Is everyone ready to drink from the firehose? Because that's what's about to happen. With school back in, the town's population seemingly doubled overnight - along with the amount of events that are totally worth your time to attend. This week, it wasn't hard to find ten. So now may be a good time to make the public service announcement that if you've got a hot tip for a show, shoot us an email. While we're at it, make sure and remember to #WDDI your Instagram and Facebook pics if you want to be included in our weekly Monday morning What We Did post.
