Well it’s safe to say summer is over. I don’t know about you but it was so unbearably hot and sticky I could hardly enjoy any time outdoors. Good news is though since it’s nearly September the weather has cooled to a chilling 80-85 degrees. Brrrrrrrr!

This weekend we have an eclectic mix of events. And of course there’s a wine tasting!
