Wednesday, Oct. 24, is PechaKucha Night at the Harbor View Hotel. Is this a new kind of trivia night, bingo or sporting event? Wrong, wrong and wrong again.

PechaKucha night started in Japan in 2003 as an event for creative people to get together, network and show their work. It is now a worldwide celebration where everyone uses the same format: each participant gets to present 20 images for 20 seconds each. This keeps the evening concise and flowing.

The event is from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. in the Menemsha Room at the Harbor View Hotel. Everyone is invited, but reservations are required to present work. Call Jessica at 508-627-4441, extension 117 or email her at

The event is free.
