Despite my lack of time to get this up and out the door, I have managed to piece together a relatively substantial selection of events for the week. And there may be even more to come.
The theme this week is “bring a partner.” Two of the events offer a discount for admissions purchased in pairs. The others, well, almost is anything more fun if you’ve got a friend with you anyway. None of this should discourage you from going solo (something I’ve been known to do).
