Kids will be heading back to school soon, and the annual Labor Day weekend is just around the corner. The warm days of summer are not yet waning. Keep an eye on the weather; those Cape Verde storms are never quite predictable, and some will be heading our way.
It’s the time of year for adventurous dining experiences and good deals, so look around for special offers at your favorite venues, and take a chance on trying some new eating establishments.
We hope you enjoy perusing these Great Gables Events listings and find a few opportunities to spend some quality time with family and friends in the coming days.

Informed Consent at GableStage
Morality and bioethics collide on stage. With genomic breakthroughs happening at breakneck speed, we can learn more about what our futures may hold than ever before. But how much should we know? And who gets to decide? An electrifying new play by Deborah Zoe Laufer, one of the most exciting voices in American theater, Informed Consent is a powerful drama about one woman’s quest to answer the mysteries of science and her own life. Inspired by a landmark court case between one of the country’s largest universities and a Native American tribe based in the Grand Canyon, Informed Consent takes us into the personal and national debate about science v. belief, and whether our genetics defines our fate. The play begins this weekend and continues through August 27. GableStage is located at the Biltmore Hotel, 1200 Anastasia Ave. Call 305-445-1119. http://www.gablestage.org
