Choo Choo Part Deux: Music, Culture & Football — all in one handy place :)

Happy Friday!

Thanks for your patience party train. Will try to have your world more organized for next week. Lots of great things going on each day – musicals, ACDC cover band, get naked at carnaval, enjoy free chili at central market, Chinese new year special festivals, oh and there’s some football game on Sunday. Have a fabulous weekend 🙂

Five Miscellaneous things:
a. See attached. This is how I will attempt to settle any financial disputes from now on. Doesn’t work well, but hilarious.
b. Also, you might want to try a free dance class or two. Saturday is Free day of dance: free dance classes being offered all over the city including ballroom and social dancing. www.freedayofdance.com
c. This Saturday, Career Testing at the Human Potential Center. Career Testing Workshop to combine your skills, dreams, creativity, money. This workshop, using supportive group interaction and the Self-Directed Search standardized test, will help you find out. For those of you looking for work – or guidance around your next career – might be a cool exercise. Of course you could always not spend $75 and just do some soul searching but its nice to have options
d. Super foods for SuperBowl: The Bacon Explosion or the SuperBowl Snack Stadium. Which is the ultimate food… or the ultimately disgusting!
e. Buy one get one free food: this guy was nice enough to share it out on wireddeals.com. apparently you can share with friends and family. Just not valid on valentines day… but if any of you boys are taking your girls to Fridays, just go ahead and stick yourself in the eye with a fork. Coupons: fridays2.PNG fridays3.PNG
