Picasso, a Gaming Expo, and a Vintage Double Shot!

Hello folks! I hope everyone is enjoying some slightly cooler temperatures and the ramp up back into school activities. There is a new Picasso/Rivera exhibit opening this week, and I’m crazy excited about the Straight No Chaser/Postmodern Jukebox concert on Tuesday. August 8th really is a beautiful day.

As always, please share any events that I’ve missed in the comment section, and you can submit future events to me directly. Don’t forget to check The Ongoing Events page for long term exhibits and shows, as well as The Kid List for family-centric activities!
