Love Me Do, Hear, & See August 13th – August 19th, 2018We’re at that sweet point of the month where summer and fall collide. What does that mean exactly? Warm weather is coming and so is delicious food. Waffles and tacos and margaritas, oh my! So, while the sun is still shining late into the evening and the kids are busy back-to-school shopping, enjoy your evenings out…weekdays, too!

There’s nothing like a Tuesday trip to the theatre – what else are you doing on a Tuesday night? This Tuesday, head to The Strand Theater for a performance of “Where the Boys Are”, a new work brought to you by FaultLine Theater. The show kicks off at 8 pm, and as it only runs eighty minutes, you’ll have plenty of time for some post-show cocktails and taco Tuesday specials nearby.
