It’s the Weekend!

Let's get ice cream! Or maybe peanut butter sandwiches? Could we go swimming? Let's stop at the dog park!  Let's go to that store where the lady always gives me a cookie!  Look over there - kids on bicycles! Got any bacon?

Kudos to you for making it through another work week, so now it’s time to get out there and soak up some fun. But before we head out for the first weekend of August, we’d like to send a great big thank-you to everyone who dropped by this week to add encouragement, support, proof-reading and, yes, criticism, too. And thanks for helping to spread the word about Nippertown.com.

Of course, we couldn’t possibly cover the wide, wonderful scope of art and entertainment offerings around Nippertown without a dedicated bunch of wonderful writers, photographers, artists, tipsters and other assorted enablers who continually enrich us all with their contributions. So a big salute goes out to this week’s community contributors:

Timothy Reidy
Stanley Johnson
Andrzej Pilarczyk
Richard Brody
Tom Lindsay
Ed Conway
J Hunter
Rudy Lu
Bokonon
Ted Were
David Brickman
Larry Murray

Please consider adding your name to this list. Just send us something – a review, preview, interview, photo, list, rant, crayon drawing or whatever’s on your mind. Remember, Nippertown is your hometown, and we can’t possibly do this without your help.
