Put on your pajamas and dancing shoes


The first full week of the year is almost over! But that also means the first weekend is about to start!

With so many options out there, why not start out doing something different in 2019? Here's a little bit of what's happening this weekend:

Sometimes it feels good to just hang out in your pajamas, and I don't mean on just a Sunday spent at home. We're talking Saturday night, going out in your PJs! Head over to Craft Kitchen and Brewery and indulge in some comedy for their Punny Pajama Party! It's going to be a relaxing and fun showcase of local comedy.

It never hurts to add some more smooth moves to your repertoire in case you have to hit the dance floor at a given moment. Every Sunday night you can get some Lindy Hop lessons brought to you by Again Swing Dance and Sara Lee Conners. There are two classes, one for beginners and one for those at that intermediate level.

And if you don't know what Lindy Hop is, here's a taste:
