Best Bets for Saturday, Feb. 23

Looking for something to do today? Here are The Salem News' Best Bets:

Start your Saturday with a hearty breakfast from 8 to 11 a.m. at the Masonic Hall, located at 20 Washington St., Beverly. The community breakfast includes all-you-can-eat blueberry and plain pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage and all the fixings. Admission costs $5 for adults and $3 for children, and proceeds will benefit the Masons' charitable programs. For more information, contact George Haile at 978-807-4150.

Join the Endicott Singers and Boston-area gospel choirs for a concert featuring various art forms of gospel music, including work songs, spirituals, hymns, and more. The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. in Endicott's Center for the Arts, located at 376 Hale St., Beverly. The gospel journey will explore the connection between gospel and hip-hop. Also performing are Endicott College's dance students of the Repertory Dance Ensemble alongside guests from the New England Conservatory, Northeastern University and other dancers. General admission costs $10 and $5 for seniors and students of other institutions; Endicott ID holders are admitted free of charge. For more information, visit, or call 978-998-7700.

Listen in on A. R. Gurney’s “Love Letters,” a story that evolves as two characters, played by locals Patricia Zaido and John Archer, read the notes, cards and letters sent to and from each other throughout a span of almost 50 years. Directed by Aimee Oliver, the performance is a “Reader’s Theater Benefit” for the Salem Theatre Company. The curtains open at 7:30 p.m. at the Salem Theatre Company, 90 Lafayette St., Salem. Tickets cost $25. For tickets and details, visit, email, or call 978-790-8546.
