IN THIS WEEK’S RUNDOWN: COMEDY, SKATE NIGHT, AND REGGAE CONCERTS

The mayoral race in our city is heating up (Fred Richardson, nice sign on Springhill Ave! Well played Sir. Well played.)

We’ve got some great candidates (some would disagree) and we also currently have a great mayor (others would also disagree).

The choice will be yours to make on August 24th, 2021.

You just have to decide if you like the current energy in the city or if you’re looking for a different type of energy.

Either way, we wish your candidate luck.

A Rundown Update: This will be the last week that we send out a weekly email formatted in this fashion. Going forward, we will email as needed, so for event information, be sure to bookmark our events page!
