Ever wonder what the person sitting next to you at the theatre is thinking? Ever wanted to get a glimpse into a stranger’s mind?

Now is your chance, as renowned mind reader Jaymes White brings his show The Art of Mindreading to the Avalon Studio for three brain bending performances Dec. 11-13.

Through scores of ancient mind reading customs and traditions, White will accomplish “astonishing feats of memory, hypnotism and mind reading” on complete strangers, allowing audience members to tap into their subconscious and read each other’s minds.

White has appeared on the TV Show Mind Games and quickly took the Canadian entertainment world by storm, selling out his 2013 cross-country tour Paradox in days.

Don’t miss this unique show, only in the Glebe at the Avalon Studio.

Show times are at 8 p.m. Dec. 11, 2:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. Dec. 12 and 2:30 and 7 p.m. Dec. 13 with tickets at $25 per person. Groups of four or more get a ticket for $20. Click here for more information.

But if you’re not into letting a stranger into your mind this weekend, there are many other family-friendly activities to take in in the Glebe.

Sports fans have already penciled in 6 p.m. Sunday to watch the RedBlacks take on the Edmonton Eskimos for the 103rd Grey Cup in Winnipeg. But don’t sit at home and watch it, grab the kids and head down to the Arena at TD Place for a free viewing on the massive 32-foot HD video wall. The party starts at 5 p.m. but you must reserve a seat here.

Fans are encouraged to come down early and enjoy a total Grey Cup experience at one of the many of the local bars and eateries at Lansdowne and throughout the Glebe.

And if you’re looking for some cool early Christmas gifts, head over to The Christmas Market that launches this Saturday at the Aberdeen Pavilion. The market continues every Saturday and Sunday at noon until Dec. 20.

Score some cool pottery at the Potters Guild Pottery Sale at the Horticulture Building all weekend. Scores of artists will be showing off their clay and ceramic masterpieces – everything from mugs and plates to planters and decorative bowls. The show starts Friday at noon and continues throughout the weekend at 9 a.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. Sunday.
