It’s a hops-filled weekend! And we’re not just talking about beer.
Kick off Friday with a nice cold brew in honor of National Beer Day (a perfect excuse to enjoy those happy hour specials), check out a new restaurant as part of Foodie First Friday. Later you can see the Easter Bunny (more hops!) but if that’s not your thing, check out a local matzah baking workshop.
