Did you ever have one of those weeks where it seems like everything doesn’t go quite as planned? Maybe you forgot your lunch, or you got stuck in the rain without an umbrella. If you had a week that wasn’t so wonderful, use this weekend to redeem yourself. They always say, “don’t eat your feelings,” but with all that’s going on — farmers markets, breakfasts, and bike rides — how can you not?

Then we’ll bring you back down to New Hope, hopefully sober enough to drive. Buy your tickets here!
