Looking for something different to do at lunchtime? Starting today, Tues., Jan. 8, and running every Tuesday through Feb. 12, you can "Picnic at the Opera" at the City Opera House in Traverse City. Bring a lunch and be part of a live TV musical variety show from noon to 1 p.m. benefitting local nonprofits. Local songstress Miriam Pico will welcome different musicians and artists every week: tomorrow it's Blake Elliot and E. Minor along with painter Charlie Murphy to benefit the Women's Resource Center. Free admission, donations encouraged.
