First – what a crazy mess this is! We want you to know that we are thinking of you all and wishing you the best as the world sorts itself out.
We have decided to close our office to the public, but will be working behind the scenes until we get the “all clear” to reopen. Please follow us on Facebook and/or Instagram to stay updated on what’s up around here.
Normally we post a local event guide on Thursdays, but with all the closings/cancellations and the advice to stay home, we thought it might be more useful to pull together some ideas for keeping yourself entertained while we are all busy social distancing.
In an effort to appear smart and worldly, we are including some educational and culturally sophisticated things to do in this list, but don’t worry, we are busy working on a Netflix binge guide as well…
Here are some ideas to help keep you entertained!
