It’s November already! Which means it’s now acceptable to listen to holiday music in public. It also means those colorful fall leaves you admired have now fallen and turned into piles of dirty brown leaves you have to rake. But the biggest November event of all is that one holiday that truly brings families together – Black Friday! (Or Cyber Monday for you introverts.)
We hope all your shopping dreams (and foodie dreams) come true this season. In the meantime, we’ve lined up a few local events near the Stepping Stone neighborhood that will help you get the most out of your month.
