Love Me Do, Hear, & See December 3rd – 9th, 2018Don’t panic! Yes, December is upon us, but there’s still plenty of time to get your holiday shopping, decorating, and caroling in. That being said, don’t forget to also set aside some time to enjoy yourself and the beautiful season that’s upon us. Now that most of the smoke has passed (best wishes to anyone affected by the fires), I’d like to encourage you to take advantage of what little sunny weather we have left. Here are a few events to check out for the week ahead:
Monday December 3rd
Start the new month off right and feed your brain with Trivia Night at The Local, hosted by Smartazz Trivia. Arrive at 7 pm to pick teams or bring your own and prepare to play at 7:30. There will be wine, there will be beer, and there most certainly will be a whole lot of sass going on!
