Spring in the city - finally! Buds on the trees, tulips sprouting up, patios and porches opening downtown. There’s just an energy about the city in the springtime that we love, and we’re so happy it’s here.
This Easter weekend, we’re planning on potting some pansies for the porch, and spending lots of time with family. Here’s what’s doin’:
With Earth Day coming up on Monday, we’re looking to do our part around the city. Last year, we spent an hour at Crandall Park picking up some of the garbage that had accumulated over the winter, and we’re planning to do the same this Saturday morning. There’s also an Earth Day event in City Park on Saturday at noon with food trucks and live music - details here!
We’re always up for a Block Party, especially one that includes BBQ, bourbon, and beer! The Park Theater is hosting a Johnny Cash Tribute Band on Saturday night, along with barbecue and all the fixins’. They’ll have the Doc’s Restaurant patio open (hope the weather holds out for it!), and if it rains they’ll continue the party inside. Grab tickets here.
It wouldn’t be Easter without sweets, and while we’re both huge fans of candy (bring on the orange and pink jelly beans!), there’s always room for more dessert. It’s become one of our Easter traditions to swing by Lake George Baking Company for some of their Lemon Cookies, and that’s just what we’ll be up to this weekend. They basically melt in your mouth, and they’re always a huge hit with our whole family.
Have a great weekend!
