Bored in Brookside? Get Out and Try Something New!

Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate-Kansas City Homes

You've heard of the dog days of me, this time of year is the worst!  No holidays, lots of long gray days and recently, almost constant ice, slush and snow.  (Although, I do enjoy a soft, several inches snowfall !) 


When it's chilly and dark, It's easy to spend all your freetime inside, under the blanket on the sofa watching Netflix and ordering in.  But if you are itching to get out and try something new...I've listed a few suggestions in this blog.  Invite some friends to meet up and try something different!  Explore someplace in Brookside and Waldo you've never been before and treat yo' self to kick off the winter blahs!

Music trivia on Monday nights, live tunes on Wednesdays.  Beer and food served.

What a great list of activities to chase away the winter blues, Mary. And even though our winters in Charlotte are much more moderate than yours, I would also rather deal with the dog days of summer than the cold.
