Posted January 20, 2014

Volunteers sort and organize clothes during the United Way's Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service at the Christ United Methodist Church in Chapel Hill.

— Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is Monday, and there are many community and service-oriented events taking place this week around the Triangle. See a full list of MLK events.

Monday: The 34th Annual Martin Luther King Interfaith Prayer Breakfast is this morning at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel in Durham. This year's theme is "50 Years Later: The Journey Continues In Pursuit of the Dream."

The United Way's MLK Day of Service is today. Their motto is to make the holiday “A Day On, Not a Day Off.” While volunteer opportunities for signature projects in Orange, Wake, Durham and Johnston counties are full, you can still make a difference by volunteering for another project. Visit their website to learn more.

Tuesday: Once: The National Tour opens at DPAC. In this love story set on the streets of Dublin, an Irish musician (Guy) and a Czech immigrant (Girl) are drawn together by their shared love of music. Tickets start at $35.

Wednesday: Busy Bee Cafe hosts a five course Allagash Brewing Beer Dinner. Tickets are $50, and reservations are required.

Thursday: There is another special dinner today. The Parlour and American Meltdown are collaborating for the "Rooted" Pop-Up Dinner. The dinner will have four courses, and tickets are $40, which include beer from Fullsteam.

Friday: Singer-songwriter Catie Curtis is performing at a benefit concert for Urban Ministries of Durham. There will also be food and refreshments from Bull City Burger & Brewery. Tickets are $15 in advance.
