It’s Thursday, which means we’ve rounded up a bunch of fun things happening locally in the next week or so. And no, there are no otter-related events happening. Sorry. I just threw that little guy up there because it’s been a weird couple of weeks and I feel like we all need more cute otter face in our lives. Here’s our list of event recommendations:
