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?

Congratulations! You made it through another work-week, and now it’s time to get out there and soak up as much weekend as humanly possible.

But before we head out for some big first-weekend-of-August fun we’d like to send out a 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:
