Longest. Week. Ever. 

So long, in fact, that we plum forgot to post Stacy Servo’s New2Lou recommendations for the weekend yesterday. This springlike weather and the accompanying ratcheting up of our Ohio Valley allergies probably had something to do with it too.

Sorry ’bout that.

Stacey Servo and Amador Delatorre III created New2Lou for people new to Our Fair City, as well for locals looking to expand their social and entertainment horizons. Here are their recommendations for this weekend.

We’ve caught a nice cool break in the weather today and it looks amazing for the rest of the week too.  So it’s time to get outside and enjoy it before the temps heat up again.  Lucky you, there are a ton of great events going on this week! And we’ve hand picked the best of the best just for you, ’cause we’re cool like that.  So what’s on the radar this week?  Good old summertime fun: prohibition party, garden get down, picnic on the farm and a summer social, just to name a few.
