.

The BHS Fine Arts Boosters are hosting the “Best Seat in the House” dinner dance this Friday night, February 10th at the Onion Pub, 22221 N. Pepper Road in Lake Barrington. The funds raised will pay to replace the auditorium’s 600+ seats which were originally “…sized for a 1940’s population without coats, as they used to have a coat area.”  That’s according to the event’s chair and BHS mom, Chrissie Mena. Another event organizer and BHS mom, Joanne Dalessandro says, “The new seats will benefit the entire community, not just the students. The parents and grandparents come to all the performances. The Bataille Studio uses the theater for many performances as does the Barrington Youth Dance Ensemble, the group that performs the Nutcracker at BHS every year. All the speakers for college programs and community events use our BHS auditorium. We have fabulous musicals that the entire community comes out for. These seats are the originals and are 63 years old. The time has come!”

Good thing it’s easy to get “behind” the cause!  We’re all invited to the “Best Seat in the House” fundraiser this Friday night. The party starts at 6:30 and includes dancing, great food, a live auction and LIVE MUSIC!  It’s all about the seats who fill the seats, but people will surely be on their feet when the The Ron Bedal Orchestra takes the stage at the party this Friday night.

There will also be a must-see performances by Barrington High School’s top a capella groups, X and Premium Blend. Check out this Premium Blend take on Gloria Estefan hit song, Turn the Beat Around.

Tickets for “Best Seat in the House” are $75 each and are available online by clicking HERE. If you can’t make the party, but would like to sponsor one of the auditorium seats, the cost is $250 and you can make that contribution by clicking HERE.  To keep track of upcoming performances and BHS Fine Arts Department events, check out their blog at BarringtonFineArts.blogspot.com or visit their website at BarringtonFineArts.com.

Hi! 😁 Today's Word of the Day is 汉语 hàn yǔ -- literally "Han Language."

So, we're backtracking... or maybe just following the path of yesterday's post 😂. Either way, it might behoove you to know the context of this word.

The 汉 hàn in 汉语 refers to the Han ethnic group -- the largest of the 56 (government-proclaimed) Chinese ethnic groups. Some data have indicated that Han people comprise 90% or more of the population. So, it's unsurprising that this large group has gotten to name one of the most common terms for Mandarin. (Remember, Mandarin is what we learn at BHS and is the official language of China. There are other dialects/languages in existence.)

Anyhoo, the point is that if one is going to be referring to Mandarn Chinese as a language, it wouldn't hurt to know how to say it two ways! 🙃

普通话 and 汉语 can be used in most of the same contexts -- 汉语 might be a little less eloquent, but you won't get in trouble for using either. 🙂
