Wondering what to do tonight? No need to check your planner-we’ve got your daily post on what’s happening around town.

Let’s roll
Chattanooga Parks and Recreation is partnering with Outdoor Chattanooga to bring kayaking off the Ocoee and into the Brainerd Community Center. The Rapid Learning Whitewater Program will begin perfecting the skill of rolling the one-man vessel safely and effectively.

In addition, the adaptive kayaking class will be aimed this week at introducing the water sport to Chattanoogans with cognitive, intellectual and physical disabilities. Next week, Jan. 16, the program will turn its attention to veterans with disabilities. Call Elaine at 423-697-1345 for details.


When: 5-6 p.m. for the adaptive class and 6-7 p.m. and 7-8 p.m. for the Rapid Learning Whitewater Program
Where: 1010 N. Moore Road
How much: Free for the adaptive classes and $50 for an individual for the Rapid Learning Whitewater Program

Sausage and bacon and ham, oh my!
The food at Hair of the Dog is often overlooked, coming in an undeserved distant third in patrons’ hearts to the list of libations and the porch. Today, the kitchen is cranking out the house take on a classic plain Jane dish-beans and rice-with a few additions that demonstrate why the food menu should never be tossed aside. The downtown pub’s beans and rice dish includes three sausages, bacon and Tasso ham gently simmered for hours in a batch of spices and served with Tabasco white rice.

When: Kitchen closes at 2:30 a.m.
Where: 334 Market St.
How much: $8
