The big story this week is the approaching storm. While this thing will probably miss us and drop only a couple inches, we may luck out and get our first real storm of the season. Who knows this year though. I will be happy with anything I guess. There is some good music to catch this week, the best being Grace Potter & The Nocturnals on Thursday if you got tickets already. This show is sold out. Last but not least, America’s favorite sporting event happens on Sunday. Good luck if your team is still playing.
