Summer is almost over and if you’ve not got your plans together to blow it, don’t worry, we’ve got plenty of things you can get into. This week, possibly the most intriguing event is the Goliad kickoff party at Dan’s. It’s a “media production house” according to the site (which really is beautiful and we recommend checking it out). It seems to be reminiscent and connected to the Porch scene so we’re hoping for good things. Remember y’all. Life is short, hashtag #WDDI.
