48 suggestions for the week ahead


Hi there!

We get questions from time to time about how we choose events for these posts, so I wanted to share a little bit about the process.

  • Every week, I check the websites of 46 primary sources (mostly event venues and local organizations). I also look at a few aggregators, Facebook, and other community calendars to make sure we didn’t miss anything.
  • I add in events that you shared via our events submission form.
  • Hayley edits things for me, checking for errors before we send this off to you.

From start to finish, this post alone took 11 hours of work.

If you find our news and events updates helpful, would you consider becoming a supporting member today? Advertising helps pay some of the bills, but we need your support to keep this going in the long term.

The monthly membership price is $4.99 — or roughly 1/2 of what you’d pay for a beer at certain concert venues in town. There’s also a yearly option for $49.99.

Have a good week!
