We're back with some fun events for you!
After taking an extended holiday hiatus from event posts we are back with some cool weekend events. January is notoriously slow (we call it the "holiday event hangover effect) and Covid was spiking, so we took a little break. Now that hospitalizations are back down and there are more events to discuss we are back at it! Remember to always be responsible and wear your mask when out and about while also observing social distancing protocols.  On to the fun!
