We are so lucky to live in a hub where things naturally pass through and have enough people to justify throwing huge events. Still, people have a hard time finding out what’s happening. Too many choices does exist.

I spent way too long looking up all the things that have already been announced and here are things coming up in the next month or two you can add to your calendar for some nearby fun!

Put “there is nothing to do” to rest. You sound spoiled. Open yourself up to more things that aren’t going to the same 3 bars with your friends. Really experience the area again. Something old can always feel new with a change of heart. Live in your city like a tourist sometimes and life will feel more like a vacation!



Bye, Friends!
