Bridge Mix 2011

This weekend, you may need some time to unwind from all of this hockey tension, so why not check out one of these artsy events in town? Or if you're still in the mood to party, read up on the bike pub crawl. Sounds dangerous.

As always, we like to bring you up to speed on what happened last week. The Velopalooza bike ride event is on until the 19th, so we invite you to visit their Facebook page and check out all the updated pictures - and bonus - you still have time to join them on a bike ride!
