This will give you all the feels. It’s a funny, yet sad, show about soldiers who never quite recover from their experiences in war. You have plenty of opportunities to go see it, so don’t miss it!

Yay! Vegan menu! They’re adding a veg menu to their existing menu, so for all you who can’t go without your meat – don’t fear! For those of us who are meat-free, we can grab a mimosa have some great brunch.

Princess Party! Before Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella, take your little one to meet the princess! Tickets to this party are sold separately, but my guess is that they are WORTH IT.

Have you been to Saving Grace Vintage Boutique? It’s one of my favorite places on earth. Their furniture is amazing. So if you have an itch to DIY but you’re not sure where to begin, consider this workshop! You won’t be sorry!
