Here's what to do in the community this week.
It's Memorial Day Weekend and that means the unofficial kick-off to summer is here. But you don't have to wait until Monday to celebrate because there is so much happening around town this week that you might want to take an extra day off.
From a social gathering and fashion show at the Porto Vista Hotel, to getting your Glamazon at Rich's on Saturday, and DiskoTeka on Monday you're going to forget about May Gray.
Plus so much more in this week's "Out & About."
