spring has sprung wide

Thursday, December 2, 2010

This week in Greenville NC.

You can't build the biggest snowman ever in your front lawn, you can't go sled-riding down the hill at Firestone park, you can't even throw a lousy snowball. What are you going to do with the family this weekend? How about enjoying some beautiful art, warming drinks, delicious food, and seasonal music, right here in Greenville, NC? (And it will be warmer than checking out the Macy's windows in Market Square, guaranteed.) 

Join me for...
