What You're Doing Tonight: May 11

We're kicking off your Monday Night with a unique singles event. 

Socrates Cafe is a monthly singles night/discussion forum that takes place at Dragonfly in Stamford.  Led by Patricia Rattray, participants grapple with questions posed by Socrates.  The forum uses a format consistent with the book "Six Questions of Socrates", by Chris Phillips, which is a "modern-day journey of discovery through world philosophy."

So put on your thinking caps and head to Stamford!  The Socrates Cafe runs from 6:30-9 p.m. tonight.  Call (203) 357-9800 for more information. 

Once you've met your match, keep the intellect sharp by heading to the Bean & Leaf in New London.

The cafe and roaster is holding an International Film Festival.  Tonight, they're screening "Sopyonje," an Cannes Film Festival award winning movie by Korean director Im Kwon Taek.  It tells of the story of a family of traditional Korean singers struggling to make a living in the modern world.

The screening starts at 7:30, and there's no charge to get in -- but donations are welcomed.

For a little more traditional entertainment, head to Toad's Place in New Haven.

Kate Voegele is bringing her singer/songwriter talents to the stage at 8:00 p.m.

If her music isn't all that familiar, you may recognize Voegele for her talents on the small screen.  She's gained attention for her roles on a pair of popular TV shows.  Voegele has been building a devoted fan base the old fashioned way, by lots of touring.  Her latest album, "A Fine Mess," is described as pop-folk with a tween-friendly vibe (which makes it kind of an indie Hanna Montana?).

Tickets for the show are just $15.

Enjoy your Monday everyone!
