Calendar of Events

Community is what makes a city more than just a place to live. But it can be hard to meet people in a city because we are so busy and, at times, feel isolated even though we are surrounded by people every day.

I try to include events here that are of wide note (large sporting events and concerts, for example). But I also try to include smaller events from places like Meetup.com which might allow you to meet people on a more informal level.

Plus the weather!

Remember, you can’t fly unless you get out and stretch your wings now and then.
