LET’S TRY THAT AGAIN!
Sometimes Mother Nature is all sunshine and rainbows. And sometimes she unleashes a torrential downpour that soaks your salad and drowns your downward dog. That was the case a couple of weeks ago, when we had to postpone our extracurricular offerings. But the forecast this week is GLORIOUS, which means the FREE FUN IS ON! (Can we get an “AMEN?”?!?!) Head to the Medford Farmers Market, 3 to 7pm Thursday at the Condon Shell, for free yoga with Jenna of the Corner Studio at 5:30pm(!), the inaugural appearance of new vendor Pony Shack Cider(!!), and a free concert on the Condon Shell stage by blues-rocker Julie Rhodes at 6:30pm brought to you by the Chevalier Theatre(!!!). You know what to do: Come early, get your groceries and picnic supplies, bust out a warrior 2, reward those muscles with a massage, then snag a spot in the grass and settle in for some sweet tunes. Now that’s more like it!
