Howdy Folks….the Rodeo’s in town this weekend. Farmer’s market’s are bursting with juicy strawberries, amazing lettuces, and spinach galore. The Ivy Inn is having IVY FEST if you are up for a party. Lots to do around here. We’ll be checking out the book signing at ONE53 Thursday evening (they are also offering 25% off food and wine that night) and Jazam’s block party is a family favorite.
