Try as we might to find some family-friendly entertainment, it seems this weekend’s Beat is all about the adults.
This is the perfect weekend to sip beer with friends, listen to some fantastic music, and if you feel up to it by Sunday, do it all again. All this running around may just have you feeling like a teenager again.
And with amazing bands coming to Jiffy Lube Live this weekend, might just have this sleepy bedroom community dwellers thinking there’s no place they’d rather be.
Time to call the baby-sitter.
