The summer fun continues with some lovely happenings this weekend! I have something for the foodie, something for the athlete, something for the Netflix geek and something for the trendiest people on the block.
Who says riding bikes and drinking beer don’t go together? An event in honor of this years Tour de France will prove you wrong.
So many say they love the show “The Office,” and it’s easy enough to toss around a punch line or mimic Dwight’s awkwardness — but do you know Pam’s favorite yogurt flavor? If you know the answer, pat yourself on the back and show up for “The Office Trivia” at Bok Tower Gardens on Friday.
If you’re looking for something to do with a group of friends, I highly recommend heading to Tampa on Sunday. Armature Works, the space housing Heights Public Market, is hosting the Indie Flea. The place will be stacked with treasures and drool-worthy eats.
Finally, “Footloose the Musical” is opening at our local community theatre this Thursday. The super entertaining, upbeat show is sure to impress couples and families alike.
