Say it isn’t SNOW!  Well, at least the impending snow gives US and the NEWS something to talk about- other than you know who and you know what (wink, wink). We are ready to escape the TV, and the campaign madness if only for the weekend. We know you have to be feeling the same way, so we pulled together a Hot List of events to keep your mind occupied for the weekend. Check out our top picks for this weekend, Friday, March 4 – Sunday, March 6. From Art Loops to A Murder at Bellevue Hall and from a Father and Son B-Ball tournament to a Great Women in History Program, there’s plenty to keep you going this weekend.
