Event-wise, you can't get much more global than Pura Vida Worldly Arts' latest shindig World Party: Potluck + International Danceathon. Aimed at getting the community to come together to appreciate a cultural fusion of music, dance and food, folks attending are encouraged to bring an international dish to share. All this without leaving the country/state/city — what a deal! Free. 7 p.m.-11 p.m. (Food will be served at 7 p.m. and music by Steven Pilker and Brad Pressley starts at 8:30 p.m.) Pura Vida Worldly Art, 1521 Central Ave. 704-335-8587. www.puravidaart.com.
