Hello Monday! It’s that time again for The Weekly Round-Up. Check here for a quick overview of all the events happening each week. Click on individual event links for full details. You can also view the full month’s events by clicking the calendar link near the top of our menu bar on the right.
PLEASE MAKE SURE TO CONTINUOUSLY CHECK THE ROUND-UP SECTION DURING THE WEEK FOR NEW ADDITIONS AS WELL AS OUR CALENDAR AT THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER OF OUR PAGE. OCCASIONALLY WE ADD SOME EVENTS TO THE CALENDAR ONLY (NOT THE WEEKLY ROUND-UP) TOWARDS THE END OF THE WEEK.
This week is a bit slower than usual as we all prepare to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. Most of us will be busy preparing for the big day. The night before turkey day, referred to as Black Wednesday, will be the big night to go out. The masses will also be in full force Friday starting in the wee hours of the night to snag all the best shopping deals for Black Friday. So, enjoy the quiet week and think about what you are grateful for this year. We, NowYouKnow, is very grateful for each and every one of you – our readers – who has made NYK a huge success! We wouldn’t be here without all of you. THANK YOU!
