If having some alone time this weekend is your preference, here are some ways I enjoy the neighborhood:
- Walking across the Pulaski Bridge – a great way to admire the city lights and catch the last of Christmas decorations along the way.
- Spotting cats in windows – I try to spot at least 5 before going home. If it’s too hard, cat graphics of some kind can count too!
- Sunset at Transmitter Park – the hues of pinks and oranges are beyond gorgeous.
However you choose to engage with our neighborhood this weekend, remember to protect yourselves and others this holiday season. Let’s keep it as festive as we can!
