Arbor Annie’s Weekend Roundup – January 11-13

After two weeks off for Winter Break, normal activity schedules are starting to resume around town. My grand catch-up plans after a week of vacation  were derailed by a nasty cold. Hopefully I managed to add all the events for this weekend and next week to the calendar.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - January 11-13

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

We were at Disney for the second week of winter break. After a bright and early flight last Saturday, we managed to take down the outdoor decorations while it was warm. Then we discovered a dead car battery, so did not proceed any further on Sunday. That means we will be taking down the Christmas trees this weekend. If you still have live trees that need to be disposed of, check out our Christmas Tree Disposal options.

The big event this weekend is the start of Restaurant Week on Sunday.
