THANKSGIVING has come and gone and now you can trade the stress about cooking for the stress of holiday shopping. Yay!
What better antidote than some good music? Come out EVERY SUNDAY in DECEMBER as GH joins The Trio at “The Family Dog”…and then celebrate the upcoming New Year with a celebration of George Gershwin. It’s the ticket to inner peace, truly.
A nice glass of your favorite beverage will help, too…and you can get that anywhere we are.
Many blessings on your month. We continue to be blessed by YOU. Thanks for being out there!
