We’re Back!

Its been a while! But, since summer will be drawing to a close this week (HOORAY! Oh? Just Me? Okay..), I figured it was time to get back to bringing you awesome ‘Burgh events for every day of your week.

In addition to the biweekly event posts you are all used to, I’m also going to start bringing you  reviews of my favorite local businesses (coffee, cafes, yoga studios, etc). I think it is so important to support the small businesses in our area, so I want to share with you some of my favorite ones I have found throughout the years! Also, since I am now a dog mom, I’ll be occasionally publishing some posts tailored to dog friendly locations throughout the city. Lots of fun to look forward to!

Now, let’s get down to business. Remember to click on the event titles for more details!

There will be pick up games from 7-9, and a team tournament style from 9-10. No need to bring a team – come with a friend or head down solo to meet some new ones…either way it is worth checking out. Because, let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to throw things after Monday morning meetings?
