>Thursday- spring music, punk bars and BFF’s

7 Apr

Today is one of those days that i just want to laze about watching he-man with my daughter and eating pie. After working my butt off writing, blogging, over volunteering and being a full time mama to a rambunctious toddler who knows how to destroy a house in 3.2 seconds… I think i deserve a little down time. But tonight i plan on heading over to Mojos ( weather permitting, hay it is my “day off” after all!) and dancing like a Muppet with the huntress (said rambunctious toddler). What are your plans for this slightly gloomy day with a hint of storms on the horizon?Here are some events to get you started!

Grounds for coffee spring music series w/chimney birds– If Mae West met Neil Young, it would sound a little something like The Chimney birds. Join us for a night of music we like to call folk mayhem.
