    Estimated reading time: 2 minute(s)

    It’s basically spring! Well, close enough. We’ll just pretend there wasn’t a blizzard here the other day. On the plus side, there are a few cool events going on this weekend, especially if you’re like us and you’re very classy and enjoy the symphony. If that’s not your thing, you can watch some SEC basketball or drink beer to benefit cats.
