What’s on the radar this week? Music, Food, Art and Ideas, what more could you ask for in this fine city of ours? The summer season is kicking up the heat and your social calendar is certainly following suit.  You asked for it things to do and our awesome town folk responded.  It’s hard to find an evening where there isn’t something going on.
