Boogie on the Bricks '11, guaranteed fun!

This weekend is the annual Boogie on the Bricks in Athens, home of Ohio University in southeastern Ohio - about two hours away. I have a lot of family in the Athens area and Lindsay graduated from OU so we've spent a significant amount of time there. Athens is a nice little town with about a dozen bars in its downtown and the majority of the streets have remained brick - beautiful to look at, especially given the beautiful surroundings of the OU campus, but a little bumpy when traveling by car. There's an interesting mix of galleries, shops and restaurants in the area too. The main street is closed off for Boogie on the Bricks, a stage is set up at the end of the street and several local bands play all afternoon and into the evening.
There's a group of us "girls" going and we're looking forward to a great time. Those attending? Both of my daughters, my best friend of 34 years, my oldest daughter's best friend since second grade, and my oldest daughter's future stepmother-in-law. We're spending the night and because there will most likely be a little alcohol along with the boogie, we'll be cabbing it to the downtown and back to the hotel.
I hope everyone has a great weekend! I have a birthday this Sunday and have decided to call it "springing forward" rather than "getting older" - it softens the blow just a tad!
