Ease Into Fall
By Monica Barber
As Autumn approaches let yourself ease out of summertime and into the fall season. Ms. M typically enjoys September because it has some of the fall’s warmest and sunniest days of the season which allow for a lot of fun. So head into the season with your pumpkin spice, a side of fall festivals and music events but don’t forget the bargains. Here are a few ways to save while you extend your summer or push ahead into fall fun.
Extend your summer vibe just a little longer with good music. Tongue and Groove host second Fridays at P. Wexford’s Pub with a monthly acoustic set that plays from 8 pm to 11 pm. Let the good times roll and jam out with them to some of your favorite classic songs while you enjoy what the Pub has to offer. Info:
