After an improbable “run the table” of 6 wins following 4 losses, the Pack Attack is in the playoffs, with a home game against the dreaded Giants. This is your #1 thing this weekend, folks. If you do nothing else, open your eyes at a TV on Sunday afternoon. #WinOutOrWeOut

The hardest hitting ladies this side of the Lake are back in action. We’ve written about how exciting a Brewcity Bruisers women’s roller derby bout (match) is before, and the first go of 2017 is bound to crank up the intensity.

It seems like everyone and their mama is getting married this year. Though we’ve been happily wed for 2 years now (cotton!), I still remember how influential the Wonderful World of Weddings expo was. We picked out our awesome DJ, caterer, and day-of assistant here, plus I got to eat all the cake and drink all the champagne I wanted! If you’re planning or thinking about a wedding, this is a must-attend event.
