It’s the Weekend!

It's the Weekend!

Yes, July is over and we’re headed into the home stretch of summer…

Congrats for making it through yet another week, so now it’s time to get out there and soak up some of that summer fun. But before we head out for the big first weekend of August, we’d like to send a great big thank-you to everyone who dropped by this week to add encouragement, support, proof-reading and, yes, criticism, too. And thanks for helping to spread the word about

Of course, we couldn’t possibly cover the wide, wonderful scope of offerings around town without a dedicated and devoted bunch of wonderful writers, photographers, artists, tipsters and other assorted enablers who continually enrich us all with their contributions.
